What’s New in Ischgl Winter 2022/23

Silvretta Spa: Impressive inside and out. With the new Silvretta Spa, the Silvrettaseilbahn AG is creating an architectural milestone and upgrading the leisure facilities in the entire Paznaun region. At around 75 million euros, the highest single investment by Silvrettaseilbahn AG is something to be proud of. Eight different pools with a total of over 1,000 square metres of water surface are spread over four floors in two buildings, including a 25-metre sports pool, outdoor pool, spacious adventure pool, children’s pool and a salt grotto. More than 1,500 square metres of sauna area with customs hut sauna, alpine herb sauna, event sauna, Swiss stone pine sauna and the centrepiece – the panorama sauna – are unparalleled. The spa spoils its guests with culinary delights in a trattoria with Italian delicacies, in the spa buffet and in the noble lounge with charcoal grill. In addition, a pool bar in the outdoor pool and an ice bar leave nothing to be desired. A high-end fitness studio with state-of-the-art training equipment, a physiotherapy practice with a health insurance contract, a range of health-promoting massages and an innovative cryogenic chamber ensure regeneration. Event facilities for up to 600 people are included. Highlight: the 1,300-square-metre ice-skating rink with a 250-metre-long passable tunnel, which runs once around the entire outdoor area. Good to know: The Silvretta Therme relies on alternative energy sources with geothermal energy and green electricity. More information on the new Ischgl Spa at www.silvrettatherme.at
