No children’s story has popularised the beauty of Switzerland as much as Johanna Spyri’s ‘Heidi’. Learn more about the tale on the Heidi Trail, part of the Heididorf (Heidi Village) experience in Maienfeld. Start the 6.5km, 1.5-hour circuit at the Heidi-Shop, walking to the Heididorf and round to Heidi’s fountain. For a bigger challenge, try the uphill Heidi Adventure Trail, featuring 12 stations that explain the importance of the spot to Heidi.
Start at Heidi-Shop, Bahnhofstrasse 1, 7304 Maienfeld. Until mid-Nov. www.heididorf.ch.
