The Danish town of Billund is the famous home of the LEGO building bricks company and LEGOLand, which was first established in the city 50 years ago but offers so much more to visitors of any age or ability. It's a thriving city, with a lively culture and is an ideal destination for people of any age, while the surrounding Jutland towns are also well worth a visit. Active visitors will find lots of bike trails and challenging hikes around the area, while the Lalandia tropical centre offers a perfect day out no matter the weather. Flights to Billund are available from a number of UK airports and European destinations.
Billund Airport is the only airport in the city, and this popular tourist destination is well served by a number of UK and European airlines. Some of the UK airports offering flights direct to Billund include Manchester, London Stansted, Edinburgh and London Heathrow. A free shuttle bus operates from Billund Airport into town, along with a number of public bus services into town and throughout the entire region.
Ryanair offers flights from UK airports to Billund, Wizz Air, KLM, and Brussels Airlines are just some of the other popular airlines providing direct flights into the Billund Airport.
One of the main reasons for visiting Billund does tend to revolve around the LEGO theme park, so it's a very popular family visitor attraction. That said, there are lots of uniquely pretty towns in this Jutland region, and inquisitive travellers will discover plenty of beautiful places to visit, including the fjords, local markets, Givskud Zoo, and more. Although there are lots of different ways of getting to Billund, including ferry, trains, bus, or driving, flying direct to Billund is definitely the quickest travel solution and far more convenient, particularly for families and older travellers.
Billund is a fantastic destination for the entire family - grandparents as well! There is something for everybody to do in the region, even if the LEGOLand park is the kids' primary focus. One little known destination well worth exploring is the cathedral town of Ribe, and its Viking museum. Travellers to Billund can take advantage of the novel GoMore service to seek a ride for any onward journey from the airport.
