Perfect for: culture vultures, theatre lovers, and history buffs

Embark on the experience of a lifetime in 2022 when you add Germany's Oberammergau Passion Play, performed just once every 10 years, to our 8-day Danube river cruise.

Since 1634, the inhabitants of this small Bavarian community have put on a stunning portrayal of the life and death of Jesus in the world’s longest running play. Originally produced by the villagers in gratitude for being spared from the bubonic plague that was terrorizing the region, the show has been performed 42 times and is considered the most important Passion Play in the world.

Nestled at the edge of the Bavarian Alps, Oberammergau is a quaint village that owes its celebrated reputation to the production of these once-a-decade performances.  It is a village rich in history, theatre and pageantry. With 1 day admission to the Passion Play included with your cruise, you will have the unique opportunity to witness this amazing production performed live – a truly unforgettable experience.

Note the Passion Play was originally scheduled for 2020, and has been rescheduled to 2022.
