The Passion Play Performance at Oberammergau, Upper Bavaria
14 Days ~ May 11th - 24th 2020
Visiting Switzerland, Austria, Germany and Liechtenstein

 

 

Experience the 42nd “Oberammergau Passion Play” performed at the Passion Theatre, an open-air stage with majestic mountains in the background creating an unforgettable scene. Oberammergau is a quaint Bavarian village located in Germany 60 miles from Munich. In 1633 the citizens of this small picturesque town voted to perform "The Passion of Christ" every decade if their town was spared the devastation of the black plague that was spreading throughout all of Europe. It is believed that this play was first performed in 1634 and has indeed been held every 10 years since the promise was made.

The play follows the life and death of Christ from the moment he enters Jerusalem through His Trial, Crucifixion, and Ascension and is performed by over 2,000 people who must be residents of the town to participate. The play has 124 speaking roles, a 65-member orchestra, 48 person chorus and hundreds of support people from costuming to technical expertise. The entire production is authentic from men growing their hair and beards and authentic handmade costumes, something to be experienced at least once in a lifetime.
In 2020 "The Passion of Christ" play in Oberammergau is expected to draw 750,000 people. Come be part of this exceptional opportunity and witness this amazing promise performed in its native German. This play is so powerful that there is no language barrier just pure passion and emotion that is felt not only by the townspeople performing but by the thousands of spectators in the audience.


An opportunity that comes once every 10 Years…
Come be part of the story, May 2020

Oberammergau

Nearly 400 years ago the history of the Passion Play began. The plague raged in many parts of Europe and did not spare Oberammergau either.

Panama City Beach is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, in the northern “pan handle” of Florida. The city, which is a separate municipality from Panama City, is famous for “The World’s Most Beautiful Beaches”, due to the unique sugar-white soft sand.


Panama City Beach offers visitors great shopping, fabulous restaurants and a long list of other services, in addition to being a terrific place to get away from the Canadian Winter.
To better meet our customers demands and to be more cost efficient, we have decided to operate the coaches on an every other week basis. This means that we will only be offering the 17 or 31 day holidays, as people generally found the one week holiday to be too short. Also, all of the activities will now be planned on a two week rotation versus one, meaning that we can offer a little more variety! We are pleased to be offering 3 Resort Condominiums to choose from—The Grand Panama Resort, an incredible 4 star modern resort; Laketown Wharf Resort, a modern 4 star resort, with incredible amenities OR the Summit Resort, a more traditional Condominium, with a 3 star rating. Prices at the Summit Resort start at $1,499.00 for a 17 day holiday including motor coach transportation to and from Florida; one night of accommodation enroute; two weeks in a fully furnished one bedroom condo on the beach; and the services of on site Hanover Holidays staff and motor coach. The same package at the Grand Panama Resort start at $1,619.00 per person, and you can choose any length of stay up to 2 ½ months.
A lot of clients rebook these packages year after year, so you will want to make your reservation early!!
