Important notice

The 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play will be postponed due to the current situation caused by the corona pandemic. The basis for this is a decision of the district administration of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which prohibits the performance of the event planned from 16.05.2020 to 04.10.2020. The health of our guests and participants is our highest priority, therefore the responsible persons have decided to postpone the premiere of the Passion Play, which was planned for 16 May 2020, until 2022. The premiere is now scheduled for May 14, 2022.

The health of the population is a top priority for the community of Oberammergau and the directing team around Christian Stückl as well. The Corona pandemic has made it impossible to complete this year's play without endangering the performers and guests. Furthermore, the perspective for this year is unclear. A postponement of only a few months seemed unacceptable to everyone involved.

Two options are offered for the reimbursement of tickets and arrangements already purchased: Presumably from April 6, reservations for this year's performances can be converted into a reservation for 2022. Another possibility is to cancel tickets and arrangements. In this case you will receive a refund of the ticket or arrangement. Please fill out the form (PDF-Download). All B2B partners will soon receive a separate email with information on how to process the refund including a separate form. Please do not use the form for end customers as B2B partner.

You will find information promptly on our website Thank you for your understanding that due to the current exceptional situation our booking service is not available immediately and probably not until April 6th either by phone, mail or e-mail.

We would like to thank you very much for the many warm words and the support! We, too, have to process the resolution first, sort it out and reposition ourselves for 2022. Please be patient, we will try to inform you about the new status as soon as possible. Together we now look forward to 2022 and hope to welcome you in Oberammergau.
