June 14 departure

Eager to connect with anyone on our trip. We will be a family of 5: me and my wife as well as two boys ages 13 and 16 and a young lady age 20. We will be in Zurich a couple of days early. My oldest son is a geography buff and would love to take a day trip to Lichtenstein. Does anyone have any suggestions about day trip options? Looking forward to a great time.

  • Hello Handy Andy! We are also on the June 14 departure for fun on the Alpine Adventure. I am bringing a friend, along with my16 year old son, Thomas (or Tommy, as I call him!) We will be coming in early too but will be hanging in Paris for a couple nights before heading to Zurich. Anyway, we look forward to meeting your family.

    We passed through Liechtenstein on our way from Davos, Switzerland to Bad Worishofen, Germany during the Ultimate Alps & Dolomites trip last year. We stopped for a few hours in the VERY SMALL city of Vaduz, the capital, where we saw their parliament building, had a short wine tasting, and had a quick drive around town before heading on to Germany. While they aren't very far apart as the crow flys, Zurich to Vaduz via train takes 3-1/2 hours, one way. Frankly, other than to say you have been there, there is not much to see and do in Liechtenstein. I would seriously consider doing something else.

    Stay later in Munich- there are a lot more things to see and do that the kids might like- visit the BMW museum, take a Segway tour of the city (my wife and I did and it was great!!!) (riders must be 15), etc., etc.

    The residence (castle?) of the Prince and royal family on a hill that overlooks Vaduz (and most of Liechtenstein):
