What you can expect
The Oberammergau Passion Play has been postponed, for only the fourth time in its 400 year history, due to the Coronavirus outbreak. We will be rescheduling our tour for late May / early June 2022 as soon as dates become available; the dates shown on our website are our proposed dates but are subject to confirmation by the play authorities and should be confirmed by the end of April 2020. Please do get in touch if you wouold like to be kept informed.
A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the famous Oberammergau Passion Play, taking time to enjoy the journey and to savour the experience. Our route passes many interesting and historic places in France and Germany and is truly a voyage of discovery. Tickets to the play in the highest category of seats are included (worth almost £200). 13 nights' accommodation, 1 breakfast not included (on ferry outbound), 9 evening meals included.
Every ten years since 1634 the inhabitants of this small Bavarian village have performed a Passion Play, based around the events surrounding the death of Christ, to give thanks for being spared from the Black Death. The whole village is involved and the participants must all have been born in Oberammergau - but this is far from an amateur production, rather one of the highest quality. We rode this route in 2010, the last time the play was performed. Whether you wish to visit for religious reasons, or to see one the most historic cultural events in Europe, or to re-create the happenings in Jerome K Jerome's 'Three Men on a Pilgrimage', this is an event you will always remember. The route takes you north of Paris then across France to the southern Vosges, via Verdun, and into Germany passing the source of the Danube, Lake Constance and finally to the little village near the famous ski resort of Garmsich-Partenkirken. A true journey giving a real reason to travel. 12 days cycling. Not to be missed, this is why travel was invented!
