Mountain Bike Ride
Heidelberger Hütte

This cross-border mountain bike adventure begins in the village of Ischgl and leads through the Fimbatal Valley up to the Heidelberger Hütte (2,264 metres) on the Swiss side of the Silvretta Mountains. It measures around 14 kilometres in length and has 940 vertical metres of climbing, including a particularly steep section at the start. The reward for all that hard work comes in the form of fabulous views. Food and drink are available en route at the Berggasthof Bodenalpe. Most of the riding is on tarmac roads and well-maintained gravel trails.

Trail description

From the car park at the bottom of the Silvrettabahn cable car, this ride initially leads left into the village and then right onto the steep road into the Fimbatal Valley. High above the rushing water of the Fimbabach stream, follow mountain bike route 7074 into the valley. The first section all the way to the Schwarzwassser See and Pardatscher See lakes is relatively steep. The terrain then flattens off. The higher you climb, the more idyllic the landscape becomes. The route leads past the Berggasthof Bodenalpe (1,842 metres) – the only place serving food and drink between the start in Ischgl and the turnaround point at the Heidelberger Hütte. After a further seven kilometres of riding you will reach the Heidelberger Hütte (2,264 metres, having crossed over the border into Switzerland.
