The Bernina Express travels through the breathtaking glacier world of the Bernina massif between St. Moritz (CH) and Tirana (IT). The difference in height that the train makes on its journey lies between the two stations at approx. 2,000 vertical meters. In clear weather an unforgettable experience.
