Nearly 400 years ago the history of the Passion Play began. The plague raged in many parts of Europe and did not spare Oberammergau either.
Protection of the health of guests and participants is essential for us as the organizer. We therefore will take all necessary measures for the protection against infection in order to enable the safe preparation and performance of the event.
We, as the organizer, are subject to the current Bavarian Regulation on the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases. You can find the current regulations here: www.stmgp.bayern.de/coronavirus/rechtsgrundlagen.
Currently, there are no more access restrictions for your theatre visit. The mask requirement also no longer applies. All seats in the theatre can be occupied.
We are not allowed to provide you with rental blankets for hygienic reasons. You may bring your own blankets into the theatre.
The current status of the infection control measures and any further rules of conduct will be made available at i.a. the Information Centre, the box office, the baggage drop-off and on our website www.passionsspiele-oberammergau.de/en/visit/info-service.
Please inform yourself independently and on your own responsibility about the current status of the measures taken and the applicable rules of conduct before attending the event.
