Oberammergau Passion Plays 2020
They take place every 10 years, with a historical background. In 1632 the plague struck Oberammergau. People suffering from the plague vowed at the cemetery to perform the suffering and dying of Christ every 10th year, if nobody else should die from the plague.
These Oberammergau Passion Plays will now be performed for the 42nd time from 16 May - 4 October 2020. Oberammergau is only a 4h drive away from Zurich, combine the legendary Passion Plays with a city trip in Zurich!
