LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort Park Concept: Adventure Day and Night
“Play your part!” – this is the slogan for the eight theme worlds at LEGOLAND Deutschland. Located in the Bavarian town of Günzburg, the Park features more than 50 attractions and thousands of models assembled from more than 55 million LEGO bricks, offering a unique experience for families with kids aged two to twelve, along with various accommodation options. The Resort is a paradise for young treasurehunters, pirates, explorers, knights and brave roller-coaster riders. The Park also has live shows and a fantastic 4D cinema, which will literally give you the goose bumps. The heart of the Park is MINILAND, where you can find European cities and landscapes reconstructed in detail at a scale of 1:20, along with famous STAR WARS™ scenes at the LEGO STAR WARS Model Display. Guests can learn about the building material of LEGOLAND at the LEGO Factory, which displays the LEGO brick production from granules to the finished product
MINILAND: Discover Europe playfully in LEGO format
Neuschwanstein Castle, the Reichstag in Berlin, Venice, Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the Hamburg harbour have one thing in common: they are all located right next to each other in MINILAND – the centrepiece of LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort. Famous German and European constructions built to a scale of 1:20 are at the heart of the eight adventure worlds at the Park in the Bavarian town of Günzburg, and the LEGO STAR WARS™ MINILAND Model Display even offers guests glimpses of far-off worlds and galaxies. More than 25 million ordinary LEGO bricks were assembled by model designers to construct this part of the Park.
Model construction: a dream career as a LEGO model designer
Before the Park opened its gates in 2002, 140 model designers in the Danish town of Billund (headquarters of the LEGO Company) were hard at work for three years planning, building and finally transporting the new models to Günzburg. Today, more than ten years later, no less than 55 million LEGO bricks have been assembled throughout the Park. At the neighbouring LEGOLAND Holiday Village, almost another four million bricks have been used. You don’t have to be an architect or engineer to work as a LEGO model designer, nor is there any predefined training or career programme that leads to this goal. What is important is imagination, manual and technical skills, along with an ability to visualise things in three dimensions, in order to be able to build LEGO models which are true-to-life copies of the original structures.
LEGOLAND Holiday Village: Spend a night in the LEGO world
One day alone is not enough to fully explore all eight adventure worlds at LEGOLAND Deutschland. That is why the family amusement park has expanded its amenities and developed into a short trip destination. In 2008, the Holiday Village was built next to the Park, which has been steadily expanded and now has 72 cottages, a campground and a splendid castle complex with 102 LEGO themed rooms. Along with these accommodation options, LEGOLAND Holiday Village also has a lake with a sandy beach, a bowling-center, a high-ropes course and a minigolf course, and many other entertaining things to do.
LEGOLAND and Merlin Entertainments
In 1968, Godtfred Kirk Christiansen opened the first LEGOLAND Park at the LEGO Group’s headquarters in the Danish town of Billund. His idea was a complete success. Consequently, in the 1990s the company decided to offer this idea in other countries as well. The plans worked out well: the six LEGOLAND Parks are now some of the most important amusement parks in the world.
