Despite its modest size, Billund offers a wide range of activities that both children and adults can enjoy. In this guide, Zleep Hotels presents some of the most child-friendly experiences that you and your family can enjoy during the summer when staying at Zleep Hotel Billund.
A 20-minute drive from Billund city is a 120 hektar zoo. Givskud Zoo opened to the public in 1969, but back then it only had lions roaming its park. Today, you can meet elephants, rhinoceros, giraffes, chimpanzees, and many more exciting and exotic animals. Furthermore, Givskud Zoo is the only zoo in Denmark that has gorillas. Apart from the many impressions the wonderful drive among the animals offer, you can also be there for the feeding of the camels, monkeys, and lions. If the kids are up for it, Givskud Zoo is also home to a giant dinosaur park, which sends its visitors millions of years back in time where it is possible to walk among lizards and dinosaurs in their natural size. The approximately 40 meter long Argentinosaurus can take the breath away from just about anybody!

If you’re looking for fun and games for both kids and adults, then Lalandia in Billund is the obvious destination. Book a small vacation in Billund and visit the gigantic holiday resort. Lalandia accommodates, among other things, the Aquadome; Scandinavia’s largest water park that any water lover will enjoy. Rush down through the new “Twister” water slide, catch the waves in the wave pool, or relax in the hot jacuzzi. Afterwards, you can visit Monky Tonky Land, which is a paradise for kids and those young at heart. The playground contains playing fields, LEGO® area, creative workshops, and of course a large playground. If mom and dad need a break, the playground also has massage chairs and a nice café. In Lalandia, there are activities for everyone, and all the splendour is just a few kilometers from Billund city and airport.
In the Fall of 2017, LEGO® is opening a completely new LEGO® House. The building is a 12,000 square meter large experience house, which has been designed by the world famous Danish architect, Bjarke Ingels. LEGO® House is an impressive sight both on the inside and the outside with its 21 huge LEGO® brick-like modules. At the heart of the building, there is a unique play area, a café, and a LEGO® store. Furthermore, there is four experience zones that invite you to theme-related activities: “Play with logic”, “Play with emotions”, “Play with others”, and “Play with creativity”. In other words, you will have plenty of opportunities to let your inner child lose and use the traditional LEGO® brick in new and experimental ways. Even without a ticket, you can visit LEGO® Square, play on the colorful terraces, and of course get your very own colorful bricks in the LEGO® Store.
No visit to Billund is complete without a trip to LEGOLAND®. LEGOLAND® Billund Resort was built right next to the original LEGO® factory, which was founded in 1949. Today, the park is the most visited tourist attraction outside of Copenhagen, and with good reason: the park evokes excitement among all LEGO® lovers with its many themed areas that are based on both classic and new LEGO® series such as Ninjago, Duplo, and Knights. The heart and nostalgic center of the park is called Miniland and exhibits a series of landscapes and sights from around the world which has been recreated with thousands of small LEGO® bricks. All in all, the park is made up of more than 25 million LEGO® bricks to build the many iconic scenes. You can spend hours on playing in the park, and most families choose to purchase a two-day pass so there is enough time to explore the many areas. A trip to LEGOLAND® on your to-do list will ensure that you have an amazing and educational experience in magical surroundings.
