Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour from Zurich: Two Countries in One Day
From US$ 88.91
Overview
If you want to visit "Heidiland" but don’t know the best way to get there, this day trip from Zurich is the ticket. You’ll visit the village of Maienfeld, where the beloved Heidi books were set, and spend time in Zurich and Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, too. It’s the perfect way to learn the region’s history and culture while following in the footsteps of Heidi in the Swiss mountains.
What to Expect
Board your coach to start your tour of Zurich, learning about its culture and history as one of Europe’s wealthiest cities. As your guide regales you with stories, you’ll travel onward to Rapperswil, the City of Roses.

Admire the striking medieval castle and explore Rapperswil a little at your own pace. You’ll then return to the coach to continue through the Alps that frame the Ricken Pass and Toggenburg.

Cross into Liechtenstein, where the pint-sized capital of Vaduz awaits. Admire a collection of Liechtenstein’s lauded stamps and then venture further to Heidiland, aka Maienfeld. Walk to a cluster of chocolate box chalets, as you learn about the Heidi books and soak up the views; you can even visit the Heidi House at your own expense, if you wish.

Return to Zurich after Maienfeld, finishing back at the start point.

Please note: In winter, the Maienfeld visit is replaced with Werdenberg.

Boring, more on bus than ground

The tour is quite interesting, but stops are very short. Consider to spend more time in bus getting to the places. Buses, however are very comfortable. Tour guide will inform about next stop for using toilets. Even it is long way to ride, but there...More
