The "Disneyland of Denmark," Legoland, an amusement park less than a kilometer (1/2 mile) north of the small Central Jutland town of Billund, is the second-most-visited tourist attraction in the country, after Tivoli in Copenhagen. Since it opened in 1968, some 28 million visitors from around the world have arrived. It can be a lot of fun if you're traveling as a family. Adults exploring Denmark without children in tow might want to seek other diversions (unless, of course, they are hard-core Lego aficionados).
