The best way to experience Billund is by first visiting Legoland, the theme park responsible for the town’s growth. The 45-acre park is divided into nine areas, including Pirate Land, Adventure Land, and the Imagination Zone. Mini World is a particularly popular park, where visitors can explore recreations of monuments such as The Statue of Liberty, the Acropolis, and Egyptian Temples in 1:20 scale. Next, explore the Lego House, a 12,000-square metre building that’s home to towering Lego dinosaurs, make-your-own Lego movies, and other exciting activities. Don’t miss the chance to dine at the futuristic Mini Chef, where Lego Robots serve your meal.
Want to get outdoors? Billund is home to Givskud Zoo, a 120-hectare wildlife park filled with playgrounds, dinosaurs, and over 60 species of animals. Drive the classic safari route in your car and watch zebras and lions cross the road in front of you. Kids can also take part in activities such as campfire bread baking and digging in the sand for ecological treasures. If it’s a leisurely walk that you’re craving, take a stroll through Sculpture Park; the grassy trail passes by 19 pieces of modern art, and it makes the perfect place for an afternoon picnic.
No holiday to Billund is complete without a visit to Lalandia, a tropical waterpark filled with waterslides, wave pools, and hot jacuzzis.
