LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort Park Concept:
Awesome Adventures Day and Night
“Awesome awaits!” – this is the slogan for the nine theme worlds at LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort. Located in the Bavarian town of Günzburg, the park features more than 55 attractions and thousands of models assembled from more than 56 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 heart of the park is the MINILAND. You can find very detailed recreations of cities and landscapes 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.
LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort offers its guests a spectacular novelty for 2017: The completely new park area LEGO NINJAGO WORLD with its interactive 4D-ride LEGO NINJAGO The Ride, many additional adventures and LEGO models made of more than one million bricks.
MINILAND: Discover the World playfully in LEGO Format
Neuschwanstein Castle, the Reichstag in Berlin, Venice, the Hamburg harbour Switzerland, the Netherlands, and the the Burj Khalifa have one thing in common: they are all located right next to each other in MINILAND – the centrepiece of LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort. Famous German, European and international constructions are the heart of the nine adventure worlds at the Park in 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 LEGOLAND Deutschland 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, fifteen years later, no less than 56 million LEGO bricks have been assembled throughout the park. At the neighbouring LEGOLAND Holiday Village, almost another four million bricks have been used. There isn’t any predefined training or career programme to work as a LEGO model designer. What is important is imagination, manual and technical skills, along with an ability to visualise things in three dimensions.
LEGOLAND Holiday Village: Spend a night in the LEGO world
One day alone is not enough to fully explore all nine 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 136 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 eight LEGOLAND Parks are among the most important amusement parks in the world.
