Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour from Zurich: Two Countries in One Day
From USD 88.66
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.

Good way to see the country side but not quite what I expected.

Not sure where the picture came from for the advertisement because we never saw any view like that. We did stop for a short visit in Rapperswil and saw the castle but unfortunately you can not go inside, we had time for a short visit...More

Walter was our guide, and our driver was Helvie (I am sure I have the wrong spelling) were exceptional. Helvie was a great driver driver as we felt very secure in that BIG bus and narrow roads. He never had a mis-step. Walter and Helvie...More
