A much anticipated event only staged once every 10 years - This high quality HOTEL package combines an uplifting cultural experience with unsurpassed scenic sightseeing.

Traditionally held only once every 10 years this is a much anticipated event!  Pilgrims from around the world are captivated by the play which has been performed since 1633 and is a testimony of religious faith and an outstanding cultural event.  The play tells the story of Christ’s Passion, beginning with the entry into Jerusalem and ending with the resurrection.  Meals and local transport around the village are all included in the package, and this makes for a relaxing and uplifting experience. 

 

We have been fortunate in securing much sought-after hotel accommodation in the Oberammergau area rather than using rooms in lower grade venues that some other tour operators offer, resulting in an altogether higher quality package.

  

Following the visit to Oberammergau we shall be moving to a second centre in Austria’s Western Tyrol – our chosen base is the world class resort of St Anton which provides spectacular sightseeing opportunities: Alpine peaks, lush meadows, sparkling lakes and World class heritage – this tour has it all!
