Heidi Hi - Family fun by rail in Switzerland

Created: 06 February 2015

Written in 1880 by Johanna Spyri, Heidi remains a classic of children’s literature, bringing the unspoilt charms of the Swiss Alps to the Kindle generation. Step into Heidi’s world in Maienfeld – the area on which the book was based – where the Heidi Village promises visits to Heidi’s House, a Heidi Trail and a petting zoo. Enjoy it as a day trip from Chur during an eight-night holiday to Switzerland that costs from £3,050 for four (two adults, two children under 12 sharing a family room) including return Eurostar to Brussels, onward rail travel to Basel, seat reservations, Swiss Pass (unlimited travel on trains, lake steamers and buses) and B&B.
