What You Can Expect

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

Vaduz, Liechtenstein

Greet your expert guide at a central Zurich location and climb aboard an air-conditioned coach for a panoramic tour of Zurich, a city considered Switzerland’s cultural capital. Admire the rich architectural array and hear tales of Zurich’s prosperous past before travelling the Rapperswil, a charming medieval town known as the ‘City of Roses’. 

On arrival, marvel at the towering turrets of the medieval castle and then enjoy some leisurely free time to explore independently. Return to your vehicle and capture panoramic photographs of the Alps as you cross the Ricken Pass and arrive in Toggenberg, a gorgeous region replete with swooping valleys and beautiful mountain scenery. 

Next, cross the border to Vaduz, capital of the minute Principality of Liechtenstein, and spend more leisurely free time discovering the charm of the city. Visit the Post Office to catch a glimpse of its highly prized stamps and then return to the coach for the short journey to Maienfield, the stunning setting of the Heidi stories. 

Take a pleasant stroll to a collection of mountain houses and absorb incredible views of the surrounding mountains. Opt to visit the Heidi House at your own expense and then gaze at the picturesque banks of Lake Walen as you travel back to Zurich by coach. 

Please note: In wintertime, visit the quaint village of Werdenberg instead of Maienfiled.

Absolutely wonderful tour. While brief, the tour of Zurich gave you a great sense of just what a beautiful city this Swiss gem really is. Rapperswil, our first stop, was a quaint town on the shores of Lake Zurich. Skip the lunch and use the time to explore this lovely town. Traveling thru the countryside to Lichtenstein was gorgeous. As with other reviews, I wish we had more time to explore this tiny country...45 minutes was just a taste of what this beautiful little country has to offer.

I have to admit, visiting Heidiland seemed like a cheesy tourist stop, and was the least interesting item on the tour itinerary. Boy was I wrong! What a beautiful place...simply breathtaking! Take the whole Heidi thing out of the equation and I would gladly pay to visit this hamlet again. It turned out to be the trip highlight!

Our tour guide was fantastic, and the weather was lovely. Overall, this tour was a solid 5 stars and I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.

It was a nice winter, snowing throughout the day. It's for me personally, a way above expectation. We were only 4 tourist in a big Mercedes tempo bus Lucky to have lot of space and it became like a private tour . One word seriously, it was a dream tour for me and will cherish the moments through out my life. A big thumbs up to our TourGuide - a super driver and a very nice gentleman. As it was snowing, the entire valley became a snow white dreamland.


5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2016

Great pace and price. I didnt have a coat and I was worried about being outside too much. Each stop was only between 10-45 mins. You can get your passport stamped in Liechtenstein. Marcelo was hilarious and kept the group laughing with his silly jokes and stories. Excellent tour guide. Comfortable bus.
