The Muotathal Experience
Alp Cheese Market
The Muotatal Alp Cheese Market was launched in 1996 by a group of enterprising mountain farmers. The aim initially was to bring the Muotatal alp cheeses to a wider audience and to promote direct selling. At the time the farmers had become concerned about their traditional resellers in the Canton of Schwyz, the dairies Toni Mölkerei and Swiss Dairy Food (SDF) and feared that, longer term, they might seek alternative suppliers.
"Wetterschmöcker" - The Weather Diviners
The Innerschwyz Meteorologists (better known as the "Muotathaler Wetterfrösche" - literally Muotathal weather frogs) are a group of amateur meteorologists from the Innerschwyz Region.
Twice each year, and not without a certain amount of humour, they present their weather predictions to a public meeting of the Innerschwyz Meteorological Society. These largely agricultural "weather diviners" use their observations from around the surrounding countryside to colour their weather forecasts. The precise formula is however secret to each soothsayser.
In 1875 the miner Alois Ulrich discovered the entrance to a cave near Stalden in the Muota valley. Despite repeated investigation armed with little more than a rope, pick, ladder and a simple hand lantern, he never managed to find the end of the cave. Thus began an eventful history of exploration and charting of the Hölloch, which at 190 known kilometers is the fourth largest karst cave system in the world.
With its 280 km of footpaths, the Muota Valley offers a wide range of possibiities for relaxation and fun in the great outdoors for all ages. Click on the link below for more information and suggestions:
Example for families: The "Wetterfrosch" walk - discover, through the fourteen information panels along the route, how the weather can be forecast by interpreting signs from nature. This walk provides an opportunity for the whole family to enjoy nature first hand and return home all the richer for the experience. There are two routes to choose from; the longer route takes 2 hours and the shorter about 1 hour. The longer route offers a refreshment stop at the Güggelibesenbeiz mountain café along the way.
Discover this beautiful region during winter. Many winter activites are available in the region around Muotathal.
For families and beginners, for example, there are four marked snow-shoe routes. If you'd prefer simply to walk in the snow, a number of little used roads and prepared routes are available allowing visitors to make the most of their stay. Marvel at the views across the winter mountain landscapes.
The crisp, fresh winter air is good for the health and will put colour into your cheeks. Why not stop off in one of the restaurants along your way and add the finishing touch to your day out.
