The Passion Play of Oberammergau, Germany
A play of life and death, promised in a moment of mortal threat - so the history of the Oberammergau Passion Play began in 1633.
Maintained and experienced almost without interruption for over 380 years, the tradition of performing the play about the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ every ten years will be continued for the 42nd time in 2020 and is regarded as the most important passion play in the world.
The village at the edge of the Bavarian Alps in Germany expects approximately 500,000 visitors for the passion play, over half of which will be international guests.Please call us on

The Oberammergau Story
Nearly 400 years ago in Germany 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. In 2020 the 42nd Passion Play will take place in Oberammergau.
