Visit the film village

Filmbyn Småland in Mariannelund tells Astrid Lindgren’s stories the way they were in the films about That Emil, Seacrow Island and Pippi Longstocking. The classic films were part of the childhoods of many generations of Swedish children, and many will have memories of places, costumes and props that appear in them.

Sweets from Småland

Treat yourself with sweets from Småland on your trip: visit the makers and buy them fresh. Who hasn’t heard of the rock candy from Gränna or the burnt almonds from Timmernabben? And real market sweets are of course made in Mariannelund. But you may not know that fresh cream buns can be bought at Herrgårdstoppen in Strömsnäsbruk. Enjoy!

Meet the king of the forest

Småland offers a genuine moose guarantee. An estimated 30 000 moose are roaming in the forests of Småland, and if you don’t happen to see them in nature, you might just be able to see one in a moose park. In some parks you are also able to feed and pet them!
