Austria, Austrian Tyrol
A peaceful Tyrolean oasis in the Paznaun Valley in the stunning Silvretta mountains, Ischgl came under the world’s spotlight in 2002 when Bill Clinton delivered his ‘Message from the Mountains’ speech here. Although well-known for being lively during the ski season, the atmosphere in Ischgl changes completely in the summer months where you can relax in a peaceful, low-key village which hosts a weekly brass band concert and Tyrolean evening. A great summer base for Alpine and Nordic walkers, it has access to extensive rugged trails, marvellous scenery and mighty peaks almost 3,000m high. The Silvretta Card, FREE to all Inghams guests, provides free use of the lifts and buses and is your entry ticket to the many leisure activities in Ischgl and the surrounding villages making it a great value way to explore this beautiful area.
September (16-30) is when the villages in the Tyrol celebrate the annual ‘Almabtrieb’. The festival celebrates the end of the summer when the cows are led down the mountain to their stables for the winter. Cowbells echo through the valley as hundreds of cows pass by, all highly decorated in traditional costume. You’ll be welcome to join in the festivities!
