Located in southern Denmark, this city is most famously known for being the home of Legoland. The LEGO factory is also located just outside the city. While the theme park makes Billund the ideal location for a family holiday, it also has plenty of other charms. This modern city is surrounded by picturesque villages, whereas the city itself is home to a great many historic sites. The town has plenty in store for those who want to learn of its fascinating history and absorb the rich culture here. There are lots of great museums, historical buildings and impressive art galleries in the city centre as well as a range of natural historical sites, such as the Torskind Gravel Pit, which is now home to several expressive sculptures.
A typical four-door saloon would be perfect for travelling with all the family, with plenty of space in the back and boot for the kids and their entire luggage.
