Picture perfect, Oberammergau is probably Bavaria’s most picturesque village, but it’s even more than that. Surrounded by snow-dusted peaks the village is a traditional Alpine retreat with a unique story. Once you’ve seen the ornate fresco paintings, the wood carvers, and admired the bloom-laden balconies, you’ll want to ask about the village’s Passion play. A 400-year-old tradition that sees the 5,000 residents coming together every 10 years to put on one of the world’s most spectacular stage performances: The Oberammergau Passion Play.
Oberammergau is the perfect location to soak up the beauty of the Bavarian Alps, to experience authentic Bavarian traditions and a wonderful family destination: Oberammergau boasts exhilarating outdoor experiences like Germany’s longest alpine coaster, incredibly scenic cableway rides and hikes along ravishingly beautiful mountain trails.
