Andante Travels’ unique Oberammergau Short Break is perfect for those wanting to appreciate this legendary spectacle with the minimum commitment of time and budget.

There is no more ‘efficient’ way to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime experience!

Day 1 - London - Oberammergau
This morning we take an early flight to Munich from London. Upon arrival, we drive approximately two hours to the charming Alpine village of Oberammergau, the setting for the iconic Passion Play. Tonight, we have our first dinner together as a group and will then return to our hotel in the village for the rest of the evening.
Hotel: AURA-HOTEL, Saulgrub
Day 2 - Oberammergau
After breakfast, we have ample time to explore Oberammergau itself. A village known for its traditional woodcarvers, many of the shops here both display and sell the wares of these skilled craftspeople. Elsewhere, there is the fantastic Oberammergau Museum, which also showcases the area’s magnificent carvings as well as historic artefacts uncovered in the region. Of course, the museum also tells the origin story of the Passion Play itself.
The play is set to begin at 2.30pm local time and will finish in the evening at 10.30pm. Dinner will be included during the intermission of three hours, so there will be adequate time to stretch your legs. It is helpful to note that the Passion Play is performed in German – its native language – but you will be able given a textbook with an English translation at the event itself.
