Legoland – back to childhood!

There’s always time to remember your childhood dreams and make them happen!

Ok…maybe going to a Michael Jackson concert is out of the question, but you might still find some little hidden wishes around there.

Anything? 🙂

Having this in mind, the idea of looking for the closest Lego park seemed a bit crazy, but soooo exciting! You know that a good idea is always crazy, until it’s not :))

Said and done: plane tickets to München (we actually spent here a couple of days), train tickets  München – Günzburg, online tickets to Legoland Deutschland. Everything checked! You can easily buy train tickets and park entrance tickets on the spot, no worries. Once you arrive in Günzburg, a shuttle bus takes you from the train station to Legoland in about 15-20 minutes, and you don’t have to pay anything if you show your online reservation to the park.

Finally, getting there was a dream come true!

Facts

Did you know that the park used over 50 million lego bricks? Or that the LEGO word comes from the Danish expression “leg godt” (play well)?

Miniland

For us, the highlight of Legoland was Miniland, where major European cities and landscapes are built in lego. Simply A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!

You can actually make many of the vehicles/animals/people move by hitting a button. Star Wars fans won’t be disappointed: a large Yoda and Darth Vader are expecting you.

Just Play

Step by step, we discover the other surprises of the park and the age is simply fading away:

  • The Pirate Land – boat ride where you shoot targets using a water gun
  • Lego Factory – tour of how lego bricks are made
  • The Observation Tower – 40+ m high rotation tower with a panoramic view
  • The Kingdom of the Pharaohs – ride on a jeep and go on a laser treasure hunt

And these are only a few we remember right now.

Mix and match

Our 1-day adventure ends after 5 incredible hours of fun and genuine happiness. We couldn’t miss the Lego Factory store, where you can mix and match any lego pieces you want out of a couple of thousands (and pay at the way out, of course, for each piece).

After almost 1 hour search, we finally built a horse, a knight and his princess, and took them home.

Back to München! But that’s another story to be told… 🙂

 

Travel Tips

The park opens in April and closes in November

Online tickets are better if you want to avoid the queues, and also cheaper than at the gate; we payed 31 € each

Prices, transportation info & schedules are available on their website

  1. So kewl to see a Legoland somewhere else. We go quite often with season tickets in Florida, and I’ve been to the one in Dallas and Atlanta. The structures there have so much more character than just skyscrapers and the vegas strip, so much history. LOVE IT!
