With 239km of amazing skiing and a seriously good clubbing scene, Ischgl ski holidays are ideal for groups keen to play all day and party all night.

Ischgl is an Austrian ski resort, right on the Swiss border, and it's currently a melting pot for younger skiers after a livelier vibe. Brilliant après ski both on and off the mountains combines with ace ski runs linked by a state-of-the-art lift system. What's more, the resort is home to one of the best snowparks in Europe.

Not just a great all-round skiing destination, Ischgl is famed for its insane Top of the Mountain music festival which opens and closes every ski season. If you book your group holiday to coincide with it, expect to rub shoulders with A listers - past acts include Elton John, Bob Dylan, Jason Derulo and Kylie Mingoue. Not too shabby.

Ischgl ski resort

Ischgl ski holidays aren't all about the powder. In fact, this Austrian resort is teeming with places and things to do onces the slopes are shut.

Despite its reputation for glitzy clubs and high end hotels, Ischgl has managed to maintain its Tyrolean charm, so it looks great on the 'gram. The resort is also nicely compact - it takes you just 15 minutes to stagger from one end to the other on a night out. And if you're feeling lazy, there is an airport-style travelator that takes you from one end of the resort to the other.

Speaking of evening activities, Ischgl's party scene is legendary! There are venues to suit every kind of party animal, whether you want somewhere for a casual pint or you're keen to splash the cash on endless bottles of bubbly. Planning a bit of a wild one? It's home to the highest number of strip clubs in the Alps.

If Ischgl sounds like your ideal resort, note that it has one strict rule: between 8pm and 6am, you can't wear your ski boots or carry any equipment through the town. If you do, you could face a hefty €2000. Ouch.

Iscghl après

Ischgl has no shortage of après ski venues to get your drink on. Mingle with the beautiful people at Pacha, a slick club in the centre of the resort which'll have you believing you're in Ibiza after a few drinks.

Perhaps the resort's most raved about après spot is Kuhstall - a former cowshed turned epic party palace where they even sell their own merch. Niki's Stadl is another option in Ischgl that's buzzing after 4pm, plus they play fun German-style oompah tunes. If you like your drinks served below freezing, Fire and Ice is a huge venue complete with an ice bar and pumping dancefloor.

Schatzi Bar at the bottom of the main ski runs is perfect if you want your shots of schnapps served by dancing waitresses in traditional Tyrolean costumes. And if you can't get enough of the oompah, duck into Kitzloch near the Pardatschgrat gondola where their eclectic mix of tunes are chosen by resident DJ Boris (make sure you check out his crazy outfits, too).

Restaurants in Iscghl

The restaurant scene in Ischgl combines traditional Tyrolean cuisine with a more international and cosmopolitan offering.

Head for the pastel pink Hotel Central in the heart of Ischgl to tuck into Austrian classics at wallet-friendly prices. Restaurant Dorf-Cafe also serves up delicious regional cuisine - think sauerkraut, dumplings and pan fried potatoes. Not a fan? The restaurant additionally cooks classic comfort food like pizza and steak.

Speaking of steak, Grill Alm inside the Hotel Gramaser is a paradise for meat-lovers thanks to its succulent menu (although there's plenty for veggies to enjoy, too). Michelin starred Paznaunerstube is the place to go for fancier fare. Austrian celebrity chef Martin Sieberer runs the show and they have over 25,000 bottles of wine waiting for you to try in their cellars...

Iscghl nightlife

Ischgl's crazy nightlife scene is partly what puts it on the European ski map. As well as après venues which turn into full on raves after dark, the resort also boasts a few exclusive clubs where you can let loose in style.

Pacha, mentioned previously, at the posh Hotel Madlein is a prime spot for some crazy dancing thanks to its Ibiza-style DJ sets and eclectic decor that changes almost every season. If you want to get the champagne popping, where better to go than Champagenerhutte?! It's decked out like a traditional mountain hut, yet serves up some of the best bottles of bubbly on the planet.

Fire and Ice hosts some epic parties at the end of the ski day, plus it's split up into different areas to suit your mood and level of chill. If listening to a live band is more your thing, put ShowArena on your agenda instead.

Mountain bites

For slope-side fare, you'll have no problem finding places to satisfy your stomach in Ischgl.

Fondue lovers will want to check out cosy Berggasthof Bodenalpe in Fimbatal on the edge of the resort's ski zone. Vider Alp on Idalp is your typical Tyrolean lodge with a roaring fire and a range of comforting Austrian dishes. They often serve a special menu on toboggan nights which is worth booking a table for in advance.

At the top of the Pardatschgratbahn A2 gondola you'll find Pardorama. The building looks like a space-age ski chalet, with a well priced self-service area and epic sun terrace on the ground floor and a posher à la carte offering above. Stylish Restaurant Alpenhaus has a similar set up and their VIP Lounge features a menu of delicious local dishes. Skiing on a smaller budget? The self service area has its own charcoal grill and there are deck chairs perfect for lounging in while you digest out on the terrace.

Ischgl for non-skiers

When it comes to things to keep any non-skiers busy, Ischgl Austria doesn't disappoint. The resort's 7km toboggan run is unmissable and you'll be able to whizz down it after 7pm on Mondays and Thursdays. If you're doing it sober, watch out for any tobogganers who have come fresh from the après ski bars...

Ischgl also has opportunities to try all the classic mountain activities - think ice skating, snowshoeing and horse drawn sleigh rides. If you'd rather just chill out, make a beeline for Ischgl's Silvretta Center that's home to a pool, sauna, steam baths and bowling alley.

And let's not forget about the Top of the Mountain festival, either. Just picture raving in the snow to live tunes belted out by some of the world's most iconic singers...

Ski Holidays in Ischgl

If you're searching for the perfect place for your group to get some shut-eye between skiing and partying, Ischgl's accommodation offering is almost exclusively in hotels.

What Ischgl lacks in self-catered options, its hotels more than make up for with their easy access to the slopes. The resort isn't too spread out, meaning every accommodation option is a nice distance from the action (and by that we mean the bars). Hotels here range from basic bed and board picks through to swanky five-star options like the ski-in, ski-out Hotel Elizabeth that has its own indoor pool and steam bath. If you're worried hotels might get a bit pricey, most have rooms which can sleep up to four people.
