Experience the historical event on your next holiday

We have hand crafted a number of unique cultural tours to make the most of your experience with the Passion Play. Tickets are included in all tours.

In 1632, The Black Plague was on the cusp of a little town in Germany called Oberammergau.  The people of Oberammergau made a vow to God that if he spared their town from the inevitable plague they would regularly perform the Passion Play as a sign of repentance.  After this pledge, no one died, so the first Passion Play was staged in 1634.   Now every decade, the play is performed in this town and transforms the whole village.  As you can imagine, the Oberammergau Passion Play experience is on many travellers' bucket-list.

Here’s a fantastic opportunity for independent travellers to attend the once-a-decade renowned Oberammergau Passion Play. The play itself is a powerful and deeply moving religious experience. There is a rich 400-year history surrounding the small village in Bavaria fulfilling the vow to God to perform the Passion Play.  Our tour is designed to help us better appreciate this context and join in our thanks to those offered by all the generations that have gone before us. This tour also takes advantage of the European spring and summer season, with the beauty and warm weather.  There’ll be plenty of time to enjoy some of the great German-speaking cities of central Europe – Berlin, Dresden and Vienna; experiencing the life, culture, religion and history of these cities.
