9 Days - Tour No OBE2022
The world famous Passion play in Oberammergau is traditionally held every 10 years and was due to be performed again throughout the summer of 2020. However, due to the Covid virus it has been re-scheduled for 2022. In 1633, when the small Bavarian Village of Oberammergau was in the grip of a Plague, its inhabitants vowed that if they were spared they would in future perform every ten years a Passion Play depicting Christ's bitter suffering. In 1634 the villagers fulfilled their solemn promise for the first time, and for hundreds of years since then despite dangers and threats they have loyally kept their vow.
