A promise. Living history. An experience...

January 2010


Gripped by war, poverty and plague, the villagers of Oberammergau, in Bavaria, southern Germany, vowed to put on a “Passion Play” every ten years. That was back in 1633. They survived, and performed the 1st Oberammergau Passion Play in 1634. Ever since, for the past four centuries, their descendants have carried out that pledge.

 

Only villagers have been allowed to take part. And that is what will happen yet again in 2010. About half the inhabitants of Oberammergau take part in the once-a-decade Passion Play. This means that over 2.000 villagers will bring the story of Jesus of Nazareth to life for the audiences that flock in from around the world. All performers are laymen and pursue their usual careers as wood carvers, house wives and so forth. In real life for instance Jesus is a psychologist and Mary Magdalene works as a flight attendant. By taking on their roles in the Passion Play, they are fulfilling the promise to God made by their ancestors, celebrating their faith and sharing it with the world.

 

The play starts with Jesus entering Jerusalem, continues with his death on the cross and finishes with the resurrection. As ever, this is an extraordinary community enterprise. The play starts at 2.30 pm and, including a three-hour intermission, ends at 10:30 pm. The 102 performances take place between May 15 and October 3, 2010.

 

Visitors from all over the world will take the opportunity to combine a visit to Oberammergau with its marvellous buildings and fascinating surroundings (some of the most famous Bavarian churches and castles can be found in the area) with an once-in-a-lifetime trip through Europe.

 

Compass Tours Incoming / Top Tours Travel is offering packages for performances in 13 different accommodation categories. Having been operated out of Munich since 1974, the company also offers a wide variety of specially designed leisure tours (such as Lutherland Germany, Southern Europe, etc) that can be combined with a visit to the Passion Play. Special tours and customized standard tours are available on request.

 

Take advantage of Top Tours Travels in-depth knowledge of the area and their well-trained staff when organizing your group travel arrangements.
