Ipsach is a municipality in the administrative district of Biel/Bienne in the canton of Berne in Switzerland.

The area around Ipsach was often settled during the neolithic, Bronze Age and Hallstatt eras. The former bogs and peat moss near the village is full of prehistoric artifacts. During the Roman era, there was a small town near what is now Oberdorf-Buchseefeld and the remains of a Roman road to Petinesca has been discovered in the Ipsachmoos.
