Background

The history of the Passion Play Oberammergau tracks back nearly 400 years ago, when a plague raged many parts of Europe including Oberammergau in Germany. In 1633, the Oberammergau villagers pledged to perform a play describing the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ every 10 years, if their prayers will be answered and no one died of the plague anymore. Their prayer was answered, and the plague stopped.

The first Passion Play took place in 1634 and it has been kept on until today. The 42nd Passion Play will take place at Oberammergau, Germany from May 16 to October 4, 2020.

Early planning is crucial, as the demand for Passion play tickets will exceed the supply in the 4 and half months window (May 16 to Oct. 4). If you miss it now, it will take another decade before the next Passion play show at Oberammergau will be available again.

PRICES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE, BASED ON 2018 PUBLISHED FARES WITH ESTIMATED INCREASE AND BASED ON AVAILABILITY.

Reservations

As tickets to the Passion Play are limited due a short four months of performance, reservations will be based on availability. Early booking of groups and individuals with a deposit will secure your place on a group. Call us for current availability.

Air Tickets

Airline tickets are published on the reservation system 11 months prior travel dates. As we are now almost two years before travel dates, the air ticket contracts are not available yet. These contracts will be available mid to end of 2019. As soon as they are published, prices and travel dates will be secured and final.

The Passion Play will draw over 4,500 additional travelers per day to Europe during the 4 months of performance. That will put an additional load on airline capacity, which will definitely cause prices to increase.

Estimated Prices

Trip package cost is estimated based on 2018 published fares with an expected increase. Land costs and Passion Play tickets are published and have a good estimation. Airline tickets will be published only 11 months prior departure date and by then the tour cost can be final.

At this point we can quote the land portion based on published fares and estimate the air costs. Prices are per person in double occupancy. All prices include the Passion Play package.

Not including: carrier surcharges, port charges (for cruises), tips, optional insurance, drinks, meals not mentioned and items of personal nature. Prices are based on 4-star hotels with Breakfast and Dinner daily.
