Oberammergau Passion Play 2020


The Promise. It was during the Thirty Years War that the deadly and contagious disease known as the Black Plague broke out. Before it ran its course, it struck down one in every three persons throughout Europe, and left in its wake untold misery, panic and hunger. But one little village in the south of Germany was spared; Oberammergau. The townspeople of Oberammergau made a vow that if they were spared, they would give a play of the life of Christ every ten years. The fact they were saved is one of the most amazing mysteries in history. Thus, the first Passion Play took place in 1634. For the Oberammergauers, the Play is a labor of love. Their vow is still the most important thing in their lives, and with great pride. Read more about the tours we offer for the Oberammergau 2020 Tour.
