Kids who visit Denmark are in luck as one of the world's most beloved toy companies, Lego, got its start in the city of Billund, Denmark. That region of the country has since developed into a worldwide Mecca for Lego Enthusiasts.
Those interested in visiting Legoland can fly directly into Billund or drive a short distance from nearby Copenhagen. If they choose the air route, they won't have to worry about renting a car as the airport is literally located next to the park.
Everything in Legoland is built out of the toy blocks, and travelers can walk past full reconstructions of famous areas, like London's Trafalgar Square. They'll also have the chance to try out several Lego-themed rides, like the Power Builder, which incorporates the company's philosophy of creation by allowing kids to program their own ride.
Dedicated fans might want to consider booking their trip around one of the company's "Inside Tours." In late May and early June, Lego runs a number of select weekend tours that give travelers a peek at the inner workings of the company. Travelers will get to learn all about the history of the company, meet with Lego designers and receive a unique Lego gift.
Travelers can even stay at the Hotel Legoland, right by the park. Don't worry - its made of approved construction materials rather than Legos.
