Now that the virus is behind us, it’s time to travel, and what a time is it to be alive! If you’re visiting Copenhagen and visiting the LEGO Tivoli Store, here are a few things to look out for.

Considering that Denmark still holds on to its national currency – the Danish krone, LEGO prices are going to be expensive. Despite it being the home country of the interlocking brick, prices for sets might be even more expensive in some instances. From what we can tell, prices compared to Singapore (where we were visiting from) saw that almost all sets came at a premium but each store was well stocked with many sets you might not otherwise find in your country.

With that established, let’s go find the store!

As Tivoli Gardens takes up an entire block, the LEGO store is best accessed via the main town square, Rådhuspladsen, and walking along Vesterbrodage.

It’s nondescript and it’s easy to skip past the store if you’re not aware. But do take some time to look at the exterior to see how LEGO has made some effort to blend itself with Tivoli Garden’s aesthetic.

But it’s not the entrance we’re interested in, let’s head on inside!

As far as LEGO stores go, the Tivoli LEGO store is pretty normal with one exception we’ll get to in a bit. With two floors, all the key theme verticals can be found here.

For anyone who’s been to the New York stores, the setup here can be a tad…underwhelming.

However, heading upstairs is where the magic really happens!

Found in limited stores around the world, the LEGO Minifigure Factory is the highlight of the Tivoli store.

Packed with a multitude of options and customisations, LEGO fans will have to pick a torso, leg, headpiece and then combine it with a hat and hand accessory.

Price-wise, each custom minifig costs 89DKK (~US$12) which is a fair penny but the price is about the same as the Minifigure Factory found in Florida as well.

To start, all you need to do is head over to the cashier, and they will hand you a box to activate the machine, do check out our video for the full process –

Printing using heavy-duty industrial printers, the entire printing process takes about 10 mins. If there were more people in store, the time could increase exponentially.

There was only one person (me) in the store at the start of Spring so the staff was pretty attentive during the entire experience.

If it were during the height of summer and vacation period, the queues and wait time would be a different story altogether.

And, finally, here’s the finished product –

Depending on the season, the components rotate out a bit, so we went with the soldier’s uniform as it was unique to the store.

On the rear, we have the “I ❤️CPH” which is a print unique to the store as well. There are a few other designs, but this is the most visually appealing.

Definitely, a nice piece to have when you’re traveling to Copenhagen as a keepsake. For LEGO fans, if you’re there to shop, it might be disappointing for the Minifigure Factory makes up for the trek there!

There we have it, a quick look at the LEGO Tivoli store! If you’re fortunate to be traveling, do check out the rest of our geek travel guides as well as we experience our loves in foreign lands!
