At Avalon Waterways, we understand that travel can also be an opportunity to connect with your faith. Our special Oberammergau Cruises allow guests to enjoy all the luxuries of river cruising, as well as the chance to experience one of the most renowned expressions of Christian faith on the planet. A theatrical tradition since 1634, the world-famous Oberammergau Passion Play is a much-anticipated re-enactment of the crucifixion of Christ. In accordance with a promise made by the townspeople to God during the Great Plague, the Passion Play in Oberammergau is performed only once a decade in this quaint Bavarian village. Secure your place at the 2022 performance, as well as an experience of Christian culture and architecture throughout Europe, aboard the Avalon Waterways Oberammergau Cruise.
