About the Oberammergau Passion Play
Since 1634, the most famous Passion Play in the World has been presented every 10 years in Oberammergau, Germany. The worldwide virus pandemic of 2020 forced the Play organizers to move the production to 2022 – only the 4th time in almost 400 years that the Play has been canceled or postponed. A special law is in effect to ensure that all actors of the world’s largest amateur dramatic performance come from the village. All participants, from actors playing the big speaking parts such as Jesus, Mary or Judas, through members of the choir, orchestra members, firemen and ushers, must have been born in Oberammergau or lived there for at least 20 years.
EO invites you to join us, and an estimated 450,000 visitors from around the world, in the small village of Oberammergau for this special Play season. You will experience the world’s largest dramatic and musical Passion Play in the beautiful Bavaria and Tyrol regions of Germany and Austria.
