Tour de France clashes with Biel

1/25/2016 – The 49. International Chess Festival Biel will start and end a week later than planned, and will now take place from 23rd July to 3rd August. The reason for the delay is another sporting event: the Tour de France. The 16th stage of the tour leads the cyclists and their followers to Bern and thus all hotels in the region will be fully booked. Press Release

International Chess Festival Biel

The 49th International Chess Festival Biel must unfortunately be postponed by a week. It will now take place from Saturday, July 23 until Wednesday, August 3 2016. The dates planned previously overlap with the Tour de France passing through Bern, thus occupying most of the hotels in the region for several days.


The exact schedule and further information will be published by the end of January on the official website of the Festival www.bielchessfestival.ch . The Master Open (MTO) will be played over 9 rounds this year.
