  • OBERAMMERGAU SUMMER SPECIAL

    Bavarian Smoking Men

    Southern Germany - Bavaria - has long been regarded as one of the most beautiful regions of Germany, particularly in the summertime. The quaint village of Oberammergau has become world-famous due to the Passion Play that is held here every 10 years (next performances 2020). The town also has a tradition of wood-carving whci is associated with the Passion Play, as well as numerous houses with painted facades that relate to religious passages from the Bible or to the stories of the Brothers Grim. Our time spent in Oberammergau is relaxing, with plenty of time to explore regional attractions such as the castles built by "Mad" King Ludwig of Bavaria. Won't you join us?

     

    24 Aug.     Arrive Munich.
    Transfer to Oberammergau in Southern Bavaria. This is the home of the recent "Passion Play" which is performed every 10 years. Check-in to Hotel Boeld near the town centre. Tonight will be a special occasion as Oberammergau celebrates the birthday of "Mad" King Ludwig II of Bavaria. From our hotel we can witness the torchlight procession by mountain climbers as they ascend the "Kofel" peak - where they end with a fireworks display. Welcome meal and drink. (D)
