Just a train ride from Munich, Germany, in beautiful Günzburg, LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort is a budding brick-builder’s paradise. The whole park is themed around the colorful LEGO bricks, which you’ll find oversized on rides, pieced together for fantastic photo ops and assembled in models throughout the park, as well as the entire section of Miniland, which offers LEGOized reproductions of ten areas around the world + imaginary Star Wars universe. That’s 20 million LEGO bricks in that one section alone!If you’re always stepping on stray LEGOs around the house, then you already know this is a place you should go. But even if you’re little ones aren’y yet hard-core LEGO devotees, they will still have a blast because everything in the park is geared for ages 2-12. The park is the ultimate little playground, but it can get very crowded, especially during the summer months. We’ve put together these LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort Travel Guide, so that you can make the most of your day or two in the park. Now, we are talking about making the most of your time, but be prepared for your kids to find at least one place in the park they love and don’t want to leave like Adventure Land. Let them go at their own pace and enjoy the sights and attractions! Actually, we HIGHLY recommend coming back a second day. 🙂
LEGOLAND Deutschland offers a little education with their fun-filled experience at the theme park. Located in LEGO X-TREME, LEGOLAND ATLANTIS by SEA LIFE is a great place to cool off in the summer, and the kids learn a lot while enjoying amazing views in the aquarium. Also in LEGO X-Treme is the LEGO Academy, where you explore your creative side.
LEGOLAND Deutschland offers numerous shows throughout the park, and they change throughout the season. From the Castle Theatre to LEGO Arena, from Monkey Theatre to LEGO Studios, your family will be entertained. Be sure to check the show schedule when you visit the park. On busy days, you should arrive at least 15 minutes prior to show time to see a show.
LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort’s food is delicious with international options at many vendors. My family’s favorite is Schnitzel Depot. Who doesn’t German Schnitzel?! If you’re in the mood for something sweet, make a stop at Ice Cream Station for some yummy ice cream. However, you may also pack a picnic and bring your own food (we especially appreciate this with children who may not want to wait in line or desire smaller portions).
LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort Travel Guide Tips
- Bring bottled water, snacks and consider bringing a picnic.
- Set a budget. You can spend as little or as much as you like. If you bring your own camera for pictures, pack a picnic and limit souvenir purchases, you can still have a great time with rides, shows, demonstrations, etc. Plan according to your family budget and know that souvenirs and food are typical amusement park prices and plan accordingly. We purchased the Family F&B Ticket in advance, where we saved up to 30% of our delicious food and felt fortunate to enjoy the full LEGOLAND Deutschland experience.
- Measure your children before the trip and determine which rides they will be able to enjoy.
- Bring a camera.
- Dress comfortably for a day at an amusement park. Wear comfortable shoes. In the summer, plan for water rides. In the winter, plan to be outside in the cold.
- Don’t forget to put on or bring your sunscreen!
I hope this LEGOLAND Deutschland Resort Travel Guide proves to be helpful for your next trip. I highly encourage you to bring your family and friends there!
