Oberammergau is now rescheduled for 2022

Combine your trip to Oberammergau with a visit to some of the world’s most breathtaking scenery in the Austrian Lakes !

A vow to God, made by locals in the wake of the Plague in 1633, still influences the lives of the villagers today. The villagers of Oberammergau asked God to protect the rest of their inhabitants from this terrible illness. Their prayers were heard and answered. The following year, the villagers performed a Passion Play out of gratitude for their survival. This powerful act of worship and devotion takes place every tenth year since. Join them in 2022 to see the fruits of this community’s labour and be a part of this sensational tribute to Our Lord.

Having enjoyed this cultural phenomenon, head to Austria and it’s sensational Lake District. This is a area of outstanding natural beauty as well as fascinating cities. Discover the romantic city of Salzburg, where Mozart was born. While strolling along the charming cobbled streets, enjoy the authenticity of the old town. Tour the beautiful lakes, including Mondsee, Attersee and Wolfgangsee. Take time to wander along the waterfront and enjoy the enchanting little lakeside towns.
