Visit Dalagatan 46!
On 14 November 2015, Astrid Lindgren’s birthday, her home at Dalagatan in Stockholm was opened as an author’s home. This is where Astrid Lindgren became a world-famous author. It was here that she formed her independent view of the world and it was here that she lay the foundations for her role as a moulder of public opinion. For Astrid Lindgren, the home was the private sphere that allowed time for reflection, silence and solitude – a place characterised by the modesty that was typical of Astrid Lindgren.
Now you have the chance to visit her home. You can book your visit here!
