Stops along the way from Billund to Stockholm by car

We're visiting Billund, Copenhagen, and Sweden by car in Late July. We're flying into Copenhagen and picking up the car there. We'll then spend a few days in Copenhagen and drive to Billund for a few days (we have a young child).

Here's were I need the most help. We don't want to spend more than 4 hours in the car at one time. From Billund, I was thinking of spending the night in Lund to see the Kulturen. Then keep driving towards Stockholm. I think we'll need to stop for the night somewhere in between. I had wanted to go to Kalmar, but Kalmar to Stockholm is too far for us to tackle in one day.

Where else would be a good stopping point for the night between Lund and Stockholm--considering we have a young child?

Another note, we'll be stopping in Jönköping on the way back from Sweden to Gedser to pick up the ferry to Germany. I'm not opposed to stopping in Lund on the way back. Or skipping Lund altogether if the consensus is the Kulturen isn't worth the stop.

THANK YOU!

How long is the trip? Have you considered getting rid of the car and taking the train instead? That sounds like the easiest way to solve your problem.

I don't know what you're actually trying to do, but driving from Billund to Stockholm via Lund is a major detour.

It's not the route I would choose if I was planning to drive from Billund to Stockholm. I would opt for Billund-Grenå-Halmstad-Stockholm. A bit slower on paper, but you get a break on the way and you don't have to deal with the heavy traffic around Öresund.

Thank you! Is Lund and the Kulturen worth a stop? Maybe I should push us to go Billund to Kalmar, Kalmar to Stockholm and then swing by Lund on the way back to Copenhagen from Jönköping? I had seen Vimmerby and was curious too. We have 6 days to be back in Copenhagen after we leave Billund.

Lund is worth a stop, but so are many other places.

I still don't understand what your plan is and what you're actually trying to do. It's hard to give advice without more information about your trip. And again, if you're just going between towns and cities, it's much easier by train.
