Towards the end of the Thirty Years War in central Europe, there was an outbreak of the plague in Bavaria. The elders of the village of Oberammergau in an effort to protect their village, decided to seal it off from outside contact. But an itinerant worker returned, bringing the plague with him and it swept through the village.
So the people solemnly vowed that, if God would show His compassion and lift the scourge, every ten years they would enact the Passion of our Lord. The plague left the village in 1633 and, as a perpetual thanksgiving and re-affirmation of faith, the villagers of Oberammergau have performed the Passion Play at regular intervals ever since
McCabe guests on this short break will be accommodated in Oberammergau village itself in guest houses walking distance from the theatre.
All McCabe guests will receive a top grade performance ticket.
We will have our own staff in the village helping you to make the very most from your time. Everybody is involved in some capacity, and you will be impressed at how smoothly the villagers cope with so many visitors.
