Ischgl

Originally a remote mountain village, Ischgl is today one of the most popular winter sports resorts not only in Tirol but in the Alps. Skiers and snowboarders can look forward to well-groomed ski pistes and state-of-the-art lifts as well as lots of highlights away from the slopes.

Until less then 100 years ago this small village close to the Swiss border lived almost exclusively from farming. Local residents were so poor that they could not even afford to look after their own children, who were sent to Germany to work in return for nothing more than food and accommodation. It was only with the growth of tourism after the Second World War that Ischgl became increasingly popular with visitors from Europe's towns and cities.

Today it is one of the most popular winter sports destinations in the Alps, though it has still managed to retain its original charm. The resort offers excellent ski slopes and state-of-the-art lifts, while away from the pistes visitors can look forward to entertainment, fine food, luxurious spas and lots of great events.

Tip! The Silvretta Card All Inclusive, which summer visitors to Ischgl will receive free of charge in their accommodation, gives holders access to a wide range of deals and discounts on activities in the region, including free use of cable cars and chairlifts, public transport, indoor and outdoor pools, etc.
