On to the Queen Stage of the 86th Tour de Suisse. With the Alpine passes of Furka (the pinnacle of this year’s Tour de Suisse), Oberalp and Albula, this will be an extremely tough stage. In numbers, that means 211 kilometres and 4,700 metres in altitude to conquer on the way from Fiesch to La Punt. Those lagging behind from the first two mountain stages definitely have an opportunity to make up the deficit here. We will see the best climbers in action again, but the last kilometres will also require a large dose of courage and honed descent skills. The final kilometres from the Albula Pass down to La Punt will be something to see.
The holiday region of Andermatt is located in the heart of the Swiss Alps. The region is the ideal place for nature and culture lovers who are looking for relaxation as well as intense moments in a mountain wonderland.

A paradise for athletes and adventurers, a place of inspiration and tranquillity, a valley of unspoilt nature and full of cultural treasures.
