Imperial Cities Tour with Oberammergau Passion Play
featuring Budapest, Vienna & Prague
May 13 — May 23, 2020 • 11 Days • 16 Meals
In 2020 the Museum is traveling to Budapest, Vienna, Prague and Germany. Experience the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play. The Museum has partnered with Collette to secure tickets to the world-famous staging of the final days of Jesus’s life.
The original performance dates back to 1634. During the Thirty Year War, Oberammergau was spared the Black Plague and for this reason, the citizens vowed that every ten years they would give a play to honor the last days of the life of Christ. The performers of this once-in-a-decade event are all native to the village. To lend authenticity to the performance, the cast starts to grow their hair and beards more than a year in advance. During a break in the performance, join your fellow travelers for dinner before returning for the remainder of your Passion Play performance.
