Ischgl

The perfect place to relax, e.g. after a day on the slopes of the famous Silvretta Arena, is the Adventure Pool Silvretta Center.

Altitude: 1,377 m a.s.l.

Ischgl is located in the Paznaun Valley and is surrounded by the majestic peaks of the Silvretta Alps, the Samnaun Alps and the Verwall Alps. The Rhaetians, who settled down in this area about 1,000 years ago, gave the mountain village the name "Yscla" or "Ischia", which means "island".

The Mathon Farm Museum provides an insight into those times. It can perfectly be combined with a hike starting from the valley station of the Silvretta Cable Car in Ischgl, and leading on the theme trail of Mathias Schmid, a local artist, who focuses on mountain farmers, to Mathon. The little hamlet awaits you with the museum as well as the Silvretta Wildlife Park along the Silvretta Road.

Ischgl serves also as the background for several events, including sports events such as the Ischgl Ironbike in summer, a mountain bike race in three levels of difficulty, and the "Top of the Mountain Concerts", held as opening event of the skiiing season in November, at the end of April, and on Easter. Celebs like Elton John provide an international flair to the alpine village...
