Travel Tips for Maienfeld
Vista point Regitzerspitz
If you want to see the Rhinevalley from 600 meter above, then hike up to the Regitzerspitz.
Hike up there on a good path and enjoy the view from the top.
Behind the fence the cliff drops several hundert meters down towards the river and the wineyards.
The peak on the picture looks wild, but the path on the back side is not real steep, it is really a hiking tour, not a climb.
Don't worry, the path is safe!!!
Check also the map in the next tip.
The path is well marked with yellow signs Light hiking boots
Water and a snack

Luzisteig Swiss Army Museum
The museum shows the history of the Fortress Luzisteig and the so called "Train", the horse transport companies.
The museum is only small, but you can also walk the Fortress nearby, see my tip "Swiss Army Training Camp Luzisteig"

The museum is easy to find on the road from Maienfeld to Balzers, there are brown signpostings "Militarmuseum"
"Welcome to the home of Heidi"
Heidi is the most successful and best-known "literary" child of that famous Swiss author, Johanna Spyri. In the eleven decades since Heidi first appeared, her presence has continued to shine as a significant life force. Heidi has been translated into about 50 languages and printed in an equivalent number of millions of copies. Heidi has appeared in print, in film, and on television all over the world. She has maintained her character despite the changing tides of literary trends, the pointed pens and pencils of her critics, and even the generosity of her closest admirers.
