In the small Bavarian Village of Oberammergau preparations are under way for the travel event of the decade. Visitors from around the world will soon arrive to witness the tradition of the Passion Play.
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 Passion 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 2022. Guidepost Tours can take you there, sharing in the magnificence of this performance with several itineraries that showcase the charm and beauty of central Europe. Will you be there?
