Montebello Curve

After Morteratsch, the Bernina Express passes the Montebello Curve – one of the most popular photo points along this stretch. The train takes a 180-degree turn here, revealing to the right in the direction of travel views of the Bernina massif and the Morteratsch Glacier. This third-largest glacier in the Eastern Alps lies in the upper section of the Morteratsch Valley. The highest peak in the Eastern Alps – the 4049-metre-high Piz Bernina – sets the scene to perfection.
