LEGOLAND Billund Resort – Billund, Denmark

LEGOLAND Billund Resort is a 45-acre theme park located in the town of Billund, Denmark and is the crown jewel of LEGOLAND theme parks.

Opened in June 1968, LEGOLAND Billund Resort is one of the top destinations in the Kingdom of Denmark, having welcomed over 50 million guests. The park had a modest start. Godtfred Christiansen, son of founder Ole Kirk, added LEGO sculptures outside of the main Billund factory. The sculptures drew crowds of people interested in viewing the intricate objects. The seed was planted and the idea of LEGOLAND was born; Godtfred supervised the creation of additional LEGO sculptures (each object being modelled after something one might find in a village) to fill out the park’s 10-acre property. Today, the park covers 45-acres of land, boasts over 50 rides, and has inspired 8 other LEGO theme parks located around the world. LEGOLAND Billund consists of nine themed areas including Adventure Land, Pirate Land, Miniland, and Imagination Zone. Each area is filled with the LEGO shapes, colours, and characters we’ve come to know and love over the decades.

As one might expect, LEGOLAND Billund Resort is a family-friendly adventure. Guests can play, eat, and stay at the Resort, making it a destination worthy of bucket-list designation. The park is a joyful experience that encourages interaction, activity, and play.

Plan your next vacation to include a visit to a play-related store, museum, or private collection.
