Oberammergau 2020: Munich, The Swiss Alps and Paris (13 Days)

In 1634, the residents of the tiny village in the Bavarian Alps made a promise to God to produce a play about the life and death of Jesus if He saved their town from the ravages of Europe's Black Plague. The following month, the death toll dropped to just one afflicted person. Since then, the residents of Oberammergau have performed their play on open-air stages for 380 years. This Edventure takes travelers to the 42nd presentation of the Passion Play, as well as to Munich, Lucerne and Bern, and magnificent Paris! This Edventure should be on every bucket list!
