Ischgl is one of the most impressive resorts in Austria with a great reputation for its après-ski scene. Many natives would rate it as one of the best resorts, with a long season and a reliable natural snow record. The village itself is long and narrow and comprises a mixture of original and faux-Tyrolean buildings. The main street is effectively traffic-free and there’s an underground walkway from the centre of town to the Fimba gondola. There is absolutely no shortage of bars, restaurants and shops lining the pavements.
