DAY 2

The Passion Play

After breakfast you will have some free time to relax or explore the local area before our transfer arrives to take us to the Passion Play.

The origins of this extraordinary play began in 1633 when the Bavarian village of Oberammergau was struck down by the Great Plague. The inhabitants prayed for their lives to be spared, pledging in return an oath to perform a play every ten years depicting the trial, suffering and resurrection of Jesus Christ. The death rate slowly subsided and the villagers believed they had been spared and have kept up with vow since the first performance in 1634. Today, visitors from across the world join here to marvel at a cast of approximately 2,000 amateur actors from the region, as they unfold scenes of The Passion Play.

DAY 3

Munich

After breakfast we will transfer to our hotel in Munich. Once we have checked in to our hotel we will meet our walking guide who will show us all the major sights this city has to offer.

Munich is Germany’s number-one city for art, science and culture. Back in the 19th-century, the Bavarian kings transformed Munich into a cultural capital. The numerous museums around the city host impressive collections of ancient, classic and modern art. However, there is no need to step into a museum to be awed by beauty; Munich’s city centre has some absolutely stunning architecture. Post World War II, much work has been done to restore the historic buildings back to their original splendour and now the city centre appears as it did in the late 1800’s.
