SUNDAY, JULY 05, 2020
IRONMAN Austria takes place in Carinthia, Klagenfurt and the area around Lake Woerthersee. The countryside is beautiful and the course is fast, yet challenging. IRONMAN Austria offers 40 qualifying slots for the 2020 IRONMAN World Championship in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii.

We have reservations at the Gretl Hotel just 2.5km from the race start, outside of Klagenfurt, which makes for a quieter and more relaxing stay.

EST's Ground Package to IRONMAN Austria includes:

  • Accommodation (includes all applicable taxes)
  • Round Trip Airport Transfers from the Klagenfurt Airport (KLU) to the Hotel
  • Round Trip Transfer from the Klagenfurt Train Station to the Hotel
  • Daily Local Transportation Provided by EST (rental cars not necessary)
  • Transportation to All Race Functions
  • Daily Buffet Breakfast
  • EST Hosts / Hostesses to Assist You
  • Exclusive EST Bike Mechanics in The Hotel
  • 2-CO2 Cartridges for Race Day
  • Guided Course Tours Daily (Sunday Through Thursday Pre Race)
  • Optional Day Trips in and Around Klagenfurt The Week Before and After the Race

Extra service available:

> Bike Assemble & Pack $100

Included in the package is the services of a professional mechanic but we ask that you unpack your bike and loosely assemble which means putting the wheels on, hand tighten the pedals, and bars. The mechanic will then tighten everything and make all necessary adjustments to the gears/brakes. If you prefer to just hand your bike case to the mechanic upon arrival he will unpack and completely assemble your bike and then after the race the mechanic will disassemble and pack your bike for your departure.

Please look through the site completely and then fill in the "REQUEST EVENT INFORMATION" form (RED BOX - this is just a request form and does not obligate you to travel with us) and we will contact you to discuss your trip and answer your questions. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call or email us directly.

Endurance Sports Travel has arranged accommodation at the Hotel Gretl for your convenience.

Air Travel

For this race we do a ground only package so please feel free to go online and arrange a flight that is best for you with regards to dates, flight itinerary and price. All of our transfers are from either the Klagenfurt Airport (KLU) or the Klagenfurt train station. If you are planning to arrive on or before the Monday the week of the race then flying into Klagenfurt would mostly be fine. Later then this there is a good chance your bike will not arrive on the same flight as you since they only put a few bikes on each flight. If you are arriving later I suggest flying into Vienna or Venice and taking the train to Klagenfurt. If you are traveling around after the race to areas south of Austria such as Italy, Slovenia or other Adriatic countries then flying from Venice may be best. If you are going to travel into Eastern Europe, throughout Austria or into Germany then flying into Vienna would be best.


You will not need a car in Klagenfurt the week of the race as we provide the airport or train transfers as well as course tours and local transportation daily.

We are happy to provide anyone looking for a rental car with a discount code.  This will help you in your rental and should be able to save you some money!  Endurance Sports Travel has teamed up with Budget rental company to provide you with a discount for any auto rental.
