Have you guessed it yet? The word our illustrator Ernst is describing in this picture is …
By day, Ischgl is the best ski area in the Alps. But at night, it changes its appearance and becomes, like the whole of Paznaun, a magical place. Trisanna was bewitched.
Date: 3 February, 1929. Location of event: Gasthaus Sonne, Ischgl. Number of people in attendance: 25. Purpose of the meeting: Foundation of the tourist office. To put it simply, this was the day when organised tourism began in Paznaun.
For a long time, bicycles and snow have gone together as badly as hot chocolate and sunsets. But since the arrival of the fat bike, you can go out on the mountain on two wheels even in winter – mostly downhill, though.
When Ischgl is full of hustle and bustle, there’s a place where Ischgl locals go to meet each other. It’s new, discreet and very special. What’s this lovely surprise all about?
This is a brochure summing up the tourist highlights of the Paznaun region in a very special way. It’s the first piece of advertising to be printed in colour – and was created in 1955.
A look back to the times when the lifts were slower and the lift attendants still had a very special responsibility.
So you have to carry your skis from the car park or the hotel to the ski lift, of course. But how do you do it? Trisanna has investigated thoroughly. And drawn conclusions. Which type are you? Hopefully, number five!
The Kappl ski region is a real insider’s tip. Ten lifts, 42 kilometres of slopes, more than 90% of which above 1 800m. A photographic taster from Philipp Horak.
You really don’t have to. These special Paznaun dialect words which probably sound so strange to your ears were used to make sure no one could understand them – a sort of secrete language.
Today is Shrove Tuesday. Today’s the day when the whole world does fancy dress. And once again, Ischgl is ahead of its time. Because people get dressed up here the whole season long. Why? We don’t really know. But we’ve taken supporting photos of the Ischgl Alpine zoo this year just for good measure. Leilei, hurrah, or something along those lines!
