Legoland (Nordmarksvej 9, Billund) – this theme park is a 2 ½-hour drive from Copenhagen (via route E20), but since it’s run by one of the most popular toymakers in the planet (Lego) , families still come here regardless.  Launched in 1968, and located next to the original Lego factory, over 50 million visitors have come to Legoland.  The park is a celebration of the innovative ways that Lego blocks have been used over the years – making replicas of sights from all over the world (from a Scandinavian fishing village, to the Statue of Liberty, the Acropolis of Athens, and even Star Wars).  Admission:  355 DKK per person (free for children under 3 years old).  Opening hours vary.  Check Legoland’s website for an updated schedule:
