LEGOLAND Denmark – Billund Accommodation Review
Billund is a lovely small town in central Denmark that is famous as the birthplace of LEGO. It’s not the easiest thing to work out Billund accommodation options if you haven’t been there before, so we’ve put together our recommendations for the best apartments, cabins and hotels near LEGOLAND Denmark.
With only around 6,000 residents, Billund has a surprising array of accommodation. After a long day at LEGOLAND Denmark, you can choose to spend the night at a hotel, cabin, holiday house, hostel, or even a teepee. You can also pitch a tent, enjoy a bed and breakfast or even an apartment.
Our advice is to find a place to stay near LEGOLAND and not try to day trip from Aarhus, Odense or Copenhagen.
How long to stay in Billund?
We spent two days at LEGOLAND, which was just right for us, but there were still things we didn’t get to see there. The new addition of LEGO House is certainly worth a visit for LEGO-loving kids and will take up about half a day. Plus if you need a break from all that LEGO, have some fun at Lalandia Water Park, Scandinavia’s largest waterpark. You could easily do three nights in Billund, which would give you two full days at LEGOLAND and time to see other things, but it all depends on how much time you have and what else you want to do in Denmark.
LEGOLAND Billund Accommodation Options
Lalandia Holiday Cottages Billund
Our top pick for a place to stay near LEGOLAND for families would be Lalandia Holiday Cottages. Here you get space to move, don’t have to share a room with the kids, can self-cater (which will save you money), plus there’s plenty of activities and free entry to the onsite waterpark (Scandinavia’s largest).
Even the smallest of the cottages (sleeps four) has fridge/freezer, coffee maker, electric kettle, ceramic hob, oven, microwave and dishwasher, 1 double bed, 1 cot, 2 single beds, shower cubicle and washing machine, high chair, and free parking for one car.
Lalandia Holiday Cottages Billund are within easy walking distance to LEGOLAND or you can catch the free shuttle bus. It’s also close to Billund airport if you’re flying in.
Best for: Small and large families with children all ages.
Be aware: You will need to bring your own bed linen and towels, or you can rent them from the Service Centre when you get there.
Hotel LEGOLAND Denmark
If you want the complete LEGO experience and you have money to spend, then Hotel LEGOLAND Denmark is the place to be. Turn the kids dreams into reality and spend the night in a themed room like the Ninjago Room, Knights, Adventure, and Pirate rooms.
This four-star hotel inside of LEGOLAND Billund is a treat for kids, with plenty of LEGO to entertain them in the playroom, a playground, TV room, and NINTENDO GameZone. While they’re kept busy, you can relax with a coffee or a drink at the bar.
If you’re looking for more space than your average room, try out the Junior Suite which has its own living room and one separate bedroom. Junior Suites sleep four.
Best for: Families wanting the ultimate LEGO experience that are happy to bunk in together in the one room (with the exception of the Junior Suite) for the sake of some serious memory making.
Be aware: Rooms sleep between four to six people depending on the theme you choose. Price includes accommodation, buffet breakfast, and tickets into LEGOLAND. Check to confirm details.
LEGOLAND Holiday Village
If you want the LEGO experience but your budget won’t stretch to Hotel LEGOLAND, the LEGOLAND Holiday Village Billund is a good one to look at, and it’s just over the road from LEGOLAND.
We rented three Wild West cabins at LEGOLAND Holiday Village with their own teeny-tiny bathroom and teeny-tiny kitchenette to fit the 12 of us. The kids loved it with LEGO figures everywhere, plus ducks you can feed, play equipment, plus you can hire cool tandem and quad pedal bikes to zoom around the village.
You can choose to spend the night in the new LEGO® NINJAGO® cabins, Wild West cabins, Pirate rooms, Wilderness barrels, onsite teepees, or bring your tent or campervan to the camping ground.
There is an onsite supermarket, takeaway pizza (which was good), and a restaurant (nothing too exciting).
You won’t find any luxuries here but it can be good fun if you have LEGO mad kids and you know what to expect when you get there.
Our pick: We would choose to stay in the new LEGO Ninjago Cabins, as they have a little more room to move in the living area and have a toilet and shower in the cabin.
Best for: Smaller families with children aged 10 and under who want to be next door to LEGOLAND and have the LEGO experience.
Be aware: Beds in the cabins are not designed for tall people, so anyone over about 6ft may not have the best nights sleep. The beds have walls at top and bottom, so there’s no hanging your feet over the end of the bed. Also be aware you won’t be spreading out your luggage or yourselves. They really are small cabins.
Many of the cabins share a toilet and shower block (which makes it cheaper), so check your reservation carefully to make sure you’ve got what you want.
You will need to bring your own bed linen and towels, or rent them when you get there. You have to then put them on and pull them off yourself.
Lillevang Apartments Billund
If you’re after one of the best-rated apartments in Billund for families, then take a look at Lillevang Apartments. Only five minutes drive from LEGOLAND, these clean and modern apartments have full kitchen facilities (meaning you can save money by cooking), TV, WiFi, and LEGO bricks to play with.
There’s plenty of space to relax outside on the terrace or in the garden, which is a great place to unwind after a day of crowds.
Best for: Families looking for a relaxing place to stay, where you can cater for yourselves.
Be aware: The second bed is a sofa bed. It is a good idea to have a car to get here.
Hotel Propellen Billund
If a hotel in Billund is what you’re after then you can’t go past Hotel Propellen which is a mere 500 metres from LEGOLAND. Sit back and relax after a day at LEGOLAND with three dining options including a great kids menu. There’s also an indoor swimming pool, exercise room, plus indoor and outdoor playgrounds to keep the kids happy.
