Oberammergau 2020: Budapest, Austria and The Swiss Alps (14 Days)

In 1633, the residents of this tiny village in the Alps  made a promise to God to produce a play about the life, death and resurrection 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 1634, the residents of Oberammergau have performed their play on open-air stages each decade for 400 years. Visit the 42nd presentation of the Passion Play, along with travel from Budapest, through Austria, Germany and Switzerland. This Edventure is not to be missed!
