We had a full day of fun in the ALV. All over the area different scenes from the famos storys are presented and you have to possiblility to enter for instance the Villa Villekulla or the home of Emil. Even we did not speak Swedish we were able to follow the certain shows.

This park is different from most other theme parks in that there are no rollercoasters or other rides. Instead, the entire park is made up of things from various Astrid Lindgren books. All the famous/popular stories are covered, and there are many shows throughout the day.

Although it is primarily targeted on Swedish-speaking visitors (all shows etc are performed in Swedish), it is still a very nice full day visit. Hopefully they will some day add shows in English/German/etc to make it more friendly to an international audience.

Expect to spend at least two days in total; it is quite a long drive from any of the major cities. Driving there one day, staying over night in Vimmerby and then going to the park the next day is a good idea to ensure the kids had enough rest before going through the park.

Well worth visiting, especially for the younger kids (target age is ~3-7 year old).

A very nice place for kids, would be five stars for Swedish speakers. The plays are realistic and if you know Arstrid Lindrgen's stories you don't need to literally understand every word. We only knew Pippi's story but the kids loved the other plays as well, especially the singing parts. It really pays off to buy a family ticket for two days. Highly recommended.

If you at least know who Astrid Lindgren was and have read at least one of her books, this place is great for you. Different books are represented in different parts of park. There are no gadgets, but good atmosphere.
