Building of the Swiss Federal Archives.

The Swiss Federal Archives (German: Schweizerisches Bundesarchiv, French: Archives fédérales suisses) are the national archives of Switzerland. Additionally, the cantons have official archives of their own.

The Federal Archives were created in 1798 following the creation of the Helvetic Republic. They are located in Bern and governed by the Federal Act on Archiving.[1] In 2013 the archives held 60,000 linear meters of printed documents and 15 terabytes of digital documents.
