Do you have a LEGO lover in your your family? Then a visit to LEGO House in Billund, Denmark must be on your bucket list! Imagine an entire building filled with 25 million LEGO bricks available to build with in all different ways. Are you drooling yet? LEGO House is easily combined with a getaway to LEGOLAND Billund or Lalandia waterpark.
LEGO House in Billund, Denmark
LEGO welcomes you as soon as you enter LEGO House – LEGO artwork on the walls, full-size LEGO people on the benches, and the beautiful Tree of Creativity. When we were at LEGO House there was even a working full-size car built entirely from TECHNIC bricks and motors!
LEGO Wristband and LEGO House App
Your LEGO House wristband is your personalized record keeper of all your LEGO House memories. Scan your ticket at the machines in the lobby to get your personalized wristband. For 29 days after your visit you can download the photos and videos from the LEGO House app or website.
Keep your codes! In order to recover your memories in the LEGO House app, you will need two of three codes: wristband, 6 bricks, or ticket code. Take pictures of two of them in case you accidentally toss your wristbands or tickets.
LEGO House is divided into six Experience Zones. The majority of your time will be spent in the four colored Experience Zones – Green, Red, Blue, and Yellow. You will also want to spend time in the Masterpiece Gallery and perhaps the History Collection. Our kids just wanted to see modern LEGO, the history didn’t interest them, but your mileage may vary.
DUPLO builders welcome! If your kids haven’t graduated to LEGO bricks, never fear. Every zone has a dedicated DUPLO building area.
The zones can be visited in any order you like and you’re always welcome to loop back. We started at the top in the Masterpiece Gallery and worked our way down.
Red: Develop your Creative Skills
Bring your creativity to the Red Zone. There’s enough LEGO (and DUPLO) here for any idea! The Creative Lab area has a different challenge each month.
Blue: Develop your cognitive skills
Save minifigures trapped in the arctic ice by programming your arctic explorer robot; build a LEGO car and test drive your design on a variety of tracks; play city architect and design a city that satisfies your picky minifgure residents. Watch out! City Architect is addictive…so addicitve that we were too busy pleasing our demanding minifigure citizens to take photos. Oops!
Green: Develop your social skills
My favorite zone…although it’s a tough call with Blue Zone. I could have spent all day, or maybe several, gushing over the details in the World Explorer. I may need to become a professional LEGO builder. Or just visit LEGO House more often!
Our favorite family activity was the stop motion animation “Story Lab.” You do have a time limit, but your movie saves and you can come back for multiple sessions if you need to. It took us three sessions to finish our movie. If you have done stop motion before, you would probably be faster.
Yellow: Develop Your Emotional Skills
In the Yellow Zone, you can build a fish to release into a computerized aquarium, design a flower, and build critters of different types. For younger builders, the DUPLO zone features blocks with all different facial expressions.
Need a brain…or finger…break? LEGO House has several small, outdoor playgrounds. You can pop outside whenever your legs need a stretch.
Personalized Brick Factory
Finish your visit with a personalized 6-brick combo and be amazed by the endless possibilities of LEGO. Did you know that 6 2×4 LEGO bricks can be combined in 915,103,765 unique ways? Cross my heart. Danish mathematician Søren Eilers proved it in 2004.
Yes, never fear, if you need any more LEGO bricks, books, or paraphernalia in your life, they are all available at LEGO House. You can even take a photo of yourself and have it made into a personalized LEGO art kit.
Eating at LEGO House – MINI CHEF Restaurant
LEGO House has three eateries, but hands down you need to eat at MINI CHEF! Not only is the experience unique, but the food is tasty and healthy. You start by ordering your food with LEGO bricks (of course!). Then use the video screen at your table for a behind the scenes peek at the LEGO minifigures preparing your food in the kitchen. Lastly, pick-up your food in a LEGO-shaped box from the robot helpers.
How Long do I Need to Visit LEGO House?
How long you need to visit LEGO House depends slightly on your LEGO-thusiasm. We easily spent six hours here, including lunch, and probably could have gone longer. The LEGO House website says 3-4 hours for the Experience Zones.
Your entry ticket has an assigned time when you can enter the Experience Zones. We bought tickets for the first entry time, which meant the crowds were smaller. Once you’re in, you’re in; therefore, expect the crowds to grow during the day.
How to Buy Tickets to LEGO House
We highly recommend buying your tickets ahead of time. You will have a timed entry for the Experience Zones. If you’re planning to visit LEGOLAND while in Billund, a combined ticket will save you money. Your visit date/time to LEGOHouse will be fixed, but you can use the single day LEGOLAND ticket 6 days before or after.
Where to Stay near LEGO House?
Our favorite place to stay in Billund is Lalandia! Lalandia has a huge indoor waterpark with slides and water play areas for all ages. We love spending our evenings there after a day at LEGOLAND or LEGO House, which both close much earlier. Both LEGOLAND and LEGO House are an easy walk (10-15 minutes). The accommodation at Lalandia is holiday cottages, which means you can also cook and do laundry. Winner!
The LEGOLAND hotels are obviously another popular place to stay in Billund, especially if you’re looking for the all-LEGO-all-the-time holiday feel. LEGOLAND has a lot of choices depending on your budget and proximity to the park. The two “on-site” hotels are Hotel LEGOLAND and LEGOLAND Castle Hotel (the newest option). LEGOLAND Holiday Village has the Pirate’s Inn Motel and holiday cottages themed as Wild West, Ninjago, or Wilderness Barrels (barrel’s have a shared bathroom).
LEGO House is located in Billund, Denmark. LEGO House is located in downtown Billund near LEGO headquarters and is a short walk from most hotels, including LEGOLand and Lalandia.
The closest airport is Billund (BLL) with direct flights from more than 50 destinations in Europe. From Billund airport you can catch a taxi or the local bus to LEGOLand, Lalandia, or downtown Billund.
The nearest train station is Vejle, where you can catch direct trains to Copenhagen and Aarhus (or elsewhere in Denmark) and international destinations such as Germany and France. Rejseplanen.dk is the best tool for planning a trip on Danish public transportation. The public bus between Vejle and LEGOLAND/Lalandia takes ~40 minutes.
