Globus family of brands is inviting travellers to experience one of the most unique of Europe’s rich traditions, the Oberammergau Passion Play which takes place once a decade in the Alpine German town of Oberammergau.
With the 2020 edition fast-approaching, Globus family of brands has introduced three different travel styles and 14 itineraries priced from AUD$2,689 offering travellers supreme reserved seating and accommodation in the heart of Oberammergau.
Globus family of brands interim Managing Director Peter Douglas said with multiple itineraries, touring options and price points available from Globus, Cosmos and Avalon Waterways, travellers will be able to enjoy unparalleled experiences rich in tradition and Oberammergau’s unique history.
“An opportunity that arises once every ten years, is an opportunity not to be missed. Just like the seats of the Passion Play theatre, our Oberammergau 2020 tours are filling up quickly. Don’t wait to reserve a spot, renew faith and quite simply, have a great time – the encore won’t be until 2030,” said Mr Douglas.
A theatrical tradition in Oberammergau, Germany since 1634, the uplifting Passion Play is performed only once a decade in this quaint Bavarian village. While two thousand actors, singers and musicians are preparing for their roles in this famous reenactment of the crucifixion of Christ, seats are selling quickly in anticipation of their moving performance.
The 42nd edition of the play will premiere on 16 May with performances through till 4 October, 2020 and runs for eight hours, including a three-hour intermission for dinner. Despite the play being spoken in German, with no English translations, the village expects approximately 450,000 visitors, over half of which will be international guests.
Whether travellers choose a Globus holiday, a Cosmos getaway or an Avalon Waterways river cruise, these special itineraries include accommodation in the heart of Oberammergau at the Romanthik Hotel and a dedicated office in this historic hamlet to help travellers make the most of their stay.
