Itinerary

Description

Join us for a once in a lifetime experience and witness the world-famous Passion Play held in the charming and picturesque Bavarian village of Oberammergau. In the midst of the horror of the Thirty Years’ War in the 17th century, after months of suffering and death from the plague, the residents of Oberammergau made a solemn vow that they would perform a “Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ” every ten years if God would spare them from any more deaths. Miraculously, the plague took no more lives in the village. True to their word, the villagers performed their first play in 1634, and have continued to do so every ten years since. We combine entrance to this amazing spectacle with a few days relaxing in and around Munich and the Austrian Tyrol.

We fly to Munich and transfer to our overnight hotel in the Munich area with dinner included.

Day 2 - Munich with guided city tour & the Austrian Tyrol
Munich, commonly known for its annual Oktoberfest celebration and its beer halls, is also home to numerous museums and impressive historic buildings. As the capital of Bavaria there is plenty to see and our guided city tour allows us to view the city’s most important sights. We will then have time to explore Munich at leisure, before we transfer to our hotel in the Austrian Tyrol where we will enjoy a welcome drink before dinner.

Day 3 - Salzburg with guided city tour
Today we visit the enchanting city of Salzburg with its beautifully-preserved Old Town overlooked by the medieval Hohensalzburg Castle. Here we enjoy a guided tour to take in the best that this city has to offer as well as some time to spend at leisure. 

Day 4 - Achensee Railway & Boat Cruise
We board the Achensee Steam Railway, Europe’s oldest steam cog railway, which climbs up through lush meadows and alpine forests to beautiful Lake Achen. Once here, we enjoy a panoramic boat cruise across the lake, set against the imposing backdrop of the Karwendel Mountains, taking in the spectacular scenery from a different perspective.

Leaving the Austrian Tyrol, we travel to Bavaria and check in to our hotel in the Oberammergau area. After an included lunch in Oberammergau, we take our seats for the famous Passion Play. This historic and powerful play takes place in a covered auditorium with an open-air stage set against a magnificent backdrop of green fields and mountains. In accordance with the vow, the thousands of actors, musicians and stage technicians all come from the village of Oberammergau and people from around the world come to experience this wonderful spectacle of pageantry. Dinner is included during the three-hour interval (between 5pm-8pm).
