OBERAMMERGAU PASSION PLAY
JUST ONCE EVERY 10 YEARS! RESERVE NOW FOR THIS EXCLUSIVE EXPERIENCE
No matter what your religious persuasion, the pageantry and traditions deep in the heart of Bavarian Germany are sure to enchant, enthrall, and inspire on exciting Passion Play optional extensions to Oberammergau. Also featuring discoveries in Munich, 2020 departures of two of our award-winning river cruises — Majestic Rivers of Europe featuring Oberammergau extension and Switzerland, the Heart of the Rhine & Moselle featuring Oberammergau extension — will offer the exclusive opportunity to visit this region for performances of the Passion Play, or legendary Passionsspiele. Re-creating the last days of Christ in fascinating accuracy and poignancy, this once-every-decade extravaganza has been staged since 1634 by almost all of the villagers in this post-card perfect prefecture, first as an act of faith in the midst of war and plague, now as a cultural tradition that draws thousands from near and far. Don’t miss out on some of the best seats, and the opportunity to experience village life through authentic cultural connections, as only Vantage can provide.

THE PASSION PLAY THEATER AND THE VANTAGE DIFFERENCE:
Admire views of mountainous Oberammergau, a charming village of just 5,100, renowned for its woodworking school and the artistic renderings thereof on the homes dotting the countryside.
Rather than seats spread throughout the outdoor theater like other travel companies, Vantage has secured the best choices altogether for premium views and a convivial group atmosphere. Not too close but just close enough to witness the stunning marvels that come from this once-every-10-year extravaganza, you’ll note each villager’s beard, live animals onstage, and admire the trained chorus of hundreds of colorfully clad residents set in an unforgettable outdoor theater offering the best acoustics. The theater has just 4,700 seats, so premium space is extremely limited and is first-come, first served for reservations.
Make your reservation now and experience this once-in-a-lifetime event on the following 2020 journeys — just call 1-800-322-6677!
