Passion Play 2022

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: 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 www.passionplay-oberammergau.com. Thank you for your understanding that due to the current exceptional situation our booking service is currently not available by phone and that longer processing times of 90 days may occur. Please take a look at the FAQs before filling out the form.

Clarifying note on Viagogo

A large number of tickets for the 2022 Passion Play are offered via the Viagogo ticket platform. The advance ticket sales for the Passion Play 2022 start on 5 October 2020. Please note that Viagogo is a ticket provider in the secondary use market, i.e. Viagogo is not an official ticket provider. The prices offered are not original prices! Depending on the category, the original prices are between EUR 30 and EUR 180. Viagogo sometimes charges a multiple of these original ticket prices.

Please also note that Viagogo does not specify seats or at least categories currently. Especially the distance from the stage is not indicated. Even if you buy an expensive ticket, it is therefore still possible that you will end up sitting in the cheapest category for EUR 30 original price.

We were able to enjoin Viagogo successfully from advertising the tickets with misleading statements such as "sold out". However, Viagogo continues to offer the tickets.

Advance ticket sales for the 2022 Passion Play will begin on 5 October 2020. Tickets will be available on our website or by phone at +49 8822 835 93 30.
