Legoland Germany

Enjoy a great family day out at Legoland Germany. Located about an hour and a half from Munich near the city of Ulm, Legoland (Germany) is a great place for both adults and children.

Whilst it is basically a theme park with the usual rollercoaster–type rides, the added bonus are the fascinating models of animals, buildings, cars and people, all made from thousands of Lego bricks. In fact, 50 million Lego blocks were used to create the park! 

With rides for all ages, a hands-on centre where the kids can build their own masterpieces, an amazing Lego ‘miniland’ featuring replicas of many of Europe’s famous buildings in 1:20 scale, spectacular shows, shops and cafes, Legoland is a great day out for the whole family. 

My boys – aged 13 and 10 at the time – absolutely loved it!

Situated right next door to the park, Hotel Legoland Holiday Village is the perfect place to stay.

Legoland Parks are also located at Windsor in the UK and at Billund in Denmark.

Getting to Legoland Deutschland

Legoland Deutschland (Germany) is located at Gunzburg in Bavaria, 90 minutes drive from both Munich and Stuttgart. We drove from Lindau on Lake Constance which is also around 90 minutes away.

Visitors arriving into Gunzburg by train can catch a shuttle bus to Legoland from the station. Shuttles operate every 15 minutes in high season.
