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 — including on three itineraries on the inaugural season of the 5-star Ocean Odyssey! 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 the best seats for you!
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 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.
Join us for the opportunity to take part in this 380-year tradition with some of the best seats — and the opportunity to experience village life through authentic cultural connections — as only Vantage can provide.
