Did you know that Billund is the home of the Lego Brick?
Billund is a small town located in the heart of Denmark, but it’s known worldwide as the birthplace of Lego. The beloved toy company was founded here in 1932 by Ole Kirk Christiansen, and today, it’s home to the Lego Group’s headquarters and Legoland Billund – one of the world’s first and most iconic Legoland parks.
We drove our way to Billund from the Netherlands, which is a whooping 9-hour drive one way! Our journey started at 5:30AM and had two stops along the way, yet nothing stopped our excitement of reaching Billund. We have been to Legoland Germany, so we are definitely pumped to check out Legoland Billund.
Summer may be the best time to visit Legoland because the weather is warm, but keep in mind that most people visit during the summer holidays so it will be crowded. We planned our trip during the May vacation when the weather is a bit forgivable given that it is springtime. Here’s a glimpse of our Legoland trip:
Aside from the Legoland Billund Park, there are also places you can check out in Billund. The Lego House is an immersive museum that celebrates the creativity and innovation behind these iconic plastic bricks. Here you dive into the history of Lego and you can even build your Lego creations here! There is also an interesting restaurant called, Mini Chef, which we happily indulged in. Let me share with you how it went:
If you think we already explored everything in Billund, yes we did! Yet there are also nice places to check out that is a few minutes away from Billund like the Givskud Zoo and nice Danish town around Billund like Vejle, Kolding, and Jelling.

Whether you’re exploring the town’s Lego history or enjoying the excitement of Legoland Billund, this Danish gem promises unforgettable memories for both kids and grown-ups. So include Billund in your next school holiday plans!
