Germany House (Deutsches Haus): London Olympics
The Germans were quick off the mark in securing their official Olympic home-from-home. As the first committee to finalise plans they picked not one, but two unique and iconic London landmarks. The Museum of London Docklands and the 575ft five-star cruise liner MS Deutschland in the nearby West India Docks. Deutsches Haus wasn't alone in choosing the Museum of London as its preferred destination - the building will also host The World Union of Olympic Cities (WUOC) for the duration of the Games. The organisation will take over the renovated Terrace Rooms and Garden and will act as a platform for member cities that have previously hosted or hope to host in the near future. Not to be overshadowed, Deutsches Haus is the largest ever corporate hire for the Museum, which will be closed from 9th July until 16th September in order to accommodate them. Deutsches Haus will cater for international guests, business, media and political visitors. Whilst something of an Oktoberfest will take place in the Fan Fest area, where an estimated 1,500 daily visitors can get into the Bavarian spirit with the help of German beers, bratwursts, pretzels and live music.
