Get to Crankworx Innsbruck: Parking and Transport
Plan plenty of time to get yourself to the festival venue at Bikepark Innsbruck! Traffic in and around Innsbruck has been busy of late, with extra traffic due to some construction projects around the venue. Additionally, Thursday is a national holiday in Austria.
Staying in town? Schedule and details for the Stubaitalbahn are available here: https://www.crankworx.com/innsbruck/plan-your-trip/
If you prefer to take your bike, you can rest easy knowing its safe on site thanks to the Bikmo Bike Garage, who’ll be providing a bike valet service on the festival grounds.
While we encourage you to explore alternate modes of transportation (we are a bike festival after all!!) of course we understand some may need to drive. Drivers, follow the Crankworx Innsbruck visitor parking signs from the traffic circle Mutters / Gerberbach. This will lead you directly to the best parking lot (parking ticket € 5 per day).

P.S. We’re sustainability minded and invite you to get on board! There will be no single-use plastic cups at the venue, so please bring your reusables. We’re also providing public drinking water dispensers throughout the venue to reduce plastic water bottles, so bring your own and stay hydrated all day.
