Tourism in Ischgl - Tyrol Travel & Leisure
Welcome to Ischgl Travel & Leisure! Ischgl The tourist attractions of Ischgl concentrate several areas. Ischgl is known for lively après-ski parties and nightlife. The resort hosts pop concerts celebrating the end of the annual ski season (Top of the Mountain Concert) at the Idalp (2,300 metres or 7,500 feet). Bob Dylan, Tina Turner, Elton John, Mariah Carey, The Corrs, Thirty Seconds to Mars, Rod Stewart, Jon Bon Jovi, Nena, Sugababes, Enrique Iglesias, Pink, Anastacia, Beyoncé, Melanie C, Rihanna, Gabriella Cilmi, Leona Lewis, Kylie Minogue, Katy Perry and Alicia Keys have performed at these concerts. In April 2002 Bill Clinton gave a speech at Ischgl. Although in prior seasons it was best known as the après-ski capital of the Alps, Ischgl has a lot for serious skiers to love, too. The high altitude and number of north-facing slopes assure good snow, and its excellent lift system covers the largest ski terrain in the Eastern Alps. The Silvretta runs are perfect for intermediate skiers and offer them the chance for cross-border skiing into Switzerland, a thrill usually reserved for experts. You'll also find some long, wide cruisers in these six valleys. Experts have plenty of terrain, with challenging black trails and off-piste skiing. Boarders are especially happy here at the Ischgl Snowpark, with new rails, boxes, and obstacles. New last winter, joining the previous year's addition of the Palinkopfbahn chairlift, is the Gampenbahn, a six-person high-speed detachable chairlift with bubble domes and heated seats.
