Bavaria & The Oberammergau Passion Play

1st-5th July 2020

Your chance to experience this once in a decade experience of the powerfully moving re-enactment Oberammagau’s 42nd Passion Play of Jesus Christ’s crucifixion and resurrection performed by a cast of 2,000.

The village of Oberammergau is most famous as the location of the renowned Passion Play for the last 376 years. Once every ten years, this unassuming village in the heart of the Bavarian Alps hosts this event, which draws in hundreds of thousands of visitors. During the 17th century, Oberammergau, like much of Europe, was afflicted with the ‘Black Death’. As the town’s population dwindled, the local dignitaries vowed they would perform the ‘Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ’ every ten years if God spared them from the plague ravaging the region. And the play goes on…

 However, places are selling out far in advance of the first performance date, so if you have ever thought of going to see the Passion Play and would like to come with me, in a small group, in 2020 … then it is vital you book as soon as possible.

Set against the backdrop of the scenic Ammergau Valley the theatre has all the modern comforts you could want, such as under-floor heating, while on stage you watch a piece of living history, a tradition that has endured since 1633.

Then to enable us to fully process this powerful (and possibly cathartic) experience we will drive through the beautiful Bavarian villages to a selected Guesthouse for reflection time in the serene beauty of the “Sound of Music” mountains.
