Oberammergau Passion Play 2020

There are few experiences in the world that are truly unique, unforgettable and without parallel, and the Oberammergau Passion Play is certainly one of them.  And so you don’t miss out on this theatrical event - which only happens every ten years and tickets are limited - now’s the time to register your interest.

The story dates back to 1633, when the Great Plague descended on a tiny Alpine village in Bavaria. Many died, but when hope was almost gone, the villagers solemnly vowed that if those who still lived were spared, they would enact a play depicting Christ’s suffering, death and resurrection.

Miraculously, the Plague took no more lives and true to their vow, the villagers enacted their first play in 1634 and have done so ever since, through war and peace, every ten years.

Don’t miss out!
