Princeton Journeys is delighted to announce an opportunity to experience one of the world’s greatest dramatic spectacles, the extravagant Passion Play staged once a decade by residents of the quaint village of Oberammergau. With a cast of thousands and a legacy that encompasses nearly four centuries, Oberammergau’s rare tradition is made even more exceptional with this program’s specially reserved seating and thoughtfully arranged cultural enrichments.
This custom itinerary begins with a five-night deluxe cruise along the fabled Danube River, with ports of call in Budapest, Hungary; Bratislava, Slovakia; Vienna, Austria; and Melk, Germany. Disembark in Passsau and transfer to medieval Salzburg, a UNESCO World Heritage site and scenic backdrop for The Sound of Music. Next, spend two nights in a charming hotel in the Bavarian Alps just outside Oberammergau and enjoy the 2020 Passion Play with your fellow Princetonians. Conclude this once-in-a-lifetime adventure with two nights in the 800-year-old city of Munich, Bavaria’s historic capital.
