The capital or Federal City issue
Until 1848 the somewhat approximately coupled Confederation did not know a focal political association, but rather agents, chairmen, and Landammänner met a few times each year at the capital of the Lieu directing the Confederal Diet for one year.
Until 1500 the legates met more often than not in Lucerne, yet additionally in Zürich, Baden, Bern, Schwyz and so on., yet now and then likewise at spots outside of the confederation, for example, Constance. From the Swabian War in 1499 onwards until Reformation, most gatherings met in Zurich. A short time later the town corridor at Baden, where the yearly records of the ordinary citizens had been held routinely since 1426, turned into the most successive, yet not the sole place of get together. After 1712 Frauenfeld step by step broke down Baden. From 1526, the Catholic meetings were held for the most part in Lucerne, the Protestant gatherings from 1528 for the most part in Aarau, the one for the legitimation of the French Ambassador in Solothurn. In the meantime the syndicate for the Ennetbirgischen Vogteien situated in the present Ticino met from 1513 in Lugano and Locarno.
After the Helvetic Republic and amid the Mediation from 1803 until 1815 the Confederal Diet of the 19 Lieus met at the capitals of the directoral cantons Fribourg, Berne, Basel, Zurich, Lucerne and Solothurn.
After the Long Diet from 6 April 1814 to 31 August 1815 occurred in Zurich to supplant the constitution and the improvement of the Confederation to 22 cantons by the confirmation of the cantons of Valais, Neuchâtel and Geneva to full individuals, the directoral cantons of Lucerne, Zurich and Berne assumed control over the eating regimen in two-year turns.

Therefore on 28 November 1848, the Federal Assembly casted a ballot in larger part to find the seat of government in Berne. Also, as a prototypical government trade off, to allot other bureaucratic organizations, for example, the Federal Polytechnical School (1854, the later ETH) to Zurich, and different establishments to Lucerne, for example, the later SUVA (1912) and the Federal Insurance Court (1917).
