THe coat of arms of Ischgl
THe coat of arms of Ischgl is for me strange to be understood.
THis guy definitely looks like the pope , but why does he hold a "laugenbrezel" in his hand is difficult to say. a "laugenbretzel" is a bakery item with sea salt on it...
Some people have a strange taste in clothes...make sure you bring your cam everywhere with you as you'll have plenty of chances to use it...
Actually I am preparing a gallery of "the most stupid hats" make sure u check regularly...
Ischgl - the never ending party
As you exit the last tunnel , here it is - the famous resort of Ischgl spreading in front of you in the crispy alpine air.At a first look ,a village like every other in Tirol .At a second look but ,and because of its fame , it's the place where everybody comes to get drunk and party.The big disappointment for you ,guys ,is that there are about 80 % men and 20% women. So you better be good and charming, or you'll sleep alone. Skiing comes after all this.Called the "Party Ibiza of the Alps"because of the PACHA disco,Schatzi apres ski and the Trofana - the clubs for the rich and famous with its gorgeous dancing girls.
Located in the middle of the Paznaun valley, After the village of Kappl and before Galtur / that became sadly famous some years ago for the massive avalanche that buried half of the village and killed 31people/ . Ischgl's fame goes far beyond Austria's borders.It's one of the biggest ski areas of Austria. Connected with the swiss village of Samnaun that is also a Duty free Zone and a good opportunity to buy cheap alcohol ,cigarettes and perfumes.
