Nearly 400 years ago the history of the Passion Play began. The plague raged in many parts of Europe and did not spare Oberammergau either.

In 1633 the Oberammergau villagers promised to perform the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ every tenth year, in so far as no one was to die of the plague anymore. The villagers were answered by God and therefore in 1634 the first Passion Play took place. The promise has been kept until today. From May 16th to October 4th 2020 the 42nd Passion Play will take place in Oberammergau.

Yes – It's 2 years away – but you must plan now! Why should you go? Judy paints the picture of the years or preperation, dedication, faith, and grooming standards the actors must adhere too. Art and music lovers will also be drawn to this Passion Play.

There are many ways to see Oberammergau and the local area to include land tours, guided trips and river cruising! Judy talks about some of the options and why each is unique and the benefits of doing each one.

Enjoy and if you travel to Oberammergau, please provide us some stories on your experience!
