The Tyrolean holiday resort is located at 1,377 metres above sea level. That means there is plenty of fresh snow each winter. Perfect to enjoy the 239 kilometres of slopes to the fullest. And in summer? The most beautiful hiking and biking trails of the Tyrolean mountains await you right outside your hotel’s doorstep.
By the way: The Silvretta Arena is the biggest connected ski resort of Tyrol and it’s amongst the most popular ski resorts in Austria!
If you spend your winter holiday in Ischgl, you can consider yourself lucky. Because it’s not only the 239 kilometres of slopes that guarantee pure winter joy: there are also lots of restaurants – from toque-awarded restaurants to picturesque mountain huts. And there are plenty of exciting activities that can be done away from the slopes: ice skating, romantic winter and snowshoe hikes and cross-country skiing on perfectly groomed trails. But if you’d rather relax during your holiday, you should visit the wellness area at your hotel or the Silvretta Center.
Whether you’re a biker, hiker or relaxation seeker: during the summer months, Ischgl enchants its guests day by day – especially because of its diversity of things to do and the town’s incredible hospitality.
