Oberammergau Passion PlayIt's difficult to think of a more sought-after spectacle in the Alps than the famous Oberammergau Passion Play. These live performances take place an hour outside of Munich in a charming Bavarian town and depict, in a highly detailed and extravagant manner, the story of Jesus Christ—once every ten years. Since 1634, Oberammergau residents have portrayed the Son of God’s suffering at the town’s modern theater, which can hold more than 4,700 people. The next production begins in 2020 and includes 102 shows; tickets go on sale in March 2018.
