We sang this at the local pub after our German classes ended - not sure if it counts.

Oh dear me. Perhaps on the day of the hangover yes, he he he.
Otherwise, I think they sing pretty much the same stuff in Pubs as during a football match.

This one's pretty traditional, too, if one's in the right company

Re: Traditional Swiss Drinking & Pub Songs

Hubby isn't one to hang in pubs - or sing usually - but my mother-in-law has a cassette with Mani Matter singing that they both quite gleefully sing along with.

Here is an example (I can imagine this style being quite popular to sing in pubs also):

If you liked that one, maybe this one will be good too? I find this one to be very catchy.

No, they were not up in Zürich. The only song which became popular enough to be entoned in pubs etc was "Grüzi Wohl Frau Stirnimaa"

Re: Traditional Swiss Drinking & Pub Songs

I'm surprised no-one has mentioned "üüterli ab haua". It's always the first one I think of when it comes to Swiss drinking songs
