Coordinates: 47 °  N , 7 °  E ; CH1903:  579785  /  219 369 The agglomeration Biel is a greatly monocentric aligned agglomeration which, in addition Biel / Bienne as Kernstadt includes only the densely built immediate environment.

The settlement area of Biel / Bienne, Aegerten, Bellmund, Brügg, Ipsach, Evilard (Leubringen), Nidau, Port, Schwadernau, Studen and Worben forms a contiguous settlement area in which the municipal boundaries are no longer visible.

According to the current FSO definition, 101,271 people live in 27 municipalities in the Biel agglomeration (as of 2012). According to this definition, in addition to the core town of Biel / Bienne, the municipalities of Aegerten , Bellmund , Brügg , Evilard , Ipsach , Nidau , Port , Schwadernau , Studen and Worben belong to the main core of the agglomeration. The agglomeration belt includes Mörigen , Orpund , Pieterlen , Safnern , Sauge , Scheuren , Sutz-Lattrigen , as well as Jens , Ligerz , Meinisberg , Merzligen , Orvin , Péry-La Heutte , Romont and Twann-Tüscherz , who were newly added compared to the definition of 2000 .

In some models that do not follow the official specifications of the Federal Statistical Office , Büren an der Aare , Dotzigen , Epsach , Hagneck , Hermigene , Lengnau , Plateau de Diesse and Täuffelen are also included in the Biel agglomeration. Following these models, the Biel agglomeration would have around 114,000 inhabitants.

Contrary to the overall European population development, the agglomeration of Biel has seen significant growth in the recent past. Population growth of 7% is expected by 2030. It is expected that by 2030 over 100,000 people will live in the closer agglomeration of Biel (i.e. agglomeration of Biel without Busswil near Büren, Sauge and Worben).
