"I'm aware of the great challenge, but that's exactly what I find particularly appealing," Schreuder, who is currently Ajax assistant coach, told Hoffenheim's website.
"During my first spell, not just the club but the whole region became very dear to me, and I'm pleased, of course, that my family will join me on my return.
"I thank Ajax and, above all, sporting director Marc Overmars for their cooperation, understanding and fulfilment of my request for a change.
"I was offered a great opportunity and I coached a young, motivated and highly talented team that has accepted and implemented our ideas."
Hoffenheim sit ninth in the Bundesliga after 26 matches.
