OBERAMMERGAU PASSION PLAY

Join Premier World Discovery for a once in a decade performance to see “Oberammergau Passion Play” In 1633, the residents of Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany, vowed that if God spared them from the bubonic plague ravaging the region, they would produce a play thereafter for all time every 10 years depicting the life and death of Jesus. The play was first performed in 1634. This is truly a must see event! Join us for this incredible event, plus some magnificent sites of Germany and Austria.
