Astrid Lindgren’s land
Many visitors think Fagerhult looks like Noisy Village in the books by Astrid Lindgren. The real Noisy Village is called Pelarne and is situated outside the town of Vimmerby. In the city you can visit Astrid Lindgren’s World and the home of her childhood, Näs. It takes you about 30 minutes by to Vimmerby.
