The Passion Play is a centuries-old tradition in Oberammergau, a town tucked at the edge of the Bavarian Alps in Germany. It depicts the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus Christ and is produced only every 10 years, attracting hundreds of thousands of visitors from around the world. Several companies offer itineraries that include a river cruise and tickets to one of the performances; these cruises are scheduled for May through September 2022.
