A small ski resort village in Austria’s Paznaun Valley, Ischgl belies its small size with a wealth of action-packed winter activities, events and apres-ski entertainment. Keen skiers and snowboarders will value the town’s ski-in-ski-out possibilities with three cable cars up to the Silvretta Arena ski area, which offers various runs for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels.
Ischgl is a haven for apres-ski fun, from live music concerts to all-night clubs and cosy fine-dining restaurants. The latter includes classic Austrian cuisine at the mountaintop Panorama restaurant and authentic Japanese fare at Lucy Wang Ischgl in town. Ischgl nightlife is highlighted by the high-society Posthörndl club, Fire & Ice bar and Schloss-Lounge.

Retail therapy is found at shops scattered throughout the village, such as INTERSPORT, sport + mode and Sissis Global Fashion.
