Landscapes in Legoland, Billund

I visited Legoland in Billund during the summer 2006. Here is a selection of pictures from Miniland (and two from other parts of Legoland).


Sweden

[photo]

Typical wooden Swedish houses along a canal.


Norway

[photo]

The habour in Bergen, if I remember correctly.


Market day

[photo]

Open air market. Notice the large selection of T-shirts for sale.


The North Sea

[photo]

Wind mills. One might suspect that Legoland is sponsored by Vestas.


Fishing boat

[photo]

Typical North Sea fishing boat. The ship in the background is an off-shore supply ship for an oil-rig.


Fishing harbour

[photo]

Scotish fishing village.


Roses

[photo]

Notice the flowers (roses?) growing all around the door of the house.


Sweden

[photo]

Houses along the Göta canal in Sweden.


Cattle

[photo]

Some cattle has escaped. - Or where has the fence gone?


Olsen-Banden

[photo]

The three figures walking along the pier are Olsen-Banden, some rather famous Danish criminals. The harbour is modelled on the one in Copenhagen.


Germany

[photo]

A German river or canal town.


Lock

[photo]

An advanced lock with three side reservoirs. I like the old-fashioned, open ones more, but it is quite impressive.


Canal elevators

[photo]

These two canal elevators lift river barges up and down between the two sections of the canal.


Shipyard

[photo]

On this shipyard they repair and construct traditional North Sea fishing boats.


Denmark

[photo]

[photo]

Danish fishing town.


Flamingoes

[photo]

Where I lived before, the flamingoes were actually wild and alive flying over the city. Here they are just static models. - But some very pretty ones.


Me

[photo]

That's me (on the right).
