Two Great Tours offered for the 42nd Performance of the Passion Play in Obergammerau 2020!
Prepare now to attend the 42nd Performance of the world's most famous Passion Play, held just once a decade in the tiny village of Oberammergau in the Bavarian Alps. Choose from two Edventures: a nine-day tour that takes travelers to Venice, Munich and the Austrian Alps; or a two-week tour to Munich, the Swiss Alps and Paris!
The Passion Play in Oberammergau, a small village located in the Bavarian Alps of Germany, began almost 500 years ago with a promise made to God by its citizens. If God spared them from the devastating plague that was decimating Europe at the time, they would forever perform the Passion of Christ for all who would visit the village to see it. In the month following the promise, just one person succumbed to the Black Death, after thousands had died in the surrounding region during the month preceding the promise. The residents of this tiny town viewed this as a miracle and an answer to their prayer, and the residents of Oberammergau have kept their promise uninterrupted for almost 400 years, performing the Passion Play every decade from May to October.
As with all World Edventures Tours, your price includes everything you need for a hassle-free Edventure: round-trip airfare from a nearby gateway, 7- or 11-nights (depending on tour selected) lodging in three-star hotels, breakfast daily, deluxe motorcoach travel and all on-tour transportation, overnight stay in Oberammergau and admission to the Passion Play, including all meals that day, select admission to other attractions on tour with priority entry, beer and wine with any dinners provided on tour, multilingual tour guides, full-time tour coordinator and more. And Correctional/Law Enforcement Officials (only) will have an opportunity to tour Stadelheim Prison in Munich, or La Sante Prison in Paris. Travel on any of the Oberammergau tours for the Passion Play must be booked by November 30, 2019.
