In 1633, the residents of the beautiful Bavarian village of Oberammergau made a vow, that if God would spare them from the plague which was ravaging Europe they would produce a play thereafter for all time depicting the life and death of Jesus Christ.
Join us for a once in a lifetime experience and witness the world-famous Passion Play!
In the midst of the 17th century, after months of suffering and death from the plague, the residents of Oberammergau made a solemn vow that they would perform a "Play of Suffering, Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ" every 10 years if God would spare them from any more deaths. Miraculously, the plague took no more lives in the village. True to their word, the villages performed their first play in 1634 and have continued to do so every 10 years ever since.
The performance now takes place every 10 years, between May and September, in a spectacular open air theatre with the Bavarian mountains as a natural backdrop, with a cast of over 2,000 local people performing over a 5 hour period. With 2020 heralding the 42nd Passion Play this is a special event not to be missed!
