DENMARK DIARIES: 2 DAYS IN LEGOLAND AND LEGO HOUSE
Before visiting LEGOLAND, I would have called myself a semi-fan. I grew up playing LEGO here and there, but I was definitely more of a Barbie and American Girl type of kid. HOWEVER – after visiting LEGOLAND and LEGO House, I’ve converted to a full time, brick-building, LEGO-loving fan (who has also recently become obsessed with the show LEGO Masters)!
Over the course of 2 days in Billund, we had the best time building with LEGO bricks, riding creative and wild rides, marvelling at some truly breathtaking creations, and tapping into our inner child (didn’t have to tap far!). If you’re a fan of LEGO, I would highly recommend visiting. And if you aren’t a fan before going, you can be sure you’ll feel differently before you leave!

HOW LONG TO VISIT
We spent one full day at LEGOLAND and another at LEGO House, and this felt like the perfect amount of time to fully experience both. We were at the theme park from the time it opened (10 am) until closing time (6 pm), and were able to do all the activities and rides we wanted!
Quick tip for LEGOLAND: We got there a little before it opened, and immediately headed for the back of the park where all the big roller coasters are. There were basically no queues so we ended up being some of the first riders, and even got one entire ride to ourselves! We were super glad that we did this, since the queues for some of the rides in the afternoon can be around an hour!
WHERE TO STAY
Since LEGO is such a huge part of Billund, most of the hotels are actually LEGO-themed. We chose to stay in the LEGOLAND Holiday Village, where guests can choose from hotel rooms, cabins, or wilderness barrels (which we were crazy enough to do). They also have spots for camping, which seemed pretty popular. The hotel is located about a 10-minute walk from LEGOLAND, and 20-minutes from LEGO House.
HOW TO GET AROUND
We didn’t do much around Billund besides LEGO attractions, so we didn’t need to use much public transport. We were able to take a bus from the previous city we stayed in, Odense, and we walked everywhere else!
WHERE TO EAT
Lucky for us, LEGOLAND and LEGO House have pretty great options in terms of food. While there are plenty of options at both, but make sure you don’t miss out on the Mini Chef experience at LEGO House. You create your order by placing LEGO pieces in a certain design and once ready, the order is delivered by robots. Definitely a fun experience I’m glad we didn’t miss!
