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.

Legoland Billund has some similar themes to Legoland Germany like the Miniland, Pirateland, Ninjago, and Duplo Land, mainly because those are the must-see attractions in all Legoland parks. Legoland Billund is launching a new area in their park namely The Ferrari Build and Race, which was unfortunately still closed when we visited. 

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:

Let me share with you how it went:

Aside from the Lego House and Legoland, there are still other places you can include in your itinerary for Billund. We sure did explore Billund during the spring break vacation.
