Oberammergauer Passionsspiele - 2022
Nearly 400 years ago the history of the Passion Play began. The plague raged in many parts of Europe and did not spare Oberammergau either.
In 1633 the Oberammergau villagers promised to perform the suffering, death and resurrection of Christ every tenth year, in so far as no one was to die of the plague anymore. The villagers were answered by God and therefore in 1634 the first Passion Play took place. The promise has been kept until today. From May 16th to October 4th 2020 the 42nd Passion Play will take place in Oberammergau.
Zurich is the nearest international airport from Oberammergau, where the Passion Play takes place. Fly in from the USA to Zürich on the first day. After staying in Hotel Alexander to sleep in the jet leg, you can reach Oberammergau in 4 hours easily by train. Or how about a European trip and passing our beautiful Zürich? Last year we celebrated 500 years of reformation with a lot of intersting events.
If you book a room in Hotel Alexander and show as the entrace ticket for the Passion Play you get 10% discount on the room rate booked.
