Oberammergau Passion Play and Danube River Cruise
About the Journey
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 2022 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.
