Muotathal

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.

Highlights in Muotatal

Wild nature untouched by human hand lies hidden in Muotatal. It can be discovered on hiking trails or during a ride drawn by sled dogs.

Down-to-earth culture

The popular theatre Muotathal plays from October to December, with the places always fully booked. The “Muotitaler Alpchäsmärcht” (Muotitaler Alpine cheese market) has become a major attraction over the years. On one weekend in October the Muotathal Alpine farmers come and sell what they produced in summer up in the Alps.

The Muotathal people

The Muotathal locals have retained their down-to-earth culture and rugged dialect. Some say this is due to the remote location, while others find it comes from the strong self-will of the Muotathal people. You can discover their natural wittiness on the fun hiking trail – or at the half-yearly public gatherings of the Muotathal weather tellers. The gnarled men present their prognoses for the next half year with humour, based on observations of nature.
