A visit to the Heidelberger Hütte
|Ski trip to "Heidelberger Hütte"|
|Far away from the busy ski slopes lies the Fimba Valley and at its end the Heidelberg Hut (2264 a.s.l.). Located on Swiss soil (municipality of Valsot) but managed from Austria (Ischgl) and belonging to the German Alpine Club (Heidelberg section).
In the deafening silence of the snowy winter landscape you are destined to find peace and tranquillity, enjoy the beauty of the mountains and recharge your batteries.
A trip to the Heidelberger Hütte is worthwhile in every respect: first, the aerial tramway built in 2013 takes you up to the Piz Val Gronda (2812 m.a.s.l.). There you will be greeted by an impressive mountain panorama with numerous 3000-meter peaks. This is followed by a freeride or firn descent to the Heidelberger Hut, which receives the "Extraklasse" seal of approval. The variants are varied and only slightly difficult.
As an alternative to the downhill run through the terrain, you can also order the "Skidoo Taxi". The skidoo pulls you from the valley station of the Gampenbahn to the Heidelberger Hütte.
In the rustic restaurant or on the sun terrace you can enjoy a fine lunch from the local kitchen and maybe even a sweet temptation for dessert. Time passes by much too quickly and soon you'll be heading back to the ski area through the Fimba Valley.
