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 Vantage’s exciting Passion Play optional extensions to Oberammergau. Due to the current global state of affairs, this once-in-a-decade event has been rescheduled from 2020 to 2022 — and we’ve secured your seats! We’re thrilled to announce that these extensions are featured on five itineraries aboard the 5-star Ocean Odyssey or Ocean Explorer, including:
Also featuring discoveries in Munich, the 2022 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 during performances of the Passion Play, or legendary Passionsspiele. Recreating the last days of Christ in fascinating accuracy and poignancy, this unmissable extravaganza has been staged since 1634 by almost all of the villagers in this postcard-perfect prefecture, first as an act of faith in the midst of war and plague, and now as a cultural tradition that draws thousands from near and far once every decade.
Join us for the chance to take part in this 380-year tradition, with fantastic seats and the opportunity to experience village life through authentic cultural connections — as only Vantage can provide.
