Devastated by the plague in 1633, the people of Oberammergau performed the first Passion Play in a profound expression of repentance, vowing that if they were spared, natives of the town would perform the play every ten years.

400 years later, planning for the 42nd Passion Play has begun and Trafalgar returns to the scene.


Trafalgar first showcased the Passion Play in 1970 and we’ve attended every edition since. So while the play will undoubtedly be the focus of your pilgrimage, we'll make your experience even more fulfilling by revealing not only historic Oberammergau, but also the richness of Bavaria, and beyond.

Discover soaring peaks, magical castles and charming local traditions on our varied itineraries. Trafalgar will take you to the heart of the region so you can discover Bavaria like locals, with locals.
