House of Switzerland will receive visitors and athletes from the entire world in a 4.100 square-meters space, which will have three houses and an open air park located by the Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon).
The activities are open to people of all ages and include an open air synthetic ice rink with 200 square-meters, a race track with a timing system, and traditional Swiss tourist attractions, such as a revolving gondola, a Swiss train and a giant snow globe. The place will also have a food court that offers the country’s specialties, such as the “Feuerring” – Swiss barbecue – as well as the famous Swiss chocolate and cheese, of course. The visitors will be able to set picnics in one of the place’s lawn fields and watch the games being broadcast live via a giant screen. The musical events include performances of DJs and street artists, with movies and workshops topping off the events calendar. As a legacy, Switzerland promises to reform the field in Lagoa according to the standards of the Brazilian Baseball Confederation.
Venue: Baseball park at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas (Rodrigo de Freitas Lagoon)
