More fun, more action, more speed, more luxury - Ischgl in the Paznauntal Valley doesn't just promise all these things but delivers on this promise 100%.
Visitors wishing to hit the slopes during the day and the dancefloor at night should head for this village in the Paznaun Valley.
But things haven’t always been this way. Until around 100 years ago Ischgl was a small farming community on the Swiss border whose residents were so poor that families could not even afford to feed their children and instead had to send them to richer areas to work in exchange for food and board. It was not until the rise of the Alps as a tourism destination that Ischgl slowly transformed itself from a remote village into a popular destination for holidaymakers.
Nevertheless, Ischgl has managed to maintain its traditional character and way of life while at the same time offering guests a heady combination of fun, action, speed, luxurious accommodation and fine dining. Couple this with excellent service and memorable events, and it is no surprise that Ischgl is the place to be in winter.
