Birg (2,684 m) is a summit of the Bernese Alps, overlooking the valley of Lauterbrunnen in the canton of Bern. It lies on the east flank of the Schilthorn, above the village of Mürren.

In winter Birg is part of a ski area and several cable car stations are located on its summit. Birg is also an intermediate station between Mürren and of the Schilthorn.

Birg appears seen from a helicopter as the ski station nearest to Blofeld’s alpine headquarters Piz Gloria in the James Bond film “On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.”
