Dating back almost 400 years, the Oberammergau passion play came about following a vow made in 1633, when the German village of Oberammergau was in the terrifying grip of the Great Plague. If their village was spared, the villagers promised to re-enact the Passion of the Christ every 10 years and in 2020 the village is making preparations for the 42nd performance.  An estimated 500,000 people are expected to visit Oberammergau in 2020 to watch history taking place and you could be one of them.  Don’t miss out on this once-a-decade opportunity to see one of the most important plays in the world and explore the breath-taking Austrian Alps as you go.
