“Achterbahn” is German for rollercoaster, but this challenging route is a lot more work than any rollercoaster you’ve ever taken. Covering all Innsbruck roads in both directions, this figure 8 route is almost 20km longer than Watopia’s Figure 8, with 4x the elevation gain!

This is the longest route in Innsbruck. It begins at the start/finish line, but takes you over the steep reverse KOM first, then over the forward KOM before ending at the start/finish. Along the way you’ll hit the sprint next to the Inn river in both directions.

I just completed the Achterbahn/Innesbruck ride, but didn’t receive a badge
or the XP points for completing it. At the age of 66, this is a difficult ride and I’d like credit for it.

A lot of the rides or courses start just before or after the start and finish lines. I did one last week where I crossed the line but to complete the route, I had to ride and extra 4km. It is annoying but if you ride a route, you need to keep going until you awarded that route on screen

I’m riding it right now and am at 32.9 miles heading up the KOM again. Zwift insider is very wrong

As all of you I did this route about two weeks ago and ended up with 53.6KM and 1631M and dis not received de route badge, it’s discouraging to say the least. This route is one of six I have left to do on Zwift, I was going to try tomorrow again but reading this comments I change my mind.

Also just tried to complete this route. Zwift froze for about 60 secs two thirds of the way through…. then asked if I wanted to return to the ride, said yes. Was sceptical and yes after having gone up and down and then up a third time….. 50km and 1250m ascent.. I gave up. Will try again in a weeks time as that was 2 1/2 hours without completing this damned course!!!!! 57 year old hear so I hear you dod and clear OP.

I rode this today. I never saw the finishing banner on the screen, nor did I see the +950 XP that I was really excited to see and normally see at the top of my screen where +XPs are normally showno. I did go into “Badges” within the Zwift application after mile 30 because I was getting suspicious I wouldn’t get the badge, but I did get the virtual badge for completing Achterbahn. But I will say after that route which was the most elevation I’ve climbed in a single ride on Zwift, I was looking forward to all the… Read more »

I don’t think you get a bonus of 950 XP for completing the route. You just collect 950 XP along the way – 20 XP for every kilometer, as usual.

The first time you complete any route you get an XP bonus along with the badge. As with most things Zwift, there’s an Insider article on it. For Achterbahn the bonus is 950 XP.

What would be the best bike when racing this course? (Points race for KOMs and sprints)

Finished this today, 48.3k and 990m climbing. Preferred this to Alpe de Zwift, because it is broken up into 2 climbs, yet is longer.Didn’t improve on my hill climb time, but it was a privilege just to complete, with a little gas left in the tank Pleasantly surprised.
