For centuries, "Yscla" was a virtually undeveloped settlement in the middle of the Silvretta region. And, even in the middle of the twentieth century, none of the rural community who lived there had the faintest idea that a world famous centre of tourism could develop out of their “island”. In the meantime, in the wake of the development of its Silvretta cable car service in the sixties, Ischgl has not only realised a sensational development of this former mountain farming village, but has also consistently set new standards in a modern holiday resort.
Endless holiday fun
The source of the worldwide attraction Ischgl has today lies of course in its extraordinary location. Surrounded by mighty mountains, Ischgl in winter has been utilised to its best advantage – yet also responsibly – and has gone from strength to strength to become the ultimate holiday destination for those in the know. Perhaps this is because – alongside the joys of downhill and cross-country skiing and snowboarding – there is also a cool and sophisticated après-ski experience on offer.
