Birs River Landscape

The river Birs connects the eight municipalities between Pfeffingen, Birsfelden (canton Basel-Landschaft ), and Dornach (canton Solothurn).

This river landscape (Birslandschaft) is an ecological area. It was named Nature Landscape of the Year in 2012. On the Birsuferweg, themed panels inform about the special features.

Nature flourishes undisturbed in the Birs area, a densely populated region. The Birspark Landschaft (BiLa) working group oversees the developments.

The projects focus on recreational areas connected to the settlements and nature.
