New music video for the Wolli Song


Wolli, the destination's mascot, has been singing his song – the Wolli Song – for eight years. There is now a new music video for it.

The children are playing, the sheep are resting and Wolli is dancing - the new music video for the Wolli Song shows what families can enjoy in Zermatt. There are so many activities, from hiking to tobogganing to skiing, all in refreshing mountain air, surrounded by nature and with stunning views of the Matterhorn.

In 2011, the Zermatt artist and musician Urs Biner, aka Dan Daniell, composed the Wolli Song. He also appears in the new music video.
