Alpine Wonders & Passion Play
September 12 - 20, 2022
Join me for a 9 Day Oberammergau Passion Play & Alpine Wonders Tour.
The tour includes stops in Innsbruck and Salzburg as well as leisure days or optional excursions.
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 play will next be performed in 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.
Prices starting at $4,698 includes roundtrip international airfare fom New York, guided sightseeing tours as outlined in brochure, breakfast and dinner, deluxe motorcoaches, Passion Play ticket, first class hotels and much more!
