Bern is also the capital of the canton of Bern, the second-most populous of Switzerland's cantons.

It is notably surrounded by the Aare, a major river of the Swiss Plateau.

Bern invaded and conquered Aargau in 1415 and Vaud in 1536, as well as other smaller territories, thereby becoming the largest city-state north of the Alps; by the 18th century, it comprised most of what is today the canton of Bern and the canton of Vaud.
