Every ten years the people of the Bavarian village of Oberammergau fulfil their vow to God made in 1634 in thanksgiving for deliverance from the plague that was ravaging Europe by performing a Passion Play
Watching the play is an overwhelmingly powerful experience. As in the past we are organising two ‘pilgrimages’ to Oberammergau in 2020 and booking for them opens today.
The first is with the Dean, The Very Revd Andrew Nunn from 26 June – 3 July staying in the Tyrol and walking a section of Jacobsweg (the Austrian route of the Camino to Santiago) as well as visiting sights from the ‘Sound of Music’ in Salzburg.
The second is with the Sub Dean Canon Michael Rawson and the Precentor Canon Gilly Myers from 2–9 September staying in St Gilgen on beautiful Wolfgansee with visits in the local area, lake steamer and mountain railway and a ‘Sound of Music’ tour of Salzburg and other locations in the area.
You can secure a place for a £200 deposit.
