Oberammergau 2022 Passion Play
The quaint European village of Oberammergau is world-famous for the spectacular Passion Play. Performed solely by its residents just once every 10 years. Keeping a pledge made nearly 400 years ago, this reenactment of the crucifixion of Christ preserves the health and well-being of Oberammergau’s residents to this day. And, is regarded as the most important passion play in the world.
A promise kept for 388 years!
In 1633, the villagers of the small hamlet of Oberammergau, Germany made a promise to God: Save us from the plague, and we will perform a Passion Play telling stories of Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection every 10 years. The deaths from the plague ceased, and hundreds of years later, the tradition continues with an epic production that brings audiences from all over the world.

Passion Play Theatre
The first performance of the play took place in 1634 on a simple wooden stage in the village cemetery. – Above the graves of recent victims of the Plague. In the early 19th century, the performance was moved to the theatre’s current location due to the growth in the number of visitors coming to see the play from around the world. The play now takes place in Oberammergau’s large, open-air, purpose-built theatre with covered seating so performances can take place whatever the weather.
The auditorium seats around 4,500 people, with comfortable seats set on an incline, providing everyone with a good view.
