Thursday the 11th of august
The pre tour continues north in your own pace.

Recommended attractions in the area of Vimmerby are:

Astrid Lindgrens Värld www.alv.se
“Welcome to Astrid Lindgren’s World, where fairy tales come to life!
Astrid Lindgren’s World is actually many worlds, all in one place. Walking around the park you pass well-known settings such as Cherry Tree Valley and Wild Rose Valley. Not far away, but in a whole other world, you’ll discover Matt’s Fort. Walk on and wouldn’t you know it, there’s Villekulla Cottage. And on the way you’ll have probably already stopped at Karlsson’s Roof and Katthult. These are all settings taken from Astrid Lindgren’s stories. But of course they wouldn’t be nearly as exciting without the people who live there. What would Villekulla Cottage be without Pippi? Or Matt’s Fort without robbers?
It is also possible to visit the well-known movie scenes from some of Astrid Lindgrens movies. The city of Vimmerby is also well worth visiting.

MX World www.mxworld.se
A blend of unique technical innovations and bikes that have won World Championships, ridden by the great sporting legends of Motocross and Enduro. Thus far, this has resulted in a collection of around 230 bikes where each machine has its own, unique story. And what we are seeing now is only the beginning.
We will meet you at MX-World between 12-14 pm.

From 15 pm, we will be at Kisa Bilmuseum www.kisabilmuseum.se
Very nice collection of Saabs, but also other brands.

For those interested in staying in the area, we recommend Malexander Camping. The tour leaders might continue to Vadstena.
