Opening of the Austria House Tirol
The official opening of the Austria House Tirol will take place at 7pm by Dr. Karl Stoss, President of the Austrian Olympic Committee (ӦOC). After welcoming the cyclists, make your way to the Tirolean Alpine Garden and enjoy the spectacular, historic display by the Tiroler Schützen (Tirolean Home
Guards). This traditional custom dates back to former times when they defended the so-called ‘Land on the Mountains’, now known as Tirol. Having stood the test of time, 55 Tirolean guards in full costume uniform will parade with their rifles to the sounds of traditional music from a local Tirolean band.
