The venue, which overlooks The Tower of London, has been transformed to feature an alpine chalet, VIP lounge and dining areas, a Stiegl bar, athletes chill out room and an outdoor Tirolean Alpine Garden open to the general public.

It has welcomed around 40,000 visitors during the Games. A technology-themed night welcomed visitors from Olympic sponsors including Visa, P&G and Samsung.

"It has been a privilege for Trinity House to host Austria House. The Austrians certainly know how to party and the entertainment has been excellent varying from Traditional bands in Lederhosen to serious Garage and House music," said Edgar King, events manager at Trinity House.

"We have had Gun Salutes to welcome The Austrian Chancellor on the opening day of The House, very white Snow Days, Ishgl days and this weekend a Kitzbuhl day."
