Passion Play 2020

May 16 - October 4, 2020 - A village plays passion

Since 1634 the Passion Plays of Oberammergau have been brought to the stage once in a decade.

During the Thirty Years War, the plague raged in Europe and did not spared Oberammergau either.

The legend reports that the village elders swore to play every ten years the story of the suffering, death and resurrection of Jesus when no one dies of the plague in the village.

The villagers of Oberammergau have kept to their promises to this day - almost 400 years later - and so in 2020 the 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play will take place.
