Oberammergau is a small town located approximately 60 miles from Munich. The town is beautiful, surrounded by majestic mountains and picturesque meadows. The village is known for woodcarving. There are dozens of woodcarver shops. The town is also famous for its Bavarian themes painted along side many of the homes and buildings.
What made the town famous, was its performance of the Passion of Christ every decade. It is believed that the Passion Play has been held every 10 years since 1634. A play of life and death of Jesus Christ, promised in a moment of mortal threat, and so began the history of the Oberammergau Passion Play in 1633. During that time, of the Thirty Years War the Black Plague was sweeping through Europe. The villagers of Oberammergau vowed they would perform the ‘Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ every ten years if God spared them from the plague ravaging the region. They performed the Passion of Christ every 10 years from that moment on. The town was spared, and it is amazing that they have been honoring this pledge from generation to generation.
The Passion Play performance follows Christ from His triumphant entry into Jerusalem through His Trial, Crucifixion, Resurrection, and Ascension.
The Passion Play Theatre is open, and the background of the mountains makes it an unforgettable scene. Passionsspiele Oberammergau
