The Oberammergau Passion Play is showing in 2022! Here is your chance to witness this incredible event.
August 16-25, 2022 Prestige Tour
This popular event was cancelled in 2020 but is now performing in 2022! If you want to go, make your reservation very soon as space is very limited! If you missed it in 2020, here's your chance to witness this incredible event with Allied Tours and Mayflower Tours. It won't return until 2030!
In 1633, the villagers, of the small Bavarian town of Oberammergau, suffered devastating losses to the Bubonic Plague. Those survivors appealed for Divine Intervention for their families, vowing to God they would perform the Passion Play every ten years if they were spared. Still today, the residents host thousands of travelers as they depict the life and death of Jesus, once a decade.
