The village with a touch of wilfulness
Muotathal is synonymous with nature, pristine authenticity and tradition. The region is home to unique natural treasures such as the Hölloch cave system, the virgin spruce forest and the karst/limestone area Silberen.
Geographically Muotathal belongs to the ten largest municipalities of Switzerland in terms of area. Most of the 3,543 residents live in the village. There are quiet unpopulated landscapes extending around the village with hiking trails and bike routes – amidst Alpine fields, forests, waterfalls, karst/limestone areas and mountains. The wild waters of the Muota are also a dominant feature of the landscape.
Pearls of nature
Nature in the Muotatal has remained pristine and untamed to this day. The great natural treasures include:
- Hölloch: one of the largest cave systems in the world
- Bödmeren: the largest virgin spruce forest in Europe
- The karst/limestone landscape of Silberen: the largest karst/limestone area in Switzerland
The Glattalp is also a jewel. The coldest place in Switzerland has made a name for itself in winter. In summer the beautiful Alp with the lake is also suitable for family hikes.
