Oberammergau & Black Forest

Door to Door Service

The village at the edge of the Bavarian Alps expects to attract more than 500,000 visitors to witness the play of life and death, promised in a moment of mortal threat - so began the history of the Oberammergau Passion Play in 1633. In the middle of the Thirty Years War, after months of suffering and death from the plague, the Oberammergauers swore an oath that they would perform the "Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ" every ten years. At Pentecost 1634, they fulfilled their pledge for the first time on a stage they put up in the cemetery above the fresh graves of the plague victims. In the year 2020, the Community of Oberammergau will perform the Passion Play, they have preserved throughout the centuries with singular continuity, for the 42nd time. All participants of the world's largest amateur dramatic performance come from the village, since a special play law is in effect which says that all participants, must have been born in Oberammergau or lived there for at least 20 years
