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.

An excellent tour that really made our weekend away in Zurich special. Starting at 11am, it gave us time to explore along the Bahnhofstrasse prior to arriving at the Bus Terminal to commence the Zurich city tour. From there, we headed to Rapperwil for a walk and a spot of lunch at a beautiful little village. We then drive through the alps to Liechtenstein in constant snow all whilst being looked after by the impressive driving our the driver and a barrage of jokes and stories by Marcelo our superb tour guide.

Visiting the villages from the story Heidi and the scenery on our return to Zurich made this 7 hour tour a must do for any visitor to the city. It was made even better by the tour team and the new and clean coaches you travel in. We will absolutely do another tour with this company again on our next visit.

A really beautiful tour through some very scenic landscapes.
The english speaking guide Peter was great and really seemed to know his stuff.
The only negative thing I can think of is we only got to spend 45 minutes in Vaduz.
All in all a day trip I really recommend you take!
