The House of Switzerland with the Athletes Lounge run by Swiss Olympic is the official meeting place of the Swiss Olympic Team 2012. So your chances of coming face to face with a Swiss athlete in the House of Switzerland are pretty good.
Among the highlights of the House of Switzerland are the official medal celebrations for Swiss athletes. The Swiss medal winners will be visiting the House of Switzerland to celebrate their victory with the fans and the official delegation.
No, the Swiss delegation has its overnight accommodation elsewhere. The athletes’ accommodation is organised by Swiss Olympic and is out-of-bounds to the general public.
Yes, thanks to public viewing, you can enjoy the Olympic atmosphere in the House of Switzerland too. A large screen in the outdoor area and screens at various locations inside Glaziers Hall and the Bernese Chalet ensure that you can follow the contests directly as they happen.
Please note carefully, however, that only a selection of the contests will be shown live in the House of Switzerland!
No, admission tickets for Olympic Park can only be purchased from the official sales points, and the House of Switzerland is not one of these.

There is a direct Underground link on the Jubilee Line from London Bridge tube station (close to the House of Switzerland) to Olympic Park in Stratford. The journey takes less than 20 minutes.
We can recommend the special experience of travelling by boat along the Thames and the Limehouse Cut canal to Olympic Park, which individual visitors can book in advance. The departure point, London Bridge Pier, is only a few minutes’ walk from the House of Switzerland.
