We are planning a trip to the world famous Oberammergau Passion Play June 8-19, 2020.

Since 1634, the most famous Passion Play in the world has taken place in Oberammergau. After the Black Plague, rampant in Europe, left their small village the grateful people of Oberammergau promised God that they would show their gratitude by putting on a Passion Play.

The tradition of putting on the play about the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ every ten years, has continued almost without interruption for over 380 years. The tradition will be continued for the 42nd time in 2020. It is regarded as the most important Passion Play in the world. The village, at the edge of the Bavarian Alps, expects approximately 500,000 visitors for the passion play, over half of which will be international guests.

The 12-day trip will include a river cruise on the Danube River with opportunities to do sightseeing in Munich, Neushwanstein, Vilshofen, Passau – Germany; Innsbruck, Linz, Weissenkirchen, Durnstein and Vienna – Austria; Bratislava – Slovakia and finally in Budapest – Hungary.
