Collette’s comprehensive suite of tours featuring the 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play includes: Imperial Cities, Austrian Delight, Classic Danube River Cruise, Discover Switzerland, Austria & Bavaria, and Alpine Explorer & Glacier Express Train.
The much-loved itineraries of these classics favourites are complemented by the chance to experience one of Germany’s oldest cultural treasures, the Oberammergau Passion Play. These tours will follow their established itineraries before finishing up in the charming village of Oberammergau, nestled in the Bavarian Alps, where travellers will bear witness to this spectacular performance.
Oberammergau’s devout villagers first performed this play in 1634 in the hope that they would be spared the devastating effects of the Black Death plague which was decimating Europe. Miraculously, the villagers survived the pandemic and as a token of their thanks to God, they have continued to perform their passion play every 10 years ever since. Profits from the show are reinvested in the village, enabling it to provide the services and infrastructure necessary for future generations to experience the marvels of this colourful show.
