Oberammergau - Passion Play

This is truly a must see event! This once in a decade performance played by the villagers depicts the life and death of Jesus. In 1633, the residents vowed that if God spared them from the bubonic plague that was ravaging the region they would produce a play thereafter for all time every 10 years. Witness the 42nd Passion play and explore some magnificent sites in Germany and Austria too.
