IF it’s a religious experience you’re looking for, then Oberammergau’s Passion Play is certainly one not to miss. The moving stage performance dates back to 1633, when the German town of Oberammergau suffered brutally from the Plague. Residents pledged that if God were to spare them from death, they would perform a play each decade to celebrate the life and death of Jesus. Miraculously, the vow was upheld from above and the townspeople rejoiced by performing the very first Passion Play during Pentecost in 1634.
