Following the tremendous public response and a high media presence over the past two years the City of Bern will once again host a stage finish in the Tour de Suisse 2017 and the start of the stage the next day.

 

Bern will be the cycling capital once more on Monday evening, 12 June 2017. As hosts of the final weekend of the Tour de Suisse last year, and a stage finish and a stage start of the Tour de France this year, Bern has proven its ability to organise great cycling festivals. With this latest decision the City continues its engagement in cycling.

 

Not without reason: in 1938, Bern was the start and finish point of the Tour de Suisse. Of the cycling stronghold cities, Bern is ranked 3rd with 23 events, after Zurich (45) and Lugano (27).

 

 

The third stage starts on Monday morning, 12 June 2017, in Menziken (AG) and is expected to be a sprinter’s stage. The finish takes place in the middle of the city of Bern with the exact location to be announced in due time. After passing through the finish line for the first time the riders will complete a lap through the surrounding region before the sprint to the finish. The next day the bunch will head from Bern towards Villars-sur-Ollon (VD).

 

"For me, the capital city and the Tour de Suisse belong together," stresses General Director Olivier Senn, "that is why I am particularly pleased that we are able to visit Bern again."

 

Unlike the two previous years, traffic disruptions and restrictions will be kept to a minimum.

 

For its part, the city of Bern is committed to continuity.

 

"Bern was able to score points in all marketing evaluations thanks to its cycling activities", explains the municipal councillor Reto Nause. "We made great progress in positive perception and international recognition. We want to build on that."

 

In addition, with more than one thousand overnight stays directly related to the Tour de Suisse, the benefits for the city and the region are remarkable. "The Tour de Suisse offers added value."

 

The remaining hub for the final weekend of the Tour de Suisse 2017 will be announced in the next few days.
