Parish churches

Recollect your thoughts and experience moments of true peace and reflection, when visiting the beautiful parish churches of our valley: parish church St. Sebastian in See, parish church St. Jerome in Langesthei, parish church St. Anthony in Kappl, parish church St. Nicholas in Ischgl, parish church St. Sebastian in Mathon and parish church St. Mary’s nativity in Galtür.

Ancestors of the inhabitants

Read in the chronicle how Ischgl has become the popular and famous paradise for winter sports as we know it today. The farmer’s museum in Mathon gives you genuine impressions of the harsh life farmers had to face in the past. There is another museum dedicated to a well-known painter of this region: Mathias Schmid. In Ischgl there is also a cultural hiking trail, which was created in honor of this artist. His pictures portray the life of farmers in the mountains.
