Oberammergau 2020: Historic Germany, with Prague (15 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 the Passion Play each decade. Following your visit the 42nd performance, travel through historic Germany, from the lively Bavarian capital of Munich, to romantic Bamburg, classical Dresden, and a reunified Berlin, and ending in the City of 100 Spires, Prague. This old world Edventure waits for you!
