|Oberammergau Passion Play|
Once again, the familiar story of Jesus of Nazareth will be retold by the residents of Oberammergau. This is truly a community event as nearly half of the villagers will come together on the stage of the Passion Play. To many of them, the oath of their forefathers represents the beginning of a great theatrical tradition. To others, it is a legacy, a solemn duty.
TourMagination is holding space in Oberammergau at the beautiful Hotel Turmwirt. The hotel owner/operator, George Glas, has reserved first-class seats for the Passion Play for our tour participants.

Each TourMagination tour will have a focus, either within Europe or other countries close by. The Passion Play will be integrated into the tour schedule. The play involves 1100 amateur actors drawn from the local population. It lasts an entire day. The tradition derives from a vow made by the inhabitants of Oberammergau in 1633, after a plague when their village was spared from death. Join one of TourMagination's tours to see the Oberammergau Passion Play.
