Zwift Route Maps: Innsbruck

Updated 5/10/2020 to improve the route data table and provide additional commentary on each route.

Zwift includes a wide variety of routes in several worlds, and this gallery provides a collection of maps for the different routes in the Innsbruck world. Innsbruck, Austria, is nestled in the Alps and played host to the 2018 UCI World Championships. If you like to climb, there are plenty of climbing opportunities here, with very little in the form of flat routes.

The following table and gallery provide more details on each route. For each map listed in the table below, we include the average grade to help you estimate the difficulty of the route. Most of the routes include a lead-in. The lead-in is the ride to the beginning of the circuit, so don't be surprised when it takes a bit longer than you thought it would to cover the expected distance.

Once you complete a route, you will get an Achievement Badge for the route and earn bonus Experience Points (XP), in addition to the XP you earn for completing the distance of the route.

2018 UCI Worlds Short Lap

Length: 14.7 miles / 23.7 km
Elevation Gain: 1620 feet / 494 m

Bonus XP (Experience Points): 470

This route starts out relatively flat, and then takes you up the long climb to Igls, before coming back down to finish out on the relatively flat portion through downtown Innsbruck.


Length: 29.5 miles / 47.4 km
Elevation Gain: 3244 feet / 989 m
Average Grade: 2.08%

The longest route in Innsbruck, you'll get to climb up to Igls twice - once from each direction.


Length: 5.5 miles / 8.8 km
Elevation Gain: 252 feet / 77 m
Average Grade: 0.87%
Bonus XP (Experience Points): 170

If you're looking for something a bit more flat in Innsbruck, this is your route. At 5.5 miles / 8.8 km, it's the shortest Innsbruck route and covers the flat circuit through downtown Innsbruck.


Length: 8.5 miles / 13.7 km
Elevation Gain: 1315 feet / 401 m
Average Grade: 2.93%
Bonus XP (Experience Points): 270

This route might catch you off guard. There is a big lead-in for this route - you start in downtown Innsbruck, climb to Igls, and then the route actually starts once you go through the banner at the top of the KOM. You'll cruise down the back side of the Igls climb and then do the KOM a second time to actually complete the route. Be ready for this one!

Lutscher CCW

Length: 8.5 miles / 13.8 km
Elevation Gain: 1315 feet / 401 m
Average Grade: 2.93%
Bonus XP (Experience Points): 240

Like the Lutscher route, this one also has a substantial lead-in that will require you to do the reverse KOM leading up to the start of the route at the KOM banner. You'll then need to make the climb a second time to complete the route. This is a hard-earned 240 XP!
