Bern-Mittelland District in the Canton of Bern was created on 1 January 2010.[1] It is part of the Bern-Mittelland administrative region, and is the only district in the region. It contains 80 municipalities with an area of 946.30 km2 (365.37 sq mi) and a population (as of 2017) of 413,143.[2]

It is made up of the valley of the rivers Aare and Emme, some of the foothills of the Bernese Alps, as well as the plain around the capital Bern, and has many small farms and hilly forested regions with small to mid-sized towns scattered throughout. It is perhaps best known by foreigners and visitors for the Emmental. The classic Swiss cheese with holes Emmentaler comes from this region's forests and pastures, of hilly and low mountainous countryside in the 1,000 to 2,000 m (3,300 to 6,600 ft) range.
