See the world from Gulliver's perspective in MINILAND, the centerpiece of every LEGOLAND® Park. Nationally and internationally known buildings have been rebuilt in detail on a scale of 1:20. Guests from Germany will recognize buildings from their home area. You can stroll past the Berlin Reichstag, Frankfurt's financial district or the Allianz Arena in Munich. Visitors from Italy, the Netherlands and Switzerland, too, will find buildings from their home countries. Our Italian guests will love our version of Venice. All the buildings are worth a close look, to see what's happening in and around them. LEGO® figures are working on the facades, strolling through the streets, and can be spotted hiding behind windows. The whole of MINILAND is animated, and guests - big and small - can bring the models to life by pressing buttons and turning switches.
The LEGO® Allianz Arena has a base are of 5 x 4.5 metres, is one metre high and weighs 1.5 tonnes.
The LEGOLAND® Allianz Arena was built according to the original construction plans and from one million LEGO® bricks. The illuminated exterior shell was a special challenge, as round structures are difficult to recreate with LEGO bricks on the one hand. On the other hand, it was not possible to replicate the colour-illuminated cushion covers of the stadium close to the original with any yet existing LEGO brick. Therefore, a translucent special LEGO brick was created for this project. This made it possible to light the Stadium with the help of 5,000 LEDs – almost like the original – in the colours red, blue and white.

The visitors were also involved in the building process of the LEGOLAND® Allianz Arena: Among the 30,000 LEGO miniature fans are 100 from LEGOLAND visitors creatively designed mini-fans in the lower left and right stands.
Here, park guests will be totally flabbergasted, as five of the tallest skyscrapers in the world have been reproduced using more than 400,000 LEGO® bricks on a scale of 1:150. 13 designers have worked for you for six months on the following skyscrapers: Burj Khalifa (Dubai), Ping An Finance Center (China), Shanghai Tower (China), Makkah Royal Clock Tower Hotel (Saudi Arabia), One World Trade Center (USA). The tallest building, the Burj Khalifa – which is 828 meters tall in the original version – is also a true giant in LEGO format at over five meters in height.
In addition, you can admire the Eiffel Tower and the LEGOLAND observation tower as LEGO reproductions. The latter is built to a scale of 1:150, meaning that it is only 35 cm high. Lighting and sound effects bring the High Five to life.
High, higher, the highest: Frankfurt is nicknamed ’Mainhattan‘. Anyone who sees the skyline of ’FFM‘, dominated by skyscrapers, could be forgiven for thinking they were in the USA. The towers of banks and other commercial buildings of ’Mainhattan‘ soar up to 259 m. The Trade Fair Tower with its pointed roof stands proud at 257 m and is one of the tallest office buildings in the world. With a height of four meters, the tower in MINILAND is no less impressive. It comprises of 925,000 LEGO® bricks. If model builders had kept to the usual MINILAND scale of 1:20, the Trade Fair Tower here would be 12.80 m high.

The cables located in the ground for the induction loops make it possible for cars to avoid obstacles. The ground is coated with a rubber compound so that the tires on the cars have the best grip possible.
