A Once-in-a-Decade Event
Every decade, the Passion Play of Oberammergau draws hundreds of thousands of Christians from around the globe who want to experience the events that played out that fateful week in Jerusalem more than 2000 years ago, events that changed our lives forever. You can be a part of it too!
Villagers in this small Bavarian community have been re-enacting the passion of Christ for nearly 400 years. In 1633, the Black Plague was rampaging through Europe, killing thousands. The surviving villagers of Oberammergau made a vow: if God spared them from further deaths, they would perform a Passion Play every 10 years. According to the story that’s been passed down from generation to generation, no one else in the village died. So to fulfill their pledge, the townspeople performed their play for the first time in 1634. Amazingly, Oberammergau has kept that promise to this day.
