Maienfeld Travel Guide

Maienfeld

Above this graceful little village full of fountains, vineyards, and old stucco houses, the Z├╝rich author Johanna Spyri set Heidi, the much-loved children's story of an orphan growing up with her grandfather on an isolated Alpine farm. Taken away to accompany the invalid Clara in murky Frankfurt, she languishes until returning to her mountain home. Spyri spent time in Maienfeld and was inspired by the mountains, but it's unknown whether actual people inspired her tale.
