"Saxony's long and very successful tradition in winter sports calls for an adequate representation at the Winter Olympics. I fondly remember the friendly atmosphere at the Saxony House in Turin. Canadians are just as enthusiastic about winter sports and are very open-minded about Europeans. This is why the Winter Games in Vancouver provide the perfect setting to effectively represent each of Saxony's facets. Get excited by the warm-hearted, innovative and athletic spirit which the region is famous for and pass it on to fans and athletes from all over the world."

Saxony in Vancouver
Welcome to the "SAXONY HOUSE"!

It's the return of the tried and tested: While the magic of the outstanding success of the Saxony House at Turin's XX Olympic Games in 2006 still lingers on, the Free State of Saxony is going to, once again, position the State of The Arts as an attractive business location, a successful sports region, and a premium travel destination at the XXI Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver in 2010.

Saxony's presence at the Olympic Games is well appreciated by all - the Canadian hosts, athletes and spectators from around the world. Located once again at the core of the Olympic metropolis - The Vancouver Rowing Club will transform its 19th century aura into a glittering Saxony House, offering magnificent views. What better place to exhibit the prowess of Saxony's art, culture and booming economy, its sports and the innovative drive of Saxon inventors!

On behalf of the Saxon State government, the host organization "Tourismus Marketing Gesellschaft Sachsen mbH" (TMGS), will be delighted to provide you with attractive offers on how to make the most of the Olympic Games to give your guests a special treat.

Turn the Saxony House into your very own Olympic venue!

Greeting by Prime Minister Tillich
