Burg Gorge

The Biederthal / Burg gorge is a small, hidden gem on the border between France and Switzerland. The river Birsig has it's source in Switzerland near to the village of Burg, best known for its Schloss perched on the top of a large fin of rock. The stream cascades down a pretty little gorge in a series of small waterfalls between steep but short limestone walls.  The climb up this gorge is an interesting and pictureque scramble from the bottom in France to the top in Switzerland.
