A moving tradition only performed every ten years

Performed once per decade as a thank-offering for being spared the plague, in 2020 the villagers of Oberammergau are once again offering their moving Passion Play, now world-renowned. Combining this moving performance with five nights exploring the very scenic adjacent Austrian Alps, stay in St Gilgen by the Wolfgangsee, enjoying guided visits to the surrounding historic towns and scenic lakes.

Accompanying lecturer Professor Bridget Heal will give a series of enlightening lectures on religion, art and society in late-medieval and early modern Germany and Austria. A day will also be spent in the historic musical town of Salzburg, culminating in a Mozart dinner concert.

Highlights

  • Gain extra insight into the origins, context and later history of the play with accompanying lecturer Professor Bridget Heal, an expert in European religious culture and history
  • Enjoy Oberammergau for two days spending a full afternoon and evening at the play with 1st class tickets and uninterrupted views
  • Spend five nights in the beautiful adjacent Austrian Alps visiting the Salzkammergut Lake district, St Wolfgang and Salzburg
