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.

I went with my family to Liechtenstein for a day trip. I really wanted to go there for a long time especially to the Postal Museum. And so I’ve managed to go. The Museum is not far from the bus station, the building is centrally located. The building is not only the postal museum but has all an Art exhibition space. It doesn’t cost anything to visit the museum (free admission). The exhibition on one floor and is very interesting for philatelists. At the entrance is the museum shop you can buy yearly stamp collections starting from 1940 but the price can be high. You can even buy rare stamps that cost about 1800 or even higher. There are other Philatelic items like FDC,Year Album etc. The exhibition started with the model of the post carriage showing the route it taken and different lights plus trumpets. Next to that you can sit on a stool and check on a big screen all the stamps that Liechtenstein issued, history of the post office, history about stamps and knowledge etc. Afterwards there is a corridor on the one side the different subjects issued by Liechtenstein on the other side there were pull out glass display boards where all the stamps of Liechtenstein and subjects like sport, royal family etc. A other main subject of the museum was space travel of the Russian and Chinese. Mostly FDC signed by the astronauts and a lot of information. To my mind the museum was very interesting and fascinating ,,I loved it!! Worth a trip for philatelist and who are interested in stamps.

I would have NEVER thought of visiting a stamp museum but decided to give this one a shot and wow, I'm so glad that I did! I learned a lot, especially from a special temporary exhibit they have on Mexican stamps. By far my favorite thing about this museum was the staff, especially Csilla. They were so friendly and helpful! I really enjoyed meeting them. Bonus: With the Liechtenstein Adventure Pass, you get free entrance to the Postal Museum and the Treasury Museum, and you get a free bookmark. :-)

The Postal Museum houses all kinds of paraphernalia related to Liechtenstein's expansive and interesting stamping history, including stamp kits, stamps galore, a block puzzle of stamps that you can put together, and more. It's small, it's free, the staff members are nice, and you can get your passport stamped (w/ a somewhat rare Liechtenstamp stamp) for 3 euro. It's easy to access as well, as it's in the Main Square, right next to the Visitor Center, and close to paid street parking (or free parking for up to an hour outside the Cathedral of St. Florin a few minutes' walk away).
