About the tour: Final Performance of the 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play and the Austrian Tyrol

For all of those involved, the last play is the emotional highlight of the Passion Year, as everyone is aware that it will be ten years before the Passion Play is performed again. The day marks the end of an intensive rehearsal and performance period; for more than a year, over 2,300 participants gathered almost daily in the Passion Play Theatre to perform the "Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ".

Sure to be the highlight of your holiday, you’re guaranteed to experience an afternoon and evening filled with emotion as you enjoy the final play of 2020, knowing that it will not take place for another ten years!

On this incredible fully escorted coach holiday, you’ll witness the final performance in Oberammergau, as well as visiting some of Austria’s most charming cities and sights. A holiday to Austria would not be complete without a stop-off in Salzburg to relax in the city's lovely squares, explore the quaint narrow shopping lanes, and perhaps sample a strudel and coffee in one of the many pavement cafés. In contrast, you’ll also have chance to spend time in stunning Kitzbühel, an area of outstanding natural beauty.

    We are unable to guarantee that the hotel will be able to meet your dietary requirements. We find that the majority of European countries do not generally cater for vegetarians and that the meal supplied may well be what everyone else is having minus the meat.
