The history of the Passion Play began nearly 400 years ago. Devastated by the plague that swept through Europe the villagers of Oberammergau vowed to perform the Passion Play every ten years if they were spared. True to their word, as an expression of repentance they have been performing this once-a-decade play depicting the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ since 1633.
Join us in 2020 and witness firsthand this magnificent performance.
