2022 Passion Play

The Passion Play in Oberammergau is postponed to 2022. Devastated by the plague in 1633, the people of Oberammergau performed the first Passion Play in a profound expression of repentance, vowing that if they were spared, natives of the town would perform the play every ten years. The highly-sought event is regarded as the most important passion play in the world. From the scale of the 2,000-strong cast, which includes many of the Oberammergau residents, to the haunting set design and costumes, it’s truly the spectacle of a lifetime for attendees.


Octoberfest 2021

Unfortunately, due to Coronavirus Oktoberfest 2020 was canceled. There is no official announcement for Oktoberfest 2021. It doesn’t get more Bavarian than Oktoberfest. A gathering brimming with culture, beer, traditional bands and fun for your whole crew. Once they confirm Oktoberfest this year, we will put together our vacation packages including transportation to the fest. Rooms are available online to reserve this year if you want to ensure you have the chance to be a part of the fest if it happens.
