Billund is a charming town which owes its fame to one of Denmark's most well-loved inventions: Lego. Visits almost always revolve around a visit to Legoland, making it one of Denmark's most popular destinations for tourists travelling with kids.
The Legoland Billund Resort is a colourful playground of innovative rides, games and Lego structures. It's even possible to spend nights in the resort's themed rooms. But the theme park is only open between mid-March and October, closing for the cold winter months from November to February.
As if vast Legoland is not enough, another popular attraction in Billund is the world-class waterpark of Lalandia Billund with its waterslides, pools and spa facilities. Located in central Denmark, Billund is serviced by the second largest airport in the country, ensuring easy access by air, and it is only 17 miles (27km) from the regional capital of Vejle.
