The story of the Passion Play began almost 400 years ago in Oberammergau. The plague raged in many parts of Europe and did not stop at Oberammergau. In order to put an end to misery, the people of Oberammergau decided to take a vow. In 1633 they vowed to perform the suffering and death of Christ every ten years, provided that no one dies of the plague. The village was heard and so the Oberammergauers played the first Passion Play in 1634. The Oberammergauers have kept their promise to this day.
The 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play will take place from May 16th to October 4th, 2020.
