2020 Oberammergau Passion Play Tours

Corona Virus: On Thursday, March 19, we received word from the Passion Play committee that the 2020 play would be postponed until 2022. You can read the letter here. Thank you in advance for your patience as we deal with the implications of this message. We anticipate reaching out to group leaders and individual clients in the order of trip travel (i.e. we will process May, then June, etc). For all groups, we are offering the opportunity to rebook for 2022 or other options such as travel excluding the play. The Passion Play committee has mentioned April 6 as when they will have more information on how to rebook, cancel, etc. so we anticipate knowing more at that time. Thank you for traveling and for your trust in Ed-Ventures!
