A DAY IN THE CAPITAL OF CHILDREN
Billund made its mark on the world map in 1949 when Ole Kirk Christiansen invented the LEGO® brick. ‘LEGO’ is a portmanteau of ‘LEG GODT’ (i.e. ‘PLAY WELL’), a mantra that lives on in the LEGO® House and LEGOLAND®.
More than 1,000 years ago, Denmark was ruled by Viking kings Gorm the Old, and later Harald Bluetooth. Come and explore their mighty fortress. Experience the world of the Vikings with all your senses – touch, feel and get a scare in the award-winning exhibition. Explore Harald’s secret writings and solve the exciting challenges. Or, jump back in time to the old royal castle, Koldinghus. Follow in the footsteps of Danish kings and queens and experience the castle the way it was a hundred years ago. The castle is full of riddles. Can you solve them?
Did you know that Harald Bluetooth’s fortress was surrounded by a 1.440 meter long palisade? Within the fenced area there was room for 20 football fields.
If it’s raining cats and dogs, then join the fun. The Heart of Jutland offers plenty of opportunities on rainy days. Can you solve the riddle in the exciting escape room? Or would you prefer bouncing like crazy in an indoor trampoline park? There is also Billund, hometown of the LEGO® brick. Here, you will find LEGO® House – aka the Home of the Brick – where you can play with 25 million LEGO® bricks. Or how about a game of bowling, visiting a museum, a creative workshop, or solving a detective challenge at the science centre, Økolariet?
Did you know that Økolariet in Vejle is a unique science centre where you can learn about sustainability and the impact of humankind on tomorrow’s world?
