At Nils Holgersson’s World you find a Sweden in miniature and many opportunities for play and exciting escapades. Or, what do you say to an adventure trail 9 metres up among the treetops, a pedal-car track, an 18-hole minigolf course, a playground with a climbing-net, a jumping pillow and as if that wasn’t enough, a laser shooting range?
Learning while having fun Nils Holgersson’s World is situated approximately 10 km north of Vimmerby, on a level with Södra Vi. Everything is built like a Sweden in miniature on a scale of 1:3 and 1:8. The purpose is to give visitors an idea of what Sweden looked like at the end of the 19th Century. You get a sensation of sitting together with Nils Holgersson* on goose-back when he made his wonderful journey through Sweden.
In every county there are signposts indicating what animals, flowers, types of fish and other things that are particular to each county, as well as a flag with the coat of arms. There is also an exhibition where you find books, puzzles etc. relating to Nils Holgersson.
The thought behind it is that while they are here, visitors have fun and learn more about Sweden at the same time.
Adventure at a high level. The adventure trails up in the trees are very popular. The 250 metres long high trail is set 9 metres off the ground. You have to climb ropes and nets, balance along narrow bars and throw yourself down the flying fox.
Parents need not worry – all climbing is done with utmost precaution. Climbers are secured into a harness that can only be removed by the personnel at start and finish. At the shooting range visitors test their hunting skills in various games, where you might shoot at clay pigeons and wild animals appearing on a screen.
Food and lodgings
In the cafeteria you can enjoy a good lunch, have an ice-cream or enjoy some coffee and cake. Adjoining the adventure grounds, there are also cabins for hire.
