The last tour of this year’s famed LEGO Inside Tour has been finally concluded, and with it comes the exciting reveal of this year’s exclusive set that will leave its mark in the annals of LEGO history. Being a unique LEGO experience on its own held at the company’s headquarters in Billund, Denmark, the 2-day LEGO Inside Tour allows guests – 140 in all, divided into four groups – to see for themselves how LEGO bricks are made, to chat with top notch set designers, and to have an exclusive tour of the Ole Kirk Kristiansen’s original house and relive the humble beginnings of the most valued toy company in the world. You’ll also be delighted to know that LEGO managed to preserve their previous sets that they keep in their astounding vault.
Here’s what TLG has to say about the LEGO Inside Tour.
What is LEGO Inside Tour?
LEGO Inside Tour provides a unique look into the LEGO Group often referred to as ‘a once–in-a-lifetime experience’. You are invited inside Ole Kirk Kristiansen’s original house, featuring an extraordinary exhibition of LEGO sets and models that date back to 1934. You will meet LEGO employees and especially LEGO designers, who will introduce you to their daily work at the LEGO Group, and you will take part in a unique building experience together with LEGO designers. Part of the LEGO Inside Tour consists of a factory tour, where you can see how LEGO bricks are produced. LEGO Inside Tour also stops at the LEGO staff shop.
At the end of the tour, you will receive a unique gift exclusively produced in close cooperation with Kjeld Kirk Kristiansen especially for this year’s LEGO Inside Tour participants.
The LEGO Group’s headquarters are based in Billund, Denmark, and here the LEGO Inside Tour will take place. Starting point of the 2-day tour is Hotel LEGOLAND®
