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.
Garmisch-Partenkirchen Fest Weeks
Unfortunately due to Coronavirus these events have been cancelled. However, put it on your list for 2021. Two big highlights of the summer season are local festweeks in July and August. It’s like stepping back in time and experiencing an authentic Bavarian festival.
Unfortunately, due to Coronavirus Oktoberfest 2020 has been canceled. Make sure you don't miss it in 2021. It doesn’t get more Bavarian than this.
