In the far south of Germany, in the province of Garmisch-Partenkirchen on the Austrian border, lies the unassuming, yet disarmingly charming town of Oberammergau. Surrounded by green countryside and the steep valley hills, Oberammergau is very much a classic town for this region, quietly existing in this idyllic green setting.

Once every ten years however, this sleepy town comes alive with the performances of the world-famous Oberammergau Passion Play. For the last 376 years, barring a break for the Second World War, this play takes over Oberammergau as over two thousand townspeople produce a heart-wrenching epic detailing the Passion of Christ and his final days. Across the summer, hundreds of thousands of visitors flock to the town for the play, which is split into two halves each lasting two and a half hours each.

“Well organised and good variety of tours and experiences. Obviously the Passion Play was a highlight. We wouldn’t have considered Bavaria we’re or not for the play feature. We’d recommend this area spine as it was so beautiful, clean, picturesque and beautiful.
