Due to the current situation in connection with the Corona virus, an early season end was decided on March 14, 2020


Ischgl, 18th of March 2020

The Corona virus infections have lead to an exceptional situation across the globe, that has not been seen before. In Ischgl, and across Austria, all measures have been introduced based on official directives and are being implemented immediately. These comprehensive measures, which will ultimately be in place until the end of the winter season which has been curtailed prematurely, have been set in place in close cooperation with the relevant authorities. The health and the safety of the Tirol people, staff in the tourist operations in the state and guests from across the globe are our uppermost priority.

Right here too we always endeavour to do everything correctly. With what we know today we do have to recognise that tackling this crisis presents a huge challenge and there is no empirical global data available. In this area, the authorities have done everything humanly possible in the belief that they are acting correctly. Even the classification to 'pandemic' status by the Robert Koch Institute – which is having to be permanently upgraded – reveals just how dramatic the situation has become. Can we really do everything right in a situation like this?

We will of course review operational procedures afterwards and clarify whether matters could have been handled better, and if so, how. Right now, we all have to work to overcome this virus, become and remain healthy again and gradually, step by step, find our way back to our usual, preferred way of life.

Press release Tyrolean Government: 15.03.2020
So that this virus does not spread further and we can live as quickly as possible in the country
as we love our country. The State of Tyrol therefore imposes a traffic restriction.

All information on:

We would like to thank all of our guests, employees, hoteliers, restaurants and locals for a short but wonderful season 2019/2020.

In this new situation for the federal government, the state, but especially for all of us, we can
demonstrate our strengths in cohesion and in dealing with unusual situations. Health is our highest
. In the 14 days of quarantine, we will still have to deal with a variety of tasks. It is necessary
that we take care of each other and support each other.

Therefore, the request to reduce social contacts to an absolute minimum and not to leave your own
home if possible - this is the only way to slow down a further sudden increase in infection.
