Vimmerby is known as the birthplace of Astrid Lindgren, Sweden’s most loved children’s book author (creator of Pippi Longstocking and many others). However, Tareq finds that the area is also well-regarded for its cuisine. From the children’s theme park who only serves locally produced, healthy food to the friendly moose that roam the hills, Vimmerby has a lot to offer visitors.
