About Ischgl

Surrounded by the beautiful Silvretta and Verwall mountains, Ischgl is home to just 1,600 people, but packs a real punch when it comes to adrenaline-fuelled activities in both the summer and the winter months. A hugely popular place to visit, Ischgl offers a wide range of accommodation options, including simple Alpine chalets and grand hotels with impressive facilities. Big or small, the best places to stay in Ischgl promise enchanting mountain views and access to myriad adventurous sports fit for the whole family.

Come during the summer months for hiking or running trails criss-crossed around the verdant landscape, and pristine views of an enchanting part of the Paznaun. Head out horse riding with the whole family or take to the skies to experience paragliding or zipping through the air on the Ischgl SkyFly. There’s motorcycling and mountain biking to try, too, and outdoor tennis courts in town, as well as fishing and mini-golf. Kids will adore the Vider Truja adventure park, or clambering up the wood-and-rope construction at Lake Pardatschersee, where you can rustle up a laid-back barbecue in splendid surroundings.

It’s in the winter, though, that Ischgl really comes into its own. Considered the gateway to the Silvretta Arena, Ischgl is one of Austria’s hippest ski resorts, with 239 kilometres of slopes. Beginners will find brilliant ski schools, equipment hire and plenty of blue (easy) and red (moderately difficult) runs to hone their skills and feed their desire for adventure, whilst experienced skiiers will find lots to their liking, too. Boasting super-slick cable cars and lifts, a huge variety of slopes — including the classic Smuggler’s Circuit, which leads all the way to Switzerland — off-piste delights and snow from November to May, this is a winter wonderland for active couples, groups or families.

Beyond the slopes, there’s cross-country skiing, tobogganing, ice skating and winter hiking. Spend your days making the most of the area’s natural wonders before treating yourself to revitalising spa treatments at your hotel and tantalising Tyrolean fare in Ischgl’s excellent gourmet eateries. Whether you’re on the hunt for a romantic escape or a fun-filled family holiday, the best places to stay in Ischgl have it all — and more.
