Oberammergau Passion Play - Once In A Decade Experience
Booking now for 2020
Beginning in 1634, the Oberammergau Passion Play is performed every ten years by the people of Oberammergau in southern Germany, depicting the Passion of Jesus. It’s a unique event, with more than 2,000 actors, singers, instrumentalists and backstage technicians. In fact there’s up to 200 players on stage in some scenes, staged in the specially erected Passionspeilhaus, a roofed auditorium, and the Play is staged in to two performances, one in the afternoon and one in the evening - with dinner served in-between. Our specially prepared itinerary includes an evening stay in Oberammergau, along with four nights in the breathtaking Austrian Tyrol to enjoy the tremendous Alpine scenery.
