Lego Factory Tour

This isn’t something special and for diehard LEGO fans, it will be a dream come true. However, this tour is not something you can just turn up and do. LEGO factory tours are very unique and need to be arranged even months in advance. You also need to take into consideration that the factory experience lasts for two days. Over these two days, you will see how the little bricks and minifigs are designed and produced. You will also have an opportunity to visit the creator Ole Kirk Kristiansen’s house, where there are LEGO sets dating to the 1930s. During the tour, you will even have a chance to chat with LEGO designers who will give you the inside track on how LEGO sets are created. And last but not least, at the end of your trip, you’ll be presented with a specially-designed LEGO gift chosen by Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen (the founder’s grandson) as a keepsake! How exciting?!
