New official access and egress rules for paddlers on the Muota River

Together with the landowners, farmers and the Muotathal District Council Authorities, an official access and egress agreement for paddlers on the Muota River has been negotiated, which comes into effect from spring 2017. The aim of the Agreement is to limit the impact of canoeing on the farmed land and pastures along the Muota.

The Agreement specifies official access and egress points for canoeists and users of other craft on the Muota. These points are all suitably signed. Similarly, various panels indicating areas where egress is forbidden, except in an emergency, have also been erected along the river.
It is strictly forbidden to put in or take out at any other points along the river.
Failure to comply with these rules regarding access and egress points and other specially designated areas may be subject to fines.

It is essential that all paddlers follow these new instructions. Thank you.

At the Rambach access and egress point parking is not allowed on the gravelled area alongside the road. This area is only for loading and unloading of boats after which vehicles must be parked on the parking area found off-road ca. 200 metres upstream.                                  

Access to the Rambach gravel depot must remain free at all times to enable access for the business operators. Users of the parking area further up the road must equally ensure free access to the rubbish tip for the operating company at all times.

Vorderbrücke egress - Classic and Sprint Finish
There is no parking available here. Boats must be carried up the left bank to the gravel area at the Rambach access/egress point.  Due to the fact that the main road between Vorder Brugg and Rambach is in a rural zone, it is not permitted to park on the footpath. Failure to comply with this rule will lead to fines from the police.                              

Selgis egress                               
At the Selgis egress point there is sufficient parking on the gravelled area alongside the river with further parking available on the righthand side of the main road 200m downstream of the bridge.
