Formula 1 Grosser Preis von Österreich


Thousands of spectators will flock to Spielberg in order not to miss out on the motor sports extravaganza of the year. An exciting and unforgettable weekend filled with action, emotion and highlights awaits visitors. In order to make their arrival as comfortable as possible, there are a number of options to reach Spielberg - also without using a car.


All Roads lead to

Getting to Spielberg from any direction. On the 2018 Formula 1 weekend, the approach roads to the Red Bull Ring along with most of the main transport routes in Austria are fully open. Due to the expected heavy traffic and with some road works, Projekt Spielberg recommends the following routes, depending on your departure point:

  • Vienna / East Austria: S6 –St. Michael junction – S36
  • Graz / South Styria: A9 – Gleinalmtunnel – St. Michael junction – S36
  • Salzburg: A10 – B96 – St. Michael im Lungau – Tamsweg – Murau – Judenburg
  • Upper Austria: A9 – St. Michael junction – S36
  • Carinthia: B317 – Neumarkter Sattel – Judenburg – S36 or B78 – Weißkirchen in der Steiermark (then follow local signs)
  • Schladming / Selzthal region: B320 – Liezen – B113 – Trieben (not the A9) – B114 – Triebener Tauern – Pöls – via Fohnsdorf to the Red Bull Ring (follow local signs)

Use the S36 Murtal Schnellstraße motorway and take either exit Knittelfeld West, Zeltweg Ost or Zeltweg West to get to the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg. Please follow the local traffic control system on the S36 and along the country roads. Should the traffic conditions make it impossible for you to take the above mentioned exits, please follow the instructions given to you by the executive forces. Depending on your ticket colour, you will be directed to the nearest parking area. Please memorise the number of your parking area indicated at the entrance to the respective area.

Calculate Route


  • The early bird catches the worm: Please note that you should expect extensive traffic volumes at the time of your arrival. We therefore recommend trying to arrive before 07:30.
  • The more the merrier! Whereas Daniel Ricciardo & Co. are always alone in their cockpits when they blast around the Red Bull Ring, we recommend filling every seat in your car. this will reduce traffic congestion and allow everybody to get to the event faster.
  • With the Spielberg app acting a loyal travel companion there are numerous advantages when it comes to arriving at the circuit. The app allows users to calculate their arrival route, and when you leave the circuit, the Find my Car feature will help you to find where you parked your car or motorcycle in a matter of seconds – as you want to use all your precious time at the Red Bull Ring for as many thrilling experiences as possible, after all! All the information about the app can be found here.
  • Traffic reports on Hitradio Ö3 radio station provide regular updates on the current traffic situation. The Austrian motor-way operator ASFINAG‘s free app, too, offers comprehensive information regarding traffic jams, accidents, roadworks, closed roads and rest areas.

On your bike! – Park & Bike

Fans who come from the local area and those who want to enjoy the stunning nature over the last few kilometres to the racing circuit are best advised to “get on your bike”. There are two Park & Bike car parks available close to the Red Bull Ring for those who choose to swap the steering wheel for the saddle:

Großlobming (7.3 km away, close to Schlossweg 19, 8734 Großlobming) and Weißkirchen (9.7 km away, on the B77, Judenburgerstraße 32, 8741 Weißkirchen).

Getting to the Park & Bike car parks: Großlobming via the S36 Murtal road, coming from St. Michael – take the St. Lorenzen exit. For the Weißkirchen car park, when coming from Klagenfurt, take the B78 straight to Weißkirchen or the B317 via Judenburg to Weißkirchen.
