Oberammergau 2020 – An adventure in theatre, culture and the Bavarian Alps
Once every ten years, an unassuming village of Oberammergau in the heart of the Bavarian Alps hosts an event that draws in hundreds of thousands. The moving re-enactment of Christ's crucifixion and subsequent resurrection, known as the Passion Play, is a five-hour epic - a tragedy of death and the promise of life. Every decade, people of all creeds join together to experience this inspirational story and enchanting expression of cultural heritage.
As the Oberammergau Passion Play only happens once every decade, planning ahead for the next spectacle in Oberammergau is essential. Great Rail Journeys has planned a number of holidays in 2020 to take you to Oberammergau by train, which are filling fast and some departures already completely sold out. Combine the wonderful and truly memorable Passion Play with a holiday in Italy, Bavaria or Austria visiting lakes, cities and mountain retreats.
