One of the most famous book-spots in Switzerland

Last weekend my family and I went for a long dog walk starting in Bad Ragaz and ending up in the fields of Maienfeld. These names won’t mean much to most people.

But what if I told you that this is the spot where one of the best-ever selling books was written (no, not mine ;-)) and all the events in the book happened exactly here?

Any ideas?

Perhaps if I tell you that another name for this place is called Heidiland, you’ll probably know what I’m talking about.

In 1881 Swiss author Johanna Spyri published two books about one of the most famous characters in the world and her life in Swiss Alps. Her name was Heidi. This is the place where she book-lived 🙂
