Book Now

Tuesday 21st to Thursday 30th June 2022


Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Passion Play Committee announced on March 19, 2020 that they were postponing the play for 2020 and that they would reschedule the performance again in 2022.

So, once again, we are offering our fabulous nine night escorted tour combining five nights in the Swiss Alpine Resort of Davos with two nights in the village of Oberammergau


Spaces are always very limited for this powerful spectacle that only takes place every 10 years. 2022 marks the 42nd edition of this spectacular event, which dates back to 1634. This open-air stage performance takes place every 10 years in the Bavarian village of Oberammergau and honours the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The cast is made up entirely of Oberammergau residents with over 2,000 actors taking part, including around 500 children.      


So, join us, on our memorable adventure to the Oberammergau Passion Play 2022.


Our Tour:

Our tour features a 2 night stay in the Oberammergau area with an official Arrangement to include Category C accommodation (3 star hotel or 4 star guest house/pension) and Category 1 tickets to the Passion Play (the best category available).  Half board meals are included as well as a light lunch in Oberammergau before the play commences. 


Accommodation will be in Oberammergau or a nearby community such as Bad Bayersoien, Bad Kohlgrub, Ettal, Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Grainau, Murnau, Oberau, Ohlstadt, Saulgrub, Unterammergau and similar.  All are within easy reach of Oberammergau.


Following your 2 night stay in the Oberammergau area we travel on to the Swiss Alps for a 5 night half board stay in a 4 star hotel.  Excursions will include lakes, mountains and the delights of traditional Switzerland.


The Passion Play:

The world famous Oberammergau Passion Play dates from the 17th century when Bavaria was swept by a plague epidemic. In Oberammergau alone more than 80 lives were lost. The elders vowed if the village was purged of plague they would perform the 'Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ' every ten years. The epidemic came to a standstill, and in 1634 the villagers fulfilled their solemn promise for the first time. Ever since they have loyally kept their vow.


2022 will see the 42nd Passion Play season. The play follows the story of Christ's Passion, beginning with His entry into Jerusalem and ending with His Resurrection and Transfiguration.
