Additional Information

See the world-famous Passion Play in 2020 in the tiny Bavarian village of Oberammergau, Germany. Don’t miss out, this holiday is extremely popular and there are limited spaces available!

In 1633, the residents of the beautiful Bavarian village of Oberammergau made a vow, that if God would spare them the plague which was ravaging Europe, they would produce a play thereafter for all time depicting the life and death of Jesus Christ.

True to their word the first Passion Play was performed in 1634 and has taken place ever since that time. The performance now takes place every 10 years in a spectacular open-air theatre with the Bavarian mountains as a natural back drop, with a cast of over 2,000 local people performing over a 5 hour period with time for an included lunch before the performance and evening meal during the interval.

With 2020 heralding the 42nd Passion Play. The shows in 2020 may seem distant, but the excitement and planning has already begun for the next production. Demand for tickets is high and space on this trip is limited.
