Lyss lies on the eastern edge of a wide valley that extends southwest to Lake Murten. West of this valley lie Lake Neuchâtel and Lake Biel, and beyond that the Jura mountains.

The valley is flat and was subject to flooding until 1878, when a major hydraulic engineering project changed the courses of the Aare and the Zihl and lowered the level of the three lakes by 2.5 meters. In addition, water from the Aare, the Broye, the Zihl, and the Schüss was diverted into the Nidau-Büren Canal and the Hagneck Canal.

Lyss has an area of . Of this area, 32.4% is used for agricultural purposes, while 34.6% is forested. Of the rest of the land, 32.6% is settled (buildings or roads) and the remainder (0.4%) is non-productive (rivers or glaciers).

istor
Lyss was a sleepy agricultural village until the late 19th century, when the arrival of the railroad from Berne to Biel in 1864 and the restructuring of the watershed led to extensive population growth. In 1876, another railway line from Lausanne to Solothurn was built through Lyss. This made the town a rail hub.
