In 1633, the residents of Oberammergau, Bavaria, Germany, vowed that if God spared them from the bubonic plague ravaging the region, they would produce a play thereafter for all time depicting the life and death of Jesus. The death rate among adults rose from one person per 1000 per year in October 1632 to twenty in the month of March 1633. The ***** death rate slowly subsided to one in the month of July 1633. The villagers believed they had been spared and they kept their part of the vow when the play was first performed in 1634. Wikipedia

Plan to travel with us and Collette Vacations in June of 2020 (June 2 is just a place holder--the exact date is unknown).
I am expecting to have itinerary and pricing information in September. Let me know of your interest, and I will add you to my list--I currently have 7 people.
I will have 20 seats available that will be booked on a first come/first serve basis.
This is a once in a lifetime experience--something that you do not want to miss.
We will be visiting other sites in Bavaria--More to come!

Here is an updated itinerary (This could still change a bit, but I don't expect it to change much.)

Behind the Baroque façade is a Rococo world, rich in abundant ornamentation. Next, enjoy free time exploring medieval Fussen, the Romantic town on the foothills of the Bavarian Alps. Later, visit the royal Bavarian castle Hohenschwangau, the childhood residence of King Ludwig II of Bavaria. Before returning to Innsbruck, make a special picture stop at Neuschwanstein castle, Germany’s most famous castle and the inspiration for the castle in Sleeping Beauty. Today breakfast will be included.

Day 5: Innsbruck – Swarovski Crystal Worlds - Salzburg
Visit Swarovski Crystal Worlds, a fairy tale world of shimmering crystal amid the mystical mountains of Tirol. Spend time exploring a multi-sensory experience of crystal in all its facets including a magical menagerie of art installations, a museum and theme park. Later, travel through the Austrian countryside to the musical city of Salzburg. Beautiful gardens, old-world architecture and friendly locals paint Salzburg’s delightful canvas. Home to Mozart, dotted with sights from the beloved film The Sound of Music, and with an Old City that is a UNESCO World Heritage site, Salzburg truly has something for everyone. This evening, join your fellow travelers for a Mozart dinner concert at the centuries-old St. Peter’s Restaurant, central Europe’s oldest restaurant. It dates to 803!

Immerse yourself in Salzburg’s city’s rich history. Begin your day with a leisurely-paced walking tour featuring Mirabell Gardens, famously featured during the song “Do Re Mi” from The Sound of Music; and Getreidegasse – a busy street in the Old Town section of Salzburg that also happens to be the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. The remainder of the day is at leisure. The afternoon, independently explore this beautiful baroque city on the banks of the Salzach River. Perhaps visit the city’s amazing historic area, browse its wonderful shops or enjoy a coffee at a local café while soaking in the charming atmosphere. Today breakfast will be included.

You may want to take the funicular to the 16th century Hohensalzburg Fortress, high above the rooftops of the historical district, tour Leopoldskron Palace, an original shooting location from “The Sound of Music” or visit the 17th century medieval bishops’ Residenz Palace, home to some 180 rooms and courtyards where the prince archbishops of Salzburg held court. Today breakfast will be included.

Day 8: Oberammergau - Passion Play
Travel to the picturesque village of Oberammergau. This afternoon, witness a performance of the epic Passion Play. The original performance dates back to 1634. During the Thirty Years’ War, Oberammergau was spared the Black Plague and for this reason, the citizens vowed that every ten years they would give a play to honor the last days of the life of Christ. The performers of this once-in-a-decade play are all native to the village. To lend authenticity to the performance, the cast starts to grow their hair and beards more than a year in advance. During a break in the performance, join your fellow travelers for dinner before returning to the Passion Play’s final performance. Today breakfast and dinner will be included.

Day 9: Oberammergau – Munich
This morning journey to the Bavarian capital of Munich – idyllically situated at the foot of the Alps.

Next, marvel at the Baroque-influenced architecture of the city as you visit the Marienplatz – the heart of Munich and the most scenic square of the old town. Here, behold the Rathaus-Glockenspiel – an ornate clock comprised of 43 bells and 32 life-sized figures that depict medieval jousting and dancing – reflecting different pieces of Bavaria’s history. Have leisure time to explore Munich’s lovely historic center, visit one of its many museums or discover more of the city’s beauty on your own before gathering for a farewell dinner celebrating the end of an unforgettable journey. Today breakfast and dinner will be included.
