Visiting Denmark and Lego House

BeauBricksBeauBricks The NetherlandsMember Posts: 17
It is finally the time for me, visiting Lego's home town next week!

We will be touring through Denmark as well, but the highlight will definitely be the Lego house. Are there, besides the obvious Lego House sets, any interesting sets and exclusives still for sale? I especially hope that they still have the duck set =)

I have heard that LopLet has been closed, sadly. Are there any alternatives somewhere? Would love to browse vintage and rare sets, even though it will probably be too expensive!

Thanks!

    In terms of shopping when you’re in Billund, The Lego Store in the Lego House will have all the other exclusive Direct to Consumer sets (as long as they’re not sold out), as well as the House exclusives. You’ll also want to keep hold of your Lego House polybags where you can, such as visiting the restaurant and the bricks you get on exiting the House experience. If you’re going with kids you might be able to persuade the staff to get a few extras.

    If you’re willing to go into Legoland Billund (I assume it’s open) there will be exclusives there too, but they’re exclusive to any Lego Park rather than Billund specifically, such as Legoland Castle, picture frames and miniature park layouts. You’ll want to keep an eye out for polybags there too.

    There were a few other shops that sell Lego in Billund, but i’m not sure if they’re all still in operation.

    I’m not sure what the limitations on activities are in the Lego House right now, but I have seen other people going there in the background of the Archive/History tours so hopefully you’ll still be able to do most things.

    There's a new magnet and keychain available there this year.

    Can you visit the Legoland shops without paying for access?
    If I can get multiple, I could get some key chains for other bricksetters.
    Will be in the Lego house this Tuesday (11th)

    There's also Loplet just outside the centre of town where some locals sell old Lego on consignment but it's random what there if anything - you can find it on Google and here https://loplet.dk/eng-flea-market-billund website is still up so not sure as per your comment if it's closed

    Legoland shop is inside Legoland, there is no access from outside so you need a ticket.

    Update: Loplet website (once translated) does say it's closed

    I'm not sure if it still applies but Legoland did allow free access after 4pm giving time to visit the shops and a quick visit to the park.

    It is important that you buy your tickets in advance on their website as they have only a limited number of tickets. Went last week and the new magnet is really nice and so is the duck. Also went to a couple of second hand shops in Billund but no luck on finding any Lego.

    The Lego house was absolutely amazing. Thank you @huw for the keychain and magnet tip.
    Unfortunately, I haven't checked if the Legoland park was open after 4pm.
    Due to the virus, staff is cleaning the building throughout the day and there are disinfectant pumps everywhere. I had the feeling there was less Lego to build with, but it definitely was more than enough.
    My haul is pretty sizeable, I never expected to bring so many goodies back! The second hand shops had nothing, but I went to talk with some of the locals and received some great tips.
    Thank you all for the help!
