Denmark is the home of Lego and if you're traveling with kids in Copenhagen, it shouldn't be missed. It's located along the Stroget -- the pedestrian shopping district in the city center of Copenhagen. You can either split up with one adult takes the kids to Lego and the other can browse the other interesting shops or you can do it all together (we held the Lego store out as a carrot to keep the kids engaged and in check).
Flagship Lego stores have exclusive Lego sets that you can't find elsewhere. There are also building stations and a fascinating video monitor that will bring a set to 3-D life if you hold the box in front of the camera. They also have a huge pick-a-brick wall where you can pick up missing pieces or just get creative.

The Birth of Legos
Be a kid again in the place where Legos were created – Denmark! If you don’t have time to go to Legoland in Billund (http://www.legoland.dk/en/), then make a stop at the Lego store in Copenhagen to get in touch with your inner child.
You’ll be amazed at the number of Lego pieces that exist on the Lego wall in the back of the store. Plus, the store has special-edition Lego sets, and plenty of "play/work stations" to create your own Lego people or structures. If you don’t feel creative, then watch the store employees go to work and put together displays!
I found it fun to see how Legos have changed since I was a kid – and I even tried my hand at my own creations. A fun stop among all of the other shopping along Strøget.
