Over the decades, Collette has brought thousands of guests to Germany to enjoy this once-in-a-decade event. Collette will offer the same itineraries originally planned for 2020 now in 2022. Whether or not you had originally planned to attend in 2020, Collette is proud to show you the 2022 Passion Play and the best of this central European region. Oberammergau was suffering from the Bubonic Plague. The surviving villagers appealed for Divine intervention to save their families. They vowed that if God were to spare them, they would perform a Passion Play every ten years. They say not a single person fell victim to the Plague after that. Keeping their promise, the people of Oberammergau performed the first play in 1634 and have continued to do so throughout the centuries.
Today, many of Oberammergau's residents still take part in this powerful work of art featuring dramatic performances, beautiful music and choral accompaniment.
The residents of Oberammergau will again perform The Passion Play in 2022. Collette will be there, sharing in the magnificence of this performance with a variety of itineraries that showcase the charm and beauty of central Europe. Will you be there?
