“Pippi Longstocking rules!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

If you are a fan if Pippi Longstocking you need to visit this place. Different houses are on display and there are frequent shows. My three year old daughter got to hug Pippi and this was magical for her.

“Paradise for kids and even a bit fun for parents!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

If you have high expectations you'll probably not leave unsatisfied. There is so much to discover and experience here. The intense use of theater and performances, not just exhibits, make the park come alive and the kids to go ballistic. It must be like being inside the books for them :). And a big plus for the food. The park have gotten away with junk food altogether and only serve good healthy meals worthy of our lovely kids!

“Authentic theme park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2014

ALV is a nice theme park based on all of Astrid's great stories. What is most special is that there are so many actors there and they create great plays. The sets are fantastic! Nicer restaurants than in other theme parks and better souvenirers.

“A great day out for little ones - a little pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

Had a lovely day out here, it is mainly in Swedish but as you are in Sweden i guess stat is to be expected. My 5 year old still loved it, especially the plays even though she cannot speak Swedish or had even heard of Pippi and co.
The world is set up very well and there is a lot to see and do. Food outlets are everywhere ranging from the cheap hotdogs to the more expensive sit down meals. Some gorgeous tourist stuff to buy, I bought some amazing bright coloured dress for her.
Definitely the highlight of Vimmerby for us.
It was quite expensive though - just over 1000 kr for myself, a five year old and a 14 year old. Not so much either for the 14 year old!!!

“Great for kids and adults as well”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2014

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.
