Here you will find detailed background information about the LEGOLAND® Park and Holiday Village, our concept, attractions and partners.
LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort Park Concept: Adventure Day and Night
“Awesome awaits!” – 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 heart of the Park is MINILAND, where you can find 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.
Exciting new attractions are in store for visitors in 2016. The new MINILAND area High Five features models of five of the world’s tallest skyscrapers, built from more than 400,000 LEGO bricks. The new, 4D animated film “The LEGO Movie™ 4D A New Adventure” is shown at the LEGO Studios, and in the summer visitors can look forward to another 4D film involving the new product line LEGO Nexo Knights™.
MINILAND: Discover the World 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. Brand new are the High Five at MINILAND, where Park visitors can marvel at some of the world’s truly giant buildings. Five of the tallest skyscrapers in the world are presented here, built to a scale of 1:150 from more than 400,000 LEGO bricks.
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, almost fifteen 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. There 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 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 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 six LEGOLAND Parks are now some of the most important amusement parks in the world.
The family and children’s region around LEGOLAND® Deutschland
LEGOLAND® Deutschland Resort is THE family attraction in Bavarian Swabia – centrally located between Munich and Stuttgart as well as Augsburg and Ulm. Yet, not only the theme park and the associated holiday village are a centre of attraction.
