Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour from Zurich: Two Countries in One Day

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Free Cancellation up to 24 hours in advance
Low Price GuaranteeNo Booking Fees
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.
  • Discover the hills and mountain houses from Johanna Spyri's Heidi
  • Combine a visit to Maienfeld with Rapperswil and Liechtenstein
  • Use your travel time to learn about Heidi and the Swiss Alps from a guide
  • Enjoy convenient round-trip transport from Zurich
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.

Liechtenstein is a dull capital. Heidiland is cheesy. But the scenery on the long bus ride was spectacular.

The best reason for taking this tour, in my opinion, is the amazing scenery in Switzerland. It is so beautiful. If you have young children, or if you yourself, are really into the Heidi story, you will see the original house that was used in the house in the original movie
