By booking this interesting excursion from Zurich to Liechtenstein and Heidiland, surely you will encounter the natural beauty and cultural glory of two neighboring countries in one day – Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
You will start this full-day private trip right from any suitable location for you in Zurich. Sit back and dive into the fairy tale with extensive valleys, crystal blue lakes and untouched fields. You will have a stop at the Swiss medieval town Rapperswil, which also known as the “Town of Roses”. Over six hundred varieties of roses bloom here from June to October, turning the whole place into a dreamland. Here one can also admire the charming castle along with the Lakes Zurich and Obersee. The castle was built in the early 13th century on a rocky hilltop. It is surrounded by the present cemetery chapel and former Stadtmuseum of Rapperswil.
After exploring this pretty old town, continue the journey by crossing the border to Vaduz and travel to the capital of Liechtenstein. Here you will have spare time to discover the hidden attractiveness of the city.
The most important landmark of Vaduz is the Vaduz Castle itself, which is the palace and official residence of the Prince of the Liechtenstein. It was constructed in the 12th and underwent a major restoration in the 20th centuries. Unfortunately, it is closed to the public eyes as the princely family still lives there. The Cathedral of St. Florin, Government House and City Hall are also noteworthy sights. They are displaying the different styles and periods of architecture.
Next, we will proceed to Maienfeld, where the well-known Heidi village is located. Therefore it is also being called Heidiland. The view will transport you back to the times when the world famous children’s story was created. A short walk will unravel a collection of beautiful mountain houses, tiny shops selling local products, and of course lots of baby goats.
On the way back, you are going to make a stop at Walensee that lies between the cantons of St. Gallen and Glarus. Here you will have a calm afternoon stroll and admire the clear blue water along with the amazing mountainous view.
After the entertaining day, the friendly driver will take you back to your starting point in Zurich. For sure, this excursion will leave you relaxed and full of energy at the same time. This is a perfect opportunity to escape from your everyday life and enjoy the picturesque countryside!
