7 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW TOURISM ASSOCIATION OFFICE

This season, the Ischgl Tourism Association has a new home. The office is fully operational for the winter season at the same address as before, but with a much lovelier and lighter interior. The renovation cost 2 million euros. But that’s not the only thing you need to know about it.

The new Tourism Association building was planned and designed by the architect Franz Wodnar from Wodnar Hotel & Spa Design.

It’s light, airy and cosy.

The large glass façade means there’s always enough light in the rooms, which have been furnished with lots of wood.

The original building, which was constructed back in 1994, is now 887 square metres (170 square metres bigger than the original size of 714 square metres). The building renovation was mostly carried out by companies from the region.

The new offices accommodate 13 departments – from information services to management.

There’s more room for the staff, with a total of 35 new workplaces set up. (The Tourism Association as a whole has created a total of 60 jobs, incidentally, throughout the region).

The square in front of the building has also been redesigned. Only natural stones have been used, and the tiles show all the stars who have performed in Ischgl to date.
