Billund is a small town in south-central Denmark. However, it gets a lot of tourism due to the presence of an international airport and the Legoland Resort. If you are trying to figure out where to stay in Billund, we will take you through the best options here.
Many visitors stay in Billund for just one or two days. Regardless of whether you are coming for a short or a long visit, it is still important to find a comfortable place to stay.
Due to the small size of the town, we will not look into specific neighborhood descriptions like we do in other city guides. Rather, we will recommend the best hotels situated near the most important sites in Billund.
Hotel near Legoland in Billund
LEGOLAND Castle Hotel – Book here
This hotel is designed like a large Lego castle. It is situated just a quick walk away from the main entrance to the Legoland Resort and about 800 meters away from the Lalandia Resort. You can stay at the Legoland Castle Hotel regardless of whether you are visiting Legoland or not.
There are three different types of rooms: Princess, Wizard, and Dragon Knight. Every single room at the hotel has a specific Lego theme, and so do the common areas. On top of staying in a cool and well decorated room, guests will also have access to indoor playgrounds, internet, free parking, and a restaurant. A breakfast buffet is served every morning. The reception is open 24/7 and the check-in and check-out hours are quite flexible.
The Legoland Castle Hotel is the perfect choice for families and for Lego fans of all ages. If you want a magical experience while you are staying in Billund, and if you don’t want the adventure to end when you leave the theme park, this is the hotel to choose!
Side note: An alternative to the Castle Hotel is the regular Legoland Hotel. It is still a fun and well-located hotel, and it is a bit cheaper, but not quite as fancy. The normal Legoland Hotel is a great choice if the Castle Hotel is fully booked. Make a reservation here.
