Zurich to Liechtenstein Day Trip

Zurich to Liechtenstein Day Trip

After Zurich, I wanted to make our way over to Austria and then down to Italy which was super easy by using Flixbus. We were even able to visit another country on the way by taking a Zurich to Liechtenstein day trip with Grayline Tours. This trip ended up being really nice! It was a full day of traveling to multiple stops from Zurich, Rapperswil then into the countryside over to Liechtenstein and finished after visiting Heidiland.

After first completing a city tour of Zurich we followed Lake Zurich to Rapperswil, the city of roses. We then ventured out to Heidiland which was an unexpected stop for us but was interesting nonetheless. It’s a place where families immerse themselves in the world of Heidi and Peter at the original site of the famous fictional Heidi book series released in 1881 by German female author Johanna Spyri. It’s a very beautiful area with mountains and valleys, lakes and meadows, and scenic reserves.
Next stop was the tiny country on Liechtenstein to visit the picturesque Old Town of Vaduz and its Medieval Castle. 

 

Vaduz is the capital of the tiny principality of Liechtenstein, which only has 38,000 citizens in the entire country! We had some free time here where we visited the post office to see the famous stamps from this tiny state which are coveted worldwide by philatelists and amateur stamp lovers alike.

Later we will arrive at Maienfeld, the setting for the Heidi stories. In the summer months, you can visit Heidi’s village. A short walk leads to a collection of picturesque mountain houses, a village shop, and of course lots of little goats. Entry into the authentic Heidi House is optional on the tour but we went anyways.

During winter season Heidi’s village is closed due to snow so we were lucky enough to see some of the oldest houses of Switzerland in Werdenberg.

The tour came to a close as we headed back to Zurich along the Churfirsten mountain range.
