Tour de Suisse 2023 route
The eight-day stage race in Switzerland features two time trials and over 18,000 metres of climbing
Stage 8: St. Gallen - Abtwil (ITT) 25.7km
The 86th edition of the Tour de Suisse, June , begins in central Switzerland before heading westward to Fribourg, Vaud and Valais regions. The Queen Stage, on the fifth day features the Alpine crossings of Furka, Oberalp and Albula.
The route will then move eastward to the Thurgau and St. Gallen regions for the two final stages, ending the eight-day race with a time trial. The race divvies out plenty of climbing – more than 18,000 metres over 1097 kilometres in eight days.
Stage 1: Einsiedeln - Einsiedeln (ITT) 12.7km
This year's opener is an individual time trial in the monastery village of Einsiedeln on June 11, 2023. Though not considered a classic prologue at 12.7km long, stage 1 is expected to be a fast time trial with small time gaps for the contenders.
Stage 2: Beromünster - Nottwil, 173.7km
Stage 2 heads to the Mittelland for a hilly 174km circuit between Beromünster and Nottwil. However, as is often the case in Switzerland, sprinter stage or not, the terrain is not completely flat. In addition to speed, riders must overcome a total of 1,890 metres in altitude before they can fight for the stage win.
Stage 3: Tafers - Villars-sur-Ollon, 143.8km
Stage 3 with 2677 metres of climbing, the first stage in the French-speaking region of Switzerland, will provide the first mountain finish of the Tour de Suisse 2023. After the start in Tafers, the category 1 Col des Mosses is the first major obstacle of the day. The final climb to Villars-sur-Ollon is that the real test comes at the end of the 144km stage.
Stage 4: Monthey - Leukerbad, 152.5km
After more than 70 years the Tour de Suisse returns to Monthey for stage 4, which starts off with a 24 kilometre loop. Though the first 80 kilometres is completely flat, this stage will by no means be a rest day. The first challenge will take place on the ascent to Crans-Montana, a category 1 climb, 96km into the stage. The route follows more roller coaster terrain until the mountain finish in Leukerbad. The peloton will climb 1,500 metres of altitude on the 152.5km stage.
Stage 5: Fiesch - La Punt, 211km
The Queen Stage on June 15, 2023, has 4,700 metres of altitude difference spread over 211 kilometres. With the Alpine passes of Furka (the highest peak of this year’s Tour de Suisse), Oberalp and Albula, this will be an extremely tough stage. Shortly after the start in Fiesch, the peloton will begin climbing the hors categorie Furkapass (2,429m), with the summit coming 38.7km after the drop of the flag. The climb of the category 1 Oberalp Pass follows quickly. The third and final climb of the day, the hors categorie ascent of Albula Pass (2312m), crests with only 10 kilometres left in stage 5. The last kilometres will also require honed descent skills on the way to the finish in La Punt.
Stage 6: La Punt - Oberwil-Lieli, 215.3km
Stage 6 at 215km, is the longest of this year’s Tour de Suisse. From the start in La Punt, the riders have to master the Albula Pass from the opposite direction to the previous day. A series of flat sections precede a steady up-and-down course for the last 50 kilometres or so. The last 2.4 kilometres to the finish are uphill to the finish in Oberwil-Lieli.
Stage 7: Tübach - Weinfelden, 162.7km
The concluding weekend of this year's men's tour will start with a classic stage from Tübach to Weinfelden. Starting off with a flat start loop along Lake Constance, the 160km long stage 7 passes through the hilly Appenzell region. The terrain gets hillier with short and punchy climbs at the course enter the half-cantons of Appenzell Inner- Ausserrhoden before flattening out slightly on the way to the finish. This penultimate stage could provide a final opportunity for the sprinters to steal the limelight.
Stage 8, on June 18, is the 25.7km individual time trial from St. Gallen to Abtwil with 415 metres of climbing.

Une étape à Villars-sur-Ollon en 2023
Après une annulation en 2020 et l'absence de programme d'animation l'an dernier, la boucle helvétique a retrouvé son rythme de croisière, même si le Covid-19 est demeuré très présent jeudi et vendredi. Malgré une réussite populaire, le Tour de Suisse s'inscrit également dans les chiffres rouges cette année.
Les bénéfices devraient revenir à lors de l'édition 2023 après un développement encourageant des candidatures pour accueillir des étapes. Pour les prochaines années, Cycling Unlimited AG, la société qui dirige le Tour de Suisse, a signé différents contrats avec des villes et des villages. " Sur la carte, nous avons déjà les contours du Tour jusqu'en 2027 ", s'est réjoui Olivier Senn.
Le Tour de Suisse de retour en Romandie
Après avoir presque évité la Suisse romande, le Tour de Suisse va revenir dans l'Ouest du pays dans un avenir proche, aussi grâce au rapprochement avec les organisateurs du Tour de Romandie. Ainsi, Villars-sur-Ollon dans le canton de Vaud accueillera une étape en 2023. Les autres lieux de départ et arrivée seront dévoilés dans les semaines à venir.
PREVIEW | Tour de Suisse 2023 stage 3 - Evenepoel's first climbing test since Giro d'Italia abandon
Preview . On stage 3 of the Tour de Suisse the race heads into the mountains. The summit finish in Villars-sur-Ollon will be very important in the fight for the overall classification and will set the early situation for the race.
Villars-sur-Ollon has seen the likes of Chris Froome win atop it, and it returns for the 2023 edition. The 143-kilometer day is mostly flat and a lead-up to the final climb, but here the overall classification will be turned on it's head and the contenders for the victory will emerge.
Departure and arrival times (estimated CET):
- June 13 - Stage 3: Tafers - Villars-sur-Ollon, 143.8km. From 1:40 p.m. to 5:20 p.m.
Biniam Girmay returns to winning ways with scintillating sprint victory on stage 2 of the Tour de Suisse
In it's essence, it's a very simple and mostly calm day. Most of the stage is flat, until the Col des Mosses where the riders find 13.5 kilometers at 4.1%. Not the easiest of climbs with some harder gradients, but it won't be a burning effort. It ends with 35.5 kilometers to go and a long descent follows into Aigle where the UCI is based, shortly after to reach the final ascent.
This is one where massive watts are expected. A calm day, constant but steep climb, Villars-sur-Ollon will see fireworks. 10.7 kilometers at 7.8%, it's a constant ascent but one that does feature a few hairpins. Important gaps will be carved in this ascent, and those who need the climbs to make their bid for overall victory absolutely have to attack the race.

A tiny breeze from the northwest, it shouldn't have an effect on the day. It's quite possible that there will be some rain which can cause some tension in the one descent of the day, however it should all end up with a regular finale.
Profiles & Route Tour de Suisse 2023
Remco Evenepoel - Form, form, form... How will Evenepoel be? The time-trial is little indication to be honest, he is a clear specialist and the route was pan-flat. My question hence remains the same as in the opening day, only after this stage can we judge how well the World Champion is doing. Last year he finished outside the Top10 here and similar could be possible.
UAE Team Emirates - Form is a question for both leaders. Jay Vine has just came off of the Giro d'Italia, where his form widely varied. Hence it's a big question how he'll show himself here, but if he does have good legs this is exactly the kind of day that'll suit him. As for Juan Ayuso he restarted competition only in Romandie, there he looked brilliant in the time-trial but not so good in the climbs. His form will surely have improved since, but as many others he also surely doesn't know exactly where he stands.
Mattias Skjelmose - The sixth place in the opening time-trial was a great display of power from the Dane, I have high expectations of him. Simultaneously I think that the longer climbs are still a meaningful challenge to him, he may crack, but he may also take the win judging by how well he rode in the spring this year.
Sergio Higuita - Higuita has been very inconsistent this year, there's no certainty that he'll be up there tomorrow even if the stage suits him. Last year the Colombian was on fire here, he entered the final time-trial in the yellow jersey and finished second. If he shows the same legs back again he will be a contender for victory.
TV Guide - Where and When to watch Tour de Suisse 2023
Bahrain - Victorious - Pello Bilbao and Gino Mäder lead the team coming into the mountain stage, having two options provides the possibility for some tactical play however it's unlikely that they will be in the fight for the win. Nevertheless the podium is quite possible, this is a pure climbing test whilst other finales will see the team more able to use their numbers.
Neilson Powless - Rigoberto Urán could be an option but EF will certainly put their utmost focus on Powless. For the Grand Tours there are no guarantees but here the American will be a big favourite for the GC and judging by his spring a very consistent rider too. It'll be an important ride but I trust he'll be up to the challenge.
The GC fight will truly open up here and it's set to be an explosive stage. The day is very easy on the riders, and the final climb will be very fast. As everyone will be gauging their level I don't expect anyone taking many risks, but many possible podium contenders still lay outside of the names above. Felix Gall , Wilco Kelderman and Romain Bardet are almost certainly names to take into consideration for the tops pots.
Alexey Lutsenko , Ion Izagirre , Ben Tulett and possibly Rui Costa are also among the outsiders for the day. Here others can also be discovered in the fight for the GC, but the main figures are present and will hope for a good day.

Granfondo Suisse lets you discover the Alpes Vaudoises, a cycling paradise that is home of the headquarters of the UCI and regularly hosts the Tour de Romandie and Tour de Suisse. It’s a real challenge with courses in the high mountains.
Villars is located in the heart of the Alpes Vaudoises, at an altitude of 1,300 meters, on a south-facing natural terrace. For over 150 years, the resort has offered a wide range of sports and leisure activities to families and visitors of all ages, away from the urban hustle and bustle. All the pleasures of a holiday are there to enjoy in an idyllic setting, with spectacular views stretching from Lake Geneva to Mont Blanc. The urban center of Geneva and Montreux are within easy reach at 120 kilometers and 30 kilometers respectively.
Villars has managed to retain its village feel despite significant tourism development due to a construction policy dedicated to maintaining architectural uniformity. Old ancestral chalets sit alongside new wood and stone constructions, with the aim of retaining a harmony that blends perfectly with the natural setting. The presence of many protected areas also helps preserving the natural environment, so visitors can enjoy a typical mountain ambiance, ideal for getting away from it all and relaxing, along with stunning views. Villars has an 18-hole golf course at 1,600 m, in a unique and beautiful setting, popular with professionals and amateurs alike.
The mountains are ideal for recharging your batteries. The Bains de Villars wellness center offers a haven of peace dedicated to physical and mental well-being in a brand new complex. Taking your time, relaxing, escaping from everyday life for a while, surrounded by panoramic alpine views, is the recipe for a great stay in Villars.
Villars has a long tradition of cycling. The resort has organized many stage arrivals of the Tour de Romandie and the Tour de Suisse. It has also hosted several cyclosportives criss-crossing the roads of the region. Villars offers its visitors numerous routes for road, mountain and electric bikes.
Starting from the UCI headquarters in Aigle, the course of the Granfondo Suisse will have a flat start making two 25km loops towards Lac Leman for a totally flat and fast first half of the race. After the two loops, the race then heads south to the city of Bex, crossing the Rhone River to Monthey where the first climb of the day starts. The 22.9km climb has an average gradient of 3.4% with a peak of 12% and goes in three steps from an elevation of 407m in Monthey to the top at 1234m.
After the downhill back through Monthey and Bex, a second climb towards Villars-sur-Ollon halfway the Col de la Croix will decide who is the best climber at the finish line. The final climb is 12.1km with an average gradient of 6.5% and parts up to 15% bringing riders from the valley at an elevation of 405m to the finish at 1242m.

Venue Travel & Parking
🏟️ Address : Tour de Suisse Route, Touring, Multiple Towns, Switzerland Directions in Google Maps
The long course route means that travel plans will depend on where you choose to watch the race. As a general rule, if you are watching away from a large city or town, you will need access to a road vehicle.
Parking at the start and finish points can be challenging and there may be road closures, particularly in the city areas. Therefore, be prepared to park further away and walk.
Many spectators prefer to choose a spot along the course and find a parking space on arrival. For hill and mountain terrain, you may choose to park at the base in the morning and hike up to your viewing spot. The course roads close early in the morning, so you need to set out very early to use them.
Taxi services can be helpful in avoiding the need to find a parking space. However, if you choose to view on a more remote part of the course, be sure to book your pick-up in advance or book the taxi to park and wait for you. The course roads close early in the morning, so you need to set out very early to use them.
Accommodation in or around Multiple Towns will provide the easiest access to Stage 3: Tafers > Villars-sur-Ollon.
