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.

Marchello was an excellent guide, the lunch stop with a rose garden in Rapperswil, Hiediland and Liechtenstein were all worth seeing. We only spent an hour in Liechtenstein which is appropriate time to see the small country. Note: swiss souvenirs were cheaper in Liechtenstein so it's also a quick shopping stop.

This was a lovely trip! Though our day was full of hiccups, our guide and our driver gave their best! It was an unforgettable trip, inspite of getting rained on in Liechtenstein and having to UTurn a bus in a tiny road due to an unannounce road closure I know! Even in Switzerland this happens! lol, our guide stayed upbeat and funny, and our driver never lost his cool! We were in great hands!

We thoroughly enjoyed this trip, especially the Heidi Museum and the short hike to the Heidiland. What a way to start our trip!

The tour of Heidiland and Liechtenstein was perfectly relaxing and breathtaking. Walter, our tour guide for the day is sweet, funny, and very knowledgeable. The time spent in Zurich is brief, but the drive around the lake is absolutely beautiful! A perfect day. My only wish is for the tour to include the ticket for entry into the Heidi museum which is only 7 euro.

This trip was absolutely amazing. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the best but it was still great to go as the scenes were absolutely stunning despite this. Heidiland was gorgeous, getting to go inside the house and all. Plus going to Liechtenstein I got my passport stamped for 3CHF which was nice. Definitely recommend

This tour was just a delight and I loved every second of it. If you're on a budget and you want to see the Alps without paying a ton to go out to Jungfraujoch or one of the other peaks or glaciers than I doubly recommend this. They took us to a great vantage point above the city for photos before heading on. The drive out from Zurich is jaw dropping and you'll want to take photos the whole time. Rapperswil was a surprisingly beautiful little gem of a city, and if I return to this part of Switzerland I think I will stay there instead of Zurich it's so cute. If you have mobility issues the climb up to the castle is challenging but at least for me it was worth it. Liechtenstein is fascinating and beautiful, and the view of the mountains from the city centre plaza in Vaduz is astounding. Heading up to the Heidiland is as picturesque and fun as you could hope for. The Heidi museum is adorable and I spent my time there feeding the goats and admiring the scenery. Our guide was a kindly older gentleman who was very keen on making sure all of his guests were having a lovely time and being taken care of. Couldn't recommend this tour enough!

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.
