(djd). Denmark is becoming more and popular with vacationers because the neighboring country to the north has a special charm: Endless sandy beaches, leisure opportunities for the entire family and the famous wellness concept of “Hygge.” The southern part of the country ranging from the east to the west coast is especially popular because of its diverse travel destinations for kids and adults.
Legoland Billund Resort: Discover the south of Denmark
Many family-friendly offers of Denmark’s southern region are incorporated at Legoland Billund Resort which you can reach from Hamburg by car in three hours. The leisure park with its centerpiece, the Miniland, is certainly the most famous attraction. It features an entire world made of little colored Lego bricks. The area “World’s Tallest,” presenting five of the world’s tallest buildings made from a total of 830,000 bricks was newly added this year.
– Lalandia, Scandinavia’s largest water park, is only a stone’s throw away from Legoland Billund. The newest attraction in the aqua dome is the wild water slide “Twister” with a total length of 102 meters. Water lovers are whirled around in a large funnel before they slide down into the pool at full speed.
– The new museum and adventure center Tirpitz, newly opened this summer and located about an hour west of Billund by car, offers exciting discoveries for families. During World War II, the large bunker in Tirpitz was supposed to have become part of the so-called Atlantic Wall, but was not finished. Together with the museum, that is architectonically well-integrated into the dunes of Blåvand, kids can follow the paths of the “Smugglers from Ho,” visit the “treasure chambers with huge amber discoveries,” or get to know the region “from the ice age to today.”
– Near Ribe, Denmark’s oldest town, nature lovers can discover the new “Wadden Sea Center – Gate to the UNESCO World Natural Heritage,” which opened in February. The adventure and nature centers features multi-media presentations about Denmark’s largest nature park, the Wadden Sea at southern Denmark’s North Sea coast. One focal point is the permanent exhibition “The Wadden Sea of migrant birds,” which explains this wonderful world to young and old.
And because southern Denmark is so popular, it also offers many places to stay overnight. “Holiday Village,” for example, is located directly next to Legoland Billund and was expanded by 50 new Ninjago huts and 30 new wilderness barrels.
