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 relaxing few days in Vienna and the Austrian Tyrol.
