The world-famous Oberammergau Passion Play is performed by the locals of Oberammergau in Germany just once a decade. In 1634, the Black Plague devastated Europe’s population. Oberammergau remained untouched until a homesick villager returned one night, unknowingly bringing with him the dreaded plague. Almost 100 villagers died as a result. Frightened survivors vowed that if God saved them from the plague, once every 10 years, they would reenact the agony and crucifixion of Christ. From then on, there were no further deaths from the plague, and the villagers have fulfilled their pledge ever since.

In 2020, join the Globus family of brands to watch this spectacular event that only happens once every 10 years! Globus guests will enjoy first-class seating and accommodation is at the historic Boeld Hotel, conveniently located in the heart of Oberammergau. The play will run from May through to October and runs for 8 hrs, including a 3-hour intermission for dinner. The play is spoken in German, with no English translations. 

Book now! If you miss the Passion Play this time, you’ll have to wait until 2030 for another chance to see this once in a decade event.
