Subnational exclaves

  • A département in France has an exclave:
    • The département of the Vaucluse, part of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur has an exclave in the neighbouring département of Drôme, the Enclave des Papes, separated from the Vaucluse proper by roughly 2.5 km at the closest point. The Enclave des Papes contains 4 towns, Valreas, Visan, Grillon and Richerenches.
  • Many of the cantons of Switzerland have exclaves:
    • Bern has two small exclaves, Münchenwiler and Clavaleyres; the first is entirely surrounded by Fribourg, the second by Fribourg and Vaud's exclave. The secession of the new canton of Jura in 1979 left Bern temporarily with another exclave, Laufental, bounded by Jura, Solothurn (main and both exclaves), Basel-Country and France. Laufental joined Basel-Country in 1994.
    • Lucerne has two pieces separated from the main territory by the Vierwaldstättersee; one borders Schwyz, the other Nidwalden.
    • The "half-canton" of Obwalden is in two large pieces, separated by a strip of Nidwalden.
    • Nidwalden's district of Hergiswil is separated by an arm of the Vierwaldstättersee.
    • Fribourg is perhaps the champion: a large exclave bounded by Vaud and Lake Neuchâtel; two enclaves, Surpierre and Vuissens, within Vaud; and another enclave, Wallenbuch, within Bern.
    • Solothurn has two exclaves, Dorneck and Thierstein, both bounded on the south by Basel-Country and on the north by France; as well as the enclave of Steinhof which is entirely surrounded by Bern.
    • Schaffhausen, the only canton lying mostly on the north bank of the Rhine, is cut into three parts by German corridors to the Rhine. The middle part is the largest, and embraces the German enclave of Büsingen. The upper and middle parts border on Thurgau, the middle and lower parts on Zürich.
    • The divided canton of Appenzell is surrounded by Sankt-Gallen. Since its partition on religious lines in 1597, Appenzell Innerrhoden has three small exclaves, one enclaved in Appenzell Ausserrhoden and two bordering also on Sankt-Gallen.
    • Vaud has one exclave, Avenches, bordered by Lake Neuchâtel, Fribourg and the tiny Bernese exclave of Clavaleyres. The coast of Lake Neuchâtel is thus in seven pieces belonging to four cantons: clockwise from the north they are Neuchâtel, Bern (main), Vaud (Avenches exclave), Fribourg (main), Vaud (main), Fribourg (exclave), Vaud (main).
    • Geneva has two small exclaves within Vaud, together forming the commune of Céligny. The larger has a shoreline on Lake Geneva.

"Practical" exclaves

Some territories, while not geographically detached from their motherland, are more easily reached by entering a foreign country, because of their location in a hilly area, or because the only road available enters that foreign place before coming back to the mother country. These territories may be called "practical exclaves," "pene-exclaves" or "quasi-exclaves" and can be found along many borders, particularly those that are not heavily defended. They will only be attached to the motherland via an extremely small or thin slice of land.

Historical exclaves
