Premiered in 1634, five hours running time, 109 performances, and 530,000 visitors from around the world - that's the basic statistics of the world's most famous passion play in Oberammergau, Bavaria. The tradition of a play about the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ every ten years, will be continued for the 42nd time in 2022.

Admission fees have been first charged in 1790, and packaged tours are offered by tour operators since 1870. About half of the visitors are international guests. Not only VIPs, royals, and celebrities have seen the passion play, but hundreds of thousands of tourists and pilgrims. No wonder, the Oberammergau passion play is the most important event for tourism in Germany.

But did you know that there are many more passion plays in Europe?
Shortly after Oberammergau will welcome visitors for the Passion Play 2022, Erl follows in 2025. Make a Passion Play an ongoing part of your travel programs!
