The 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play will be postponed due to the current situation caused by the corona pandemic. The basis for this is a decision of the district administration of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which prohibits the performance of the event planned from 16.05.2020 to 04.10.2020. The health of our guests and participants is our highest priority, therefore the responsible persons have decided to postpone the premiere of the Passion Play, which was planned for 16 May 2020, until 2022. The premiere is now scheduled for May 14, 2022.
We invite you to Oberammergau!
For the next Passion Play, Youth Days will take place for the first time in Oberammergau with over 8,000 young visitors. Come and experience the world’s most famous Passion Play together with other young guests from all over the world.
The Youth Days will take place from 7 to 10 May, 2020 in Oberammergau and are aimed at young people between 16 and 26 years of age.
The focus will be on a visit to a Passion Play final rehearsal. Accompanying it among other things introductions into the Play as well as panel discussions with Stage Director Christian Stückl and participants of the Passion Play take place. There will also be an accompanying church program with prayer for peace, ecumenical service and workshops. In the evening we all want to celebrate together.
