Looking for a low-key break from the action? Consider yourself warned: Ischgl’s slogan is, “Relax. If you can…” This is not a destination for taking it easy—not with ski slopes, cross-country trails, toboggan runs, ice skating and snowboarding competing for your attention and adrenalin. Looking for even more action? Add ice skating and snowboarding to your itinerary or plan a ride on a horse-drawn sleigh.
