  • Visitor Information

The House of Switzerland at Glaziers Hall near Borough Market will be one of the few National Olympic Hospitality Houses to be fully open to the public during the London Olympics. Overlooking the Thames with views of St Paul's Cathedral and the Gherkin, the swish conference centre and its surrounding area (including the Mug House bar, Southwark Cathedral's Millennium Courtyard and the Cathedral Square next to the Thames) will be transformed into a vibrant Red Zone. The very best of Swiss sport, culture, tourism, cuisine and creativity will be on display. The House of Switzerland is the official venue for the Swiss medal celebrations and for the first time it will provide an Athletes' Lounge, where competitors will be able to meet. The catering establishment of Anton Mosimann, the Michelin-starred Swiss chef, will serve Swiss specialities to visitors at three different restaurants within the venue. Swiss creativity is showcased through the 'Swiss Games' - a compilation of three games for mobile phones and tablets, developed exclusively for the House of Switzerland's presence at this year's Olympic Games. There will also be a range of open-air concerts, films, food, special events including a celebration of Swiss National Day on 1st August, and the 'Bernese Games', a family-orientated event, during which visitors will be able to experience traditional Swiss sports such as 'Schwingen' (mountain wrestling) or 'Steinstossen' (stone put). All the Olympic action will be broadcast live on a giant screen in a courtyard which should be painted red both literally and metaphorically. All in all, the Swiss have clearly put in a huge effort - and their hospitality base looks certain to be one of the go-to destinations of the Games. For more information about the House of Switzerland visit the official website. Map and nearby hotels.

 

About Glaziers Hall

A conference centre overlooking the Thames beside London Bridge, Glaziers Hall offers five flexible event spaces ideal for corporate events, presentations, conferences, receptions and dinners. It was built by the Hays Wharf company during the Napoleonic wars as a three-storey warehouse, its distinctive Georgian industrial facade being added when it was enlarged to five floors in 1850.
