Heidiland and Liechtenstein Tour from Zurich: Two Countries in One Day

1,000 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.

It's not everyday that you visit the police department of a big city, but this small and free detour into Zurich's one is worth the effort. Giacometti's murals are beautiful and modern to this day. Very nice. 10 minutes are sufficient and the palace is very central, no excuse.

I grew up in Zurich and never knew this gem existed, after 28 years abroad, I just discovered it. Housed in an active police station, this work of art is well worth a visit. It's a small entrance hall, you will have to deposit a photo ID to enter, are not allowed to take pictures and get 10 minutes to spend inside. It's absolutely beautiful, so when you walk from Bahnhofstrasse to old town, stop

Today, this site close to the main station forms the entrance to a police station. You can visit it for 10 min and if you leave your passport. It has very colourful paintings at the walls and ceilings mad by Augusto Giacometti in the 1920’). You can also experience his art in several of the churches of Zurich.

Despite our efforts to research hours, when we came to the building at 2:30, it was closed. I really wanted to see this because I was incredibly impressed with Giacometti's stain glass window work at 3 area churches. I hate that I missed it. I will say the exterior of the old orphanage/convent was impressive.

This is a quick stop but worth it. Inside the Police station. Only open to the public between 9 - 11 am and 2-4 pm. The police are rude and cannot get rid of you quick enough but do it so beautiful. Seriously, the police need to change their attitude towards tourists, I was not the only one to be affronted.
