    • Hotel Information: Final hotel accommodation will be confirmed in 2019.
    • Oberammergau Accommodation: Trafalgar has secured hotel accommodation either in Oberammergau or close by in the picturesque villages of the Bavarian Alps. Please note that single and triple rooms are not available for the Oberammergau stay. Solo travellers and triple share guests will be matched and accommodated in a twin room with a fellow solo Trafalgar traveller (of the same gender) for the duration of the stay.
    • Since 1634 and now only every ten years, the tiny picturesque Bavarian village of Oberammergau performs the Passion Play. This tragic and deeply moving chronicle depicts the passion of Christ at the time of the crucifixion.

It is an experience that will exceed every expectation and one Trafalgar highly recommends.
