    The Heidelberger Hütte is the ultimate biker destination in Ischgl: Hundreds of transalp bikers cycle up here every day in summer from Ischgl to then reach the Engadine via the Fimber Pass. If you want to work out, you take the steep asphalt ramp along the Fimbabach, otherwise the cable car to the middle station. From here the driveway becomes much flatter, before that it is grueling steep.
