Oberammergau…where passion lives on forever.
Preparations are already underway for the next Passion Play in the tiny Bavarian hamlet of Oberammergau. The shows in 2020 may seem distant but the excitement is already building for the next production. Demand for tickets is sure to be high and space on tours at a premium.
Back in 2010 Collette brought thousands of guests to Germany to enjoy this once-in-a-decade event. Building on years of experience, our team is hard at work developing new tours that showcase must-see European destinations and the epic Passion Play that depicts the life and death of Jesus.
It began all the way back in 1633
Oberammergau was suffering from the Bubonic Plague. The surviving villagers appealed for Divine intervention to save their families. They vowed that if God were to spare them, they would perform a Passion Play every ten years. They say not a single person fell victim to the Plague after that. Keeping their promise, the people of Oberammergau performed the first play in 1634 and have continued to do so throughout the centuries.
Today, many of Oberammergau's residents still take part in this powerful work of art featuring dramatic performances, beautiful music and choral accompaniment.
The residents of Oberammergau will again perform The Passion Play in 2020. Collette will be there, sharing in the magnificence of this performance with several itineraries that showcase the charm and beauty of central Europe. Will you be there?
