2020 Passion Play
The history of the Oberammergau Passion Play begins in 1633. In the midst of the Thirty Years’ War, after months of suffering and dying from the plague, the people of Oberammergau pledged to act out the play of the suffering, death and resurrection of our Lord, Jesus Christ once every 10 years.
The small village will receive over a half million visitors to attend one of the 102 performances performed by the villagers. Maintained and experienced almost without interruption for over 380 years, the tradition of performing the play about the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ every ten years will be continued for the 42 nd time in 2020 and is regarded as the most important passion play in the world.
It is highly encouraged to purchase your tickets very soon. It will sell out in the next few weeks or months. We can make a hotel reservation for you at Edelweiss Lodge and Resort over the phone for the play dates May 16th to October 4th 2020.
