Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour from Zurich: Two Countries in One Day
994 reviews
If you want to visit "Heidiland" but don’t know the best way to get there, this day trip from Zurich is the ticket. You’ll visit the village of Maienfeld, where the beloved Heidi books were set, and spend time in Zurich and Vaduz, the capital of Liechtenstein, too. It’s the perfect way to learn the region’s history and culture while following in the footsteps of Heidi in the Swiss mountains.

I went to this escape room last Saturday with a couple friends and had an awesome time. The entire group was very engaged in solving the puzzles. Would definitely return for another session some time soon!

No story about the escape room was presented until we asked to explain a bit the story behind the game; some tasks were solved by previous participants and remained in the room; the hints were provided when we did not ask; stuff entered into the room during the game

We were a group of 5 people and played the game "container". The puzzles were pretty difficult and time was running. We had great fun and the price of 119.- for 5 people is the best in the city! Many thanks to the host for the hints. :)

We were a party of 2 who had played the "Casino" room. I have done over 15 different escape room companies, and I felt this was near the bottom. We made it through the room in 45ish minutes and 95% of the entire game was centered around one book shelf that was about 8-10 feet

Response from Dominik F, Manager at The Escape Gmbh

Dear Kandrewl2 I am sorry to read that our casino game was not to your liking. Obviously you are very experienced when it comes to escape rooms and may not have seen the challenge as tough as most of our other customers do. I assume that is the reason why you are not content and have solved the game rather quickly (only very few groups finish our casino room in 45 minutes or less, so cudos on that). The assessment that our room is centered 95% around a book shelf does not seem completely fair, though. Granted, the majority of locks is on that shelf you mentioned but 95% of the riddles actually need to be solved elsewhere and the shelf only gives you the clues and help for the next riddle in the room. Regarding our pricing policy. It is true, that we are not the cheapest escape room in the region for couples as we have group prices are rather than per person prices. For groups larger than two people we are actually the most competitively priced escape room in the city. This is exactly to motivate groups to bring along a friend because it won't get more expensive if they do. When taking into account that this way we actually lose money on every group larger than two people (95% of all groups at our location) we feel that it is unfair to say that we are only money-focused. The group that you are referring to in your review actually missed their appointment and asked for their money back after they noticed. We just didn't give in to their attempt to blackmail us into giving them their money back to prevent a bad review. I would love it if you gave our games another chance. Our prison game may be slightly more challenging to you (especially if you decide to play as a couple again) and the container has a wonderful special effect and is also multi-room, as per your preference. I look forward to welcoming you again at our location in Zürich. Cheers, the escape
