The 81st Tour de Suisse will end to the north of the Rhine. As the final Hub Schaffhausen will host the 8th and 9th stages and provide numerous attractions for families, cycling fans and hobby cyclists from Switzerland and around the world.


The Tour de Suisse returns to Schaffhausen six year since its last visit to the City at the Rhine Falls. As the final Hub, Schaffhausen will be all about cycling for one whole weekend (17/18 June 2017).


"We are very pleased that the Tour de Suisse 2017 will be putting its final weekend on the roads of Schaffhausen», said Cantonal Councillor and Sports Minister Christian Amsler. "The Canton of Schaffhausen wants to show itself as a sports loving, liveable region on the Rhine, with a high quality of life for families in a natural environment and within close proximity to the economic area of Zurich."


The start-finish area will be located at the newly opened football stadium LIPO Park Schaffhausen. City Mayor Peter Neukomm is proud that the City will once again be an important part of the Tour de Suisse, following on from its participation in 2011.


"Thanks to the great flexibility and cooperation between the authorities of the Canton and the City, it was possible for Schaffhausen to become a host city," Neukomm explains. "Schaffhausen, with the unique historical backdrop of the Munot Fortress, will do its best to provide an unforgettable cycling experience."


The return to Schaffhausen also stirs positive emotions for the General Director of the Tour de Suisse, Olivier Senn.


"My first assignment as coordinator of the start village was in Schaffhausen. I remember the excitement of the many enthusiastic spectators."
