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.

Coach Itinerary

Ferry to Calais and overnight stay in France on a bed and breakfast basis.

Day 2

Travel onwards to our overnight hotel in the Austrian Tyrol, with dinner included.

Day 3 - Oberammergau Passion Play

Leaving the Austrian Tyrol, we travel to Bavaria for an included lunch in Oberammergau before taking 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 4pm-7pm). Afterwards, we check in to our hotel in the Oberammergau area.

Day 4 - Austrian Tyrol via Innsbruck

We leave Bavaria and head back towards the Austrian Tyrol, stopping for a few hours in the beautiful city of Innsbruck with its magnificent backdrop of snow-capped peaks. There is plenty to see around the city, including the Old Town and the Golden Roof, built for Emperor Maximilian I as a royal box from which to view tournaments in the square below. We continue on to our hotel in the Austrian Tyrol, our base for the next two nights, with dinner included.

Day 5 - 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.

Day 6 - Vienna via Salzburg

Bidding farewell to the Austrian Tyrol, we head towards Vienna, stopping for a few hours in the enchanting city of Salzburg with its beautifully-preserved Old Town overlooked by the medieval Hohensalzburg Castle. We continue on to our hotel in Vienna where we stay for the next three nights, with dinner included.
