Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour from Zurich: Two Countries in One Day
US$91.82
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 to see where Heidi was from

Peter, our guide and Armando, our driver were both pretty good, courteous and professional. Again, Hans Meier staff were really caring and cordial. Would definitely recommend choosing this company for your tours over the other company, in terms of hospitality. We actually didn't get to...More

A good tour - please make the Liechtenstein part much longer!

This tour starts at 11am from the bus parking lot next to the train station, and ends about 7pm. It actually has three components: a short 1-hour city tour that ends in Rapperswil (a beautiful little down, for lunch), a drive to Vadoz Liechtenstein (the...More

Zurich tour. Liechtenstein and Heidiland

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.
