The 70th edition of the Tour de Suisse took place from 10 to 18 June 2006. It consisted of nine stages covering a total of 1,468 km, starting in Baden and finishing in Bern.

2004 champion Jan Ullrich (T-Mobile Team) overcame a 50-second deficit on the final stage to win the overall title and the yellow jersey, in what became the last race of his career. Koldo Gil and Jörg Jaksche finished second and third, respectively, to complete the podium. In February 2012 Ulrich was found guilty of a doping offence by the Court of Arbitration for Sport. In consequence all his results gained since May 2005 were removed from his Palmares, including this one.[1] The official website of the race however still states Ullrich as the winner of 2006.[2]

Daniele Bennati (Lampre–Fondital) won the points classification as the most consistent finisher. Astana-Würth Cycling Team captured the team classification while Michael Albasini (Liquigas) captured the King of the Mountains and the intermediate sprints jerseys.
