In Günzburg, Legoland opened in May 2002 on an area of 140 hectares.
When creating Legoland in Germany, 56 million real LEGO parts were used. They were used in the construction of rides and other attractions, in the construction of Miniland and for the creation of numerous characters and park characters. Visiting Legoland is designed for children from 2 years old, but adults here also “fall into childhood” and enjoy taking part in all the entertainment offered.

Rides and attractions.
The LEGOLAND area is divided into several themed zones, with 55 different rides and attractions, all built from 56 million LEGO parts.
Lego City is home to one of the most popular attractions for children – Hyundai LEGOLAND driving school. Children from 3 to 6 years old are provided with a single pedal speed control car, and children from 7 to 13 years old are given a real driving course in a small car. Before the test, young drivers are shown a colorful video course or given instructions in their native language. After the briefing, it’s time to drive on a busy highway with traffic lights, road signs, a car wash and little fellow students. The result of the exam is getting a “real” driver’s license.
There is also a factory where you can make your own minifigure from the constructor, a mind-boggling ride Flying NINJAGO 22 meters high, the Airport carousel, cruise port, playground “shipyard” and other attractions. And in the real LEGO factory, after watching the production of details you can get one of them as a keepsake.
The central part of the area is a 50-meter high observation tower overlooking the entire amusement park. The cabin, in which children and their parents sit in comfortable seats, swirls around the base of the tower and rises up toward the amazing views of the park, the resort village, and the forest around them.
One of Legoland’s Pedal-A-Car roller coasters wraps around the police station, Kids Power Tower and LEGO Arena, where events and shows are often held, and a large dragon pours water on people passing by. There’s a DUPLO soft-surface playground for the little ones, and for those interested, there’s an interesting gallery of soccer stars.
One of the most extreme Project X slides is located in this part of the park. In addition to exciting rides, it is also a virtual reality ride, where you can participate in a real race in the middle of the Lego world, wearing virtual reality glasses. Other exciting attractions include a carousel on the water with the ability to shoot water, fast rotating techno cups, a room with computer games and a 4D movie theater. On one side of the water carousel you can play musical instruments, and on the other side you can enter Lego Academy to build your own unique Lego model.
In addition to extreme attractions in the area there is a real relax zone – an aquarium with a tunnel of 8 meters long, where more than 2000 different fish, including sharks and stingrays are swimming. Among the living inhabitants of the aquarium you can also see cute figures made of LEGO cubes.
Kingdom of Knights
The Kingdom of Knights also boasts an exciting slide that you have to ride right on the back of a fiery dragon. For those who are afraid of the big slide, there is a smaller Dragon Hunt slide. In addition to slides, you can ride the Caterpillar carousel or lego horses in medieval ammunition, and try to pan for gold in a small mine.
The Adventure Zone is home to a veritable jungle, among which the biggest adventure will be a trip to the top of the Jungle X-pedition volcano. From the top of the volcano, visitors slide down a water slide that is 12 meters high. Other water activities include swimming in a small canoe.
Younger travelers can take a safari tour in a small jeep through the jungle, where, among the greenery and ponds, there are about 90 life-sized lego animals. There’s also an Adventure Playground for kids with lots of climbing, scrambling and rolling equipment.
Near the safari park and Miniland, the theater is open to the public and has exciting shows. See the official website for a program of events.
Pirate’s Land, Pharaoh’s Kingdom and Ninja World
Land of Pirates covers an area of about 5000 square meters. Once there, you are likely to take part in a real sea battle. The weapons in the battle are water pistols and machine guns, and the opponents are the other visitors. Be careful, because to take part in the battle and not to get wet, you can not. You can take part in a battle for the treasure in the land of the pharaohs in the temple of X-pedition, where the weapons for visitors will be infrared guns. Besides this, it is also possible to take part in a virtual battle in a new area of Legoland – the ninja world. This amazing world includes a 4D attraction that will fight the Great Eater! Effects of the exciting entertainment include light, fog and heat.
The centerpiece of Legoland is Miniland, the park of miniatures. It is around the park that the railroad runs, on which you can look at all the areas around Miniland in cute wagons, so that you don’t miss the most interesting things when walking among the rides and entertainment.
Most of the architectural and cultural attractions found in Miniland are represented in a 1:20 ratio to their actual size. This little world impresses not only with its authenticity, but also with the life that boils in its mini streets, mini rivers and mini houses. Little people walk the streets and go about their business behind the windows of small buildings, cars drive through the streets, boats float in the water, windmills spin. Visitors, by the way, can contribute to the greater vitality of the little worlds by pushing special switches.
Several German cities with beautiful and unique attractions are represented in Miniland. One of these is, of course, Berlin . Among the miniatures in this area are the central square of the capital Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburg Gate, Unter den Linden Boulevard, the Berlin Cathedral, the historic quarter of Nicolausfirtel, the Red City Hall made of red bricks, Museum Island, the Reichstag, the Berlin Zoo and the Victory Column.
Germany’s fifth-largest city Frankfurt is represented by miniatures of German Manhattan with its skyscrapers, the old Römer Town Hall and the beautiful Alt-Sachsenhausen district on the banks of the Main. The administrative center of Bavaria, Munich, is represented by a chic replica of the modern soccer stadium Allianz Arena that resembles a flying saucer with a shimmering roof. The mini stadium holds 30 million mini fans in the space around it, 100 of which were made by visitors to Legoland.
Among other German attractions, the port of Hamburg, the largest in Germany and the 9th largest in the world, stands out. A miniature replica of the Port of Hamburg contains 146,000 liters of water. Neuschwanstein castle of King Ludwig II of Bavaria out of 300,000 LEGO parts is one of the most beautiful exhibits. The composition of the castle and miniature copies of the alpine mountains Sehuling and Tegelberg weighs more than 300 kilograms. Visitors also like the charming Swabian village with its quaint houses and farms.
In addition to the local landmarks of the country there are copies of important and beautiful places in other countries. There is romantic Venice with its bell tower, the Doge’s Palace, the Bridge of Sighs, the treasury of St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, St. Mark’s Basilica in Piazza San Marco, Rialto Bridge and gondolas. The Swiss city of Lucerne on the shore of the lake of the same name and Amsterdam, the capital of the Netherlands, with its windmills and tulips attract attention. A special place is occupied by the zone of skyscrapers, consisting of 5 world’s tallest buildings: Burj Khalifa (Dubai), International Financial Center Pinan (China), Shanghai Tower (China), Royal Tower (Saudi Arabia), Freedom Tower (USA). The highest buildings in the world are copied at a scale of 1:150. Next to them stands a miniature Eiffel Tower, 35 centimeters high.
Miniland has not only copies of real buildings, but also part of the cinematic world. More than 1.5 million LEGO bricks on 140 square meters were used to recreate the world of George Lucas’ Star Wars. In addition to the star characters and sets from the film, the big space destroyer “Finalizer” 5 meters high, recreated from 350,000,000 parts of the constructor, stands out.
