Oberammergau Passion Play History – 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. As early as 1631, infectious diseases spread in Swabia as well as in Bavaria. This village was spared by dutiful vigilance until the church festival in 1632, when a man named Kaspar Schisler brought the plague into the village. Faced with the great distress that the terrible illness inflicted upon the population, the leaders of the community came together and pledged to hold a passion tragedy once every ten years.

From this day forward, not a single person perished, even though a great number of them still showed signs of the plague”.

Oberammergau Passion Play Today – More than 2000 participants bring the story of Jesus of Nazareth to the impressive open-air stage of the Passion Play Theatre. Almost half of Oberammergau’s population will devotedly act out the story of the man whose tidings for more than 2000 years have brought hope and power of life to an incredible number of people.

They will play it from his entry into Jerusalem until his death at the cross and his resurrection.

All this against the backdrop of the words of the evangelist Luke at
the end of his description of the tale of suffering: “And all the crowds that had assembled for this spectacle, when they saw what had taken place, returned home beating their breasts.” (Lk 23,48)

Oberammergau Passion Play Germany Tour & Holy Land Tour 

Picture yourself sailing in a boat like the disciples on the Sea of Galilee (And Jesus said to them, follow me and I will make you become fishers of menMark 1:17), floating in the Dead Sea, seeing our Lord Jesusbirth place in Bethlehem, walking the streets of Jerusalem and having communion at the empty tomb where Jesus rose from the dead (He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he layMatthew 26:6). At the end of this tour two things will most certainly be changed, you, and your understanding of the Bible.

After our tour of the Holy Land we travel to Germany where we will attend the Oberammergau Passion Play! In 1633, in the quaint Bavarian town of Oberammergau, gripped by war, poverty and plague, the villagers of Oberammergau vowed to put on a ‘passion play’ every ten years if their village was spared. They survived, and performed the very first Oberammergau Passion Play in 1634. Ever since, their descendants have carried out this pledge, giving you the opportunity to attend this unique experience in 2022 (postponed from 2020).

We invite you to join us on this life changing tour.
