Ischgl, Tyrol, Austria. View of Ischgl. In March 2020, Ischgl was a focus of the coronavirus pandemic in Europe. Since then, the public prosecutor's office in Innsbruck has been investigating whether events in the holiday resort could have led to the spread of the epidemic throughout Europe and whether there is reason to suspect that there is a “risk of contagious diseases”. Ischgl is a municipality in Tyrol with 1617 inhabitants (status 2019). The municipality is located in the judicial district of Landeck on the Swiss border. Located at almost 1400 meters in the Paznaun, the place is known for its Silvretta Arena ski area with 238 km of slopes and 45 lifts, which is connected to the Swiss Samnaun. The former mountain farming village was transformed in the 20th century into a hotel settlement that serves mass tourism. During the ski season, numerous après-ski parties and concerts by various international pop stars take place there. © 2020 Armin Smailovic / Agentur Focus
