Oberammergau Passion Play
Please see our Coronavirus page for updates on the current situation.
Looking for a short tour to the Oberammergau Passion Play? This short fully-escorted tour includes two nights in Munich and two nights in Oberammergau, so it fits in well with other European travel. Munich is an ideal hub for trains and flights and we can assist you with pre- and post-travel.
This fully-escorted package includes:
Day 1: Sunday, July 5, 2020: Munich
Upon arrival at the Munich airport we will transfer to our hotel. We will meet the rest of the group in the early evening and dine together in a traditional beer hall. (IF/D)
Day 2: Monday, July 6, 2020: Oberammergau
This morning our first stop will be Neuschwanstein Castle, the most famous of King Ludwig’s royal castles. Perched majestically on a mountainside, this was his fantasy of a medieval fortress and is often referred to as the “Disney Castle.” Then we will continue on to scenic Linderhof Palace, based on the Petit Trianon Palace at Versailles. This is the smallest of King Ludwig’s palaces and the only one that he saw completed. We will explore the grotto in the garden before we continue to our hotel in Oberammergau. Once settled in our hotel, we will have dinner together with free time in the evening! (B/D)
Day 3: Tuesday, July 7, 2020: Oberammergau
Today will be the highlight of the tour, the world-famous Passion Play. This play has been performed by the townsfolk since their ancestors made a promise to God to save the village in 1634. All the performers were either born in the town or have resided there for over 20 years. There will be time this morning to visit the wood-carvers, painters, and other shops and galleries in town. In the afternoon and evening we will watch the performance of the play, with excellent, pre-reserved seats. (B/L/D)
Day 4: Wednesday, July 8, 2020: Munich
After a leisurely breakfast, we will return to Munich. In the afternoon we will explore the city of Gemühtlichkeit. A local guide will acquaint us with the sights of Bavaria’s fun-loving capital! We will see the Olympic grounds, the Residenz Palace, the elegant Maximilian Strasse and more. The evening is at leisure. (B)
Day 5: Thursday, July 9, 2020: Return
This morning we will transfer to the airport for our return flight home. (B/IF)
