What to do and see in Billund

The majority of tourist attractions in Billund are related to Lego. In the downtown area, you can visit Ole Kirk's House museum and discover how Lego's founder lived and the environment in which he developed the world-famous toy. From the downtown area, walking paths take you to Billund's Sculpture Park. Here you'll find a beautifully landscaped trail dotted with pieces of modern sculpture and picture-perfect picnic spots.

Billund's proximity to Legoland makes it one of Europe's top destinations for family vacations. In addition to the actual resort and vacation village, you can visit Lego House in the downtown area. This is an interactive learning experience where children and adults can explore all the creative possibilities that Lego bricks offer.

Another option is driving to Lalandia water park, located only 3 minutes away from Legoland. This is a large indoor water park and one of Denmark's most popular attractions. In addition to swimming pool-related fun, the park offers family-friendly entertainment, plus activities like ziplining, mini go-karts, or teqball. If visiting with children, make sure they save some energy for a day out at WOW Park, an amusement park located in a forested area just a short 5-minute drive south of the downtown area.

Back in the downtown area, Billund offers a variety of places to eat and drink. In the streets surrounding Lego House, you'll come across cozy restaurants, pizzerias, gastropubs, cafes and steakhouses. On the way out of town near Billund's sports field, a local brewery makes for an interesting stop as here you can learn about the ancient Danish tradition of mead-making.

There's no shopping mall in Billund since the town's stores are more boutique-oriented. A wider range of shopping options is available in the nearby town of Grindsted, which you can reach in a 15-minute drive. The nearest shopping mall is Kolding Storcenter, located 32 kilometers away from Billund.

The majority of events in this region take place during the summer months. For example, Vorbasse market is held in July in a town located a 15-minute drive from Billund. This market has a long history going back almost 300 years and started as a place where local farmers bought and sold horses back in the 18th century. Nowadays, the market has evolved into one of the biggest events of its kind in the country, where all kinds of goods are for sale. At the same time, the market offers a lively atmosphere with live music and plenty of food stalls. In addition, Legoland has a full calendar of events throughout the year, including Christmas and Halloween-themed shows.

Driving in Billund

Driving in Billund is generally straightforward, even for first-time visitors. Having said that, there are certain things that you'll need to bear in mind when driving in the Billund area.

For example, bike lanes are a common sight on many Danish roads. Bikes are used daily and not just for recreational purposes, so get in the habit of double-checking for cyclists whenever you need to turn right.

Due to extreme weather, in many parts of Denmark, winter tires are required between November and April. If you visit during the winter and book a car or van rental in Billund, it will come fitted with the appropriate winter tires.

If your rental vehicle isn't fitted with automatic dipped headlights, remember to turn them on every time you go on the roads. It's mandatory to have dipped headlights on at all times, including during the day.

National road 30 is an entry point into Billund if you're coming from Esjberg. This road bypasses Legoland but provides access to the airport before continuing north toward the eastern coast of Denmark. To reach the town of Vejle, which is the gateway to scenic drives along the Fanish fjords, you'll need to drive on national road 28 for approximately 30 minutes. Heading south from Billund, the most useful road is #425, which takes you along the peaceful plains of Jutland. There are no toll roads in the vicinity of Billund.

On these roads, speed limits range between 80 and 90 km/h and drop to 50 km/h when driving past built-up areas. In school areas within Billund, keep your speed to 30 km/h, but limits increase to 40 km/h in certain parts of the downtown area.

Some local tourist attractions (such as Lego House and Lalandia) offer free parking for 1 or 2 hours. Legoland has several parking lots, all of which are available at a fixed fee. It's also possible to pre-book parking online using the Legoland website.
