Norrby is a dream for all children.
Here there is everything a small human being can ever need, forest, fields, flowers, baths, cats and lambkins. The forest and agriculture is run ecologically and we are well protected from motor traffic and pollution. In the villages nearby there are swimming schools as well as horseback riding facilities.
If you want to do excursions there are plenty of places to visit. Here we present some suggestions that our family has enjoyed:
The world of Astrid Lindgren is situated in Vimmerby, not far away from Lönneberga and Mariannelund. A world of fairytales with Emil, Pippi, Karlsson and all the other familiar characters. www.alv.se
