In 1633, when the small Bavarian village of Oberammergau was in the grip of the Plague, the inhabitants vowed that should they be spared, then every ten years thereafter they would perform a Passion Play, depicting Christ’s bitter suffering.

 

Hundreds of years later, the village still keeps this promise, and though the text and music have been adapted many times since, the original concept has endured through the centuries. 2020 sees the return of the Oberammergau Passion Play to draw audiences from across the world.

 

Before experiencing this moving event, spend 2 nights in the Bavarian capital of Munich, with a guided tour of the city’s many wonderful sights and free time to shop and explore.

 

Due to great demand, all places on category 1 departures are now sold out however we do have a waiting list should there be any cancellations. Alternatively, we have limited availability remaining on our category 2 ticket departures.
