The city's name is derived from two words: “bi” (“bee” - it reminds the English version of the word) and “lund” (“grove”). In 1916, the future founder of the LEGO bought a carpenter's shop and Billund lumberyard, and began his construction business. However, after the global crisis of the 1930s he changed the type of activity for the production of miniature toys. Initially, they were made of the remaining wooden pieces of his other products - ironing boards, ladders, etc. In 1968 Legoland - a children's theme park, built from LEGO - was opened in Billund.
The main attraction of the park is the old street of Copenhagen.
