Shaped centuries after centuries by the waters of the Birse, the impressive walls of the gorges of Court are appreciated by climbing and hiking enthusiasts.
The Birs, which springs from Pierre-Pertuis and flows into the Rhine in Basel, forms important gorges upstream and downstream of Moutier. The passage through the gorges of Court, shaped by the waters of the Birse, is done through a footpath along bridges, stairs and even a man-made tunnel. The walls, dug in the Graitery, rise sometimes steeply, sometimes less steeply from the river. A walk in the gorges of Court allows the hiker to enjoy the coolness brought by the shade of the walls.
