Gœrsdorf (German: Görsdorf) is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Grand Est in north-eastern France. The commune merged with Mitschdorf at the start of 1973.

Gœrsdorf is part of the Natural Park of the North Vosges region.

Notable people[edit]

Author and priest Joseph Kuntz was born at Gœrsdorf on 25 July 1850: he died on 7 January 1892. Between those dates he founded the journal "l'Elsässer" with his sponsor, Abbot Muller-Simonis. (The German language name of the journal recalls the fact that between 1871 and 1918 Alsace was part of Germany).
