LEGO Art 31203 World Map gets two official alternate builds

The LEGO Group has published instructions for two new alternate builds for 31203 World Map, currently the largest LEGO set of all time.

That’s a record rumoured to be surpassed within the next couple of months by an enormous model of the Titanic, but for now, the 11,695-piece mosaic takes the crown for the most elements in a single set. And while 31203 World Map as standard already includes plenty of ways to use those plates and tiles, particularly around its oceans, the LEGO Group has now released two more alt builds for the colourful LEGO Art model.

The first is a nod to the company’s home country, featuring a map of Denmark set against a target-like circular backdrop, while the second recreates Europe over a chequered background. You’ll find them over on the set’s product page at, where they’re listed under an ‘inspiration gallery’. (For direct links to the PDF instructions, click here for Denmark and here for Europe.)

“Discover the impressive ways our talented designers have rebuilt their world maps,” the page reads, suggesting LEGO designers are no stranger to a busman’s holiday. (But then, would you be, if you worked for the LEGO Group?)

If either of these mosaics do more for you than the set’s standard configuration, or have just inspired you to build a map of your own country using its thousands of white, blue, green, orange and yellow pieces, 31203 World Map is available to buy now at You can read our review here to find out why it’s also worthy of a consistent spot in our Top 20 LEGO Sets List.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
