Oberammergau

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.

“Aged eighty, the C19-postponed booking for this once-in-a-lifetime journey stayed in the background through all the ups and downs of the last years, knowing that GRJ would somehow keep faith, and their promise, to get us to the Passion Play in 2022. Physically, it was absolutely as demanding as I expected, but everything that could be done for our security and comfort in the post-Brexit world was dealt with by our remarkable tour guide, whose calm, efficiency and kindness in the face of rail disruption, unexpected delays [including my own last-minute arrival for an urgent bus departure] and the sheer novelty of being able to travel for pleasure, were with us all the way.
