Oberammergau is now rescheduled for 2022

Following your cultural excursion to the Oberammergau Passion Play in 2022, head to the stunning Rhine Valley.  Both the Rhine and Moselle Valleys are charmed by vine-clad slopes, wonderful wines and picturesque towns. It’s little wonder that the Rhine and Moselle Valleys are among Germany’s most popular tourist destinations! Perhaps enjoy cruises along the Rhine and Moselle rivers, perhaps passing the Loreley. Why not learn about her legend?

Explore the wonderful town of Boppard with its picturesque promenade and visit Rüdesheim with its pretty buildings. Wander along the Drosselgasse, known for its lively bars and restaurants. Perhaps enjoy a ride in the cable car, up over the vineyards for views of the Rhine weaving its way through the valley. You can also enjoy the equally beautiful Moselle Valley, with an excursion to Cochem.  In Cochem, a dramatic castle perches over the town overlooking the tangle of streets.  The pastel building lined waterways encapsulate the Moselle Valley’s beauty.  Once you’re here, you can easily explore many of the area’s beautiful riverside town.  Equally, you can take to the air.  Ascend over the valley on a cable car and take in the magnificent panoramic views.

After celebrating the life and sacrifice of Our Lord at the Oberammergau Passion Play, venturing to this area of exceptional natural beauty is a delight. Enjoy this splendid creation and the serenity of life along the river.

Back to the Passion Play!
