Once every ten years, as each new decade begins, some 2,000 local residents of the little Bavarian village of Oberammergau join forces to perform the Passionsspiele (Passion Play), a dramatic re-creation of Jesus Christ’s last days on Earth. First produced nearly four centuries ago, Germany’s world-famous Oberammergau Passion Play has become a beloved highlight of every decade… and being there in person to see it unfold in 2020 with Tauck will be an experience you’ll remember for a lifetime!
