Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour from Zurich: Two Countries in One Day
US$ 88.39
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.

Informative tour around Zurich, with some stops to take photos.Beautiful countryside on the way to tiny Lichtenstein and time, to get some souvenirs.And even if you don`t know Heidi story, you still gonna enjoy Heidiland.

Just Ok

As a day trip out of Zurich this showed us some countryside, mountains, lakes, rivers. Liechtenstein was a brief visit to some tourist shops, Heidiland just a fairly long walk from the bus to see the house used in the Heidi movie. Pleasant bur uninspiring.

If your goal is Heidiland best to take a car on your own

My daughter was dreaming of Headland and it was absolutely more amazing than I could imagine. However, what they DON'T tell you is that you only spend the LAST 30 minutes there and they stop at two other stops which are tourist traps just to...More

We were on a day tour. There was room in the bus and the bus was locked and the driver near by when we left the bus. Suggest you contact the bus company and check.
