Międzyrzecze Górne [mjɛnd͡zɨˈʐɛt͡ʂɛ ˈɡurnɛ] (German: Ober Kurzwald) is a village in Gmina Jasienica, Bielsko County, Silesian Voivodeship, southern Poland. It has a population of 2,279 (2009) and lies in the historical region of Cieszyn Silesia.

The village of Międzyrzecze was first mentioned in a Latin document of Diocese of Wrocław called Liber fundationis episcopatus Vratislaviensis from around 1305 as Mesizrocha.[1] It belonged then to the Duchy of Teschen, formed in 1290.

In the second quarter of 15th century a number of Germans settled here and formed a settlement called Konradiswalde (Konrad's wood), which later was known as Kurzwald, and eventually as Międzyrzecze Górne.[2]

There are two churches in the village, Lutheran church and Catholic Saint Martin Church.
