Astrid Lindgren’s Apartment Open for Tours
Many childhoods were shaped by Astrid Lindgren’s famous series, Pippi Longstocking, so it isn’t a surprise that fans would want a peek into the author’s daily life. And now, thanks to The Astrid Lindgren Society, they’ll have the chance to do so.
The organization has opened the doors of Lindgren’s former apartment to tours, reports GalleyCat. Lindgren lived in the Stockholm residence up until her passing in 2002, and her family members have carefully preserved the environment so that each tourist can gain a unique perspective of the place where she breathed life into her work.
Unfortunately, those under the age of 15 will not be permitted to visit—thus barring newer fans from enjoying the tour—but it makes sense given how much work probably went into preserving the home. Tours can be booked in advance on the society’s webpage, and interested parties will be led through the apartment in groups of 12.
If you could visit one writer’s former (or current) home, who would it be?
