Gästgivarehagen has taken its name from the time when the town's innkeepers used the area as grazing land. Today it is used as an outdoor museum with a number of buildings that date back to the 18th and 19th centuries.
Next door is a fire department museum and Forsbergs old pottery. At Gästgivarehagen the municipality's largest grave-field from the Viking era can be found, with more than 300 graves.
Näktergalen Musem displays many of the artefacts found from the excavations that took place there.
Our hostel accommodation is open during weeks 28, 29 and 30 (8-28/9 July 2019). The hostel is centrally located in Vimmerby, about 2 km from Astrid Lindgren's World. Vimmerby Folkhögskola has about 30 rooms, all of them with their own shower and WC.
