Oberammergau Passion Play &

AMA Waterways Danube River Cruise

June 30 - July 11, 2022

     

 

2022 Passion Play in Oberammergau, Germany and a 7-Night River Cruise with AmaWaterways! 

In 1633, the residents of Oberammergau, Germany vowed that if God spared them from the bubonic plague ravaging the region, they would produce a play thereafter for all time depicting the life and death of Jesus.  Once their town had been spared, they kept their vow beginning with the first play in 1634. 

The next performance is scheduled for 2022.  The production involves over 2,000 performers, musicians and stage hands, all of which either were born in the city or have resided there for at least 20 years.  Please join us for this once-in-a-decade event.
