Following the Oberammergau Pilgrimage

What is the Oberammergau Passion Play?

It’s the longest-running play in the world and the largest amateur stage theater in the world.  The people of Oberammergau vowed in 1633 that if God spared them from the plague, they would stage a play every year (later they changed it to every ten years) devoted to the life and crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Soon after, the death rate declined sharply and the villagers kept their promise.  The first Passion Play was at Pentecost in 1634.  Nearly half of the population of Oberammergau still participates.  People must be born in Oberammergau or have resided there for at least 20 years in order to participate.

The Passion Play brings to life Jesus’ Passion, covering his visit to Jerusalem to his crucifixion, and tells the story of his suffering, death, and resurrection. The play was written based on manuscripts dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries.

What is the Switzerland Extension?

Journey through the Alps of Switzerland including Liechtenstein along the way!  We will visit one of the oldest surviving libraries in Europe, The Fraumunster (dating from the 13th century with stained glass windows by Marc Chagall), Rhine Falls (the largest waterfall in Europe), the 12th century village of Lucerne, take a Cog Wheel Train Ride, and so much more! We will celebrate Mass on each day of the Extension as well.
