CroisiEurope has announced details of a Danube cruise that includes two nights in Oberammergau plus seats for the world-famous 2020 Passion Play.
From 16 May to 4 October 2020, the villagers of Oberammergau in Bavaria will once again perform their renowned Passion Play, a tradition which goes back to 1634.
The performance, which involves more than 2,000 villagers, takes place every ten years and commemorates Christ’s journey into Jerusalem, his death and resurrection.
The eight-day itinerary starts with a six-day Danube cruise from Budapest to Passau visiting Bratislava, Vienna and Melk.
Guests will then transfer to Oberammergau for a two-night stay during which they will see the performance of the Passion Play as well as a meal during the interval. There are three departures on 17 June, 17 July and 26 August 2020.
The itinerary is also available in reverse, starting with two nights in Oberammergau followed by a six-day cruise from Passau to Budapest with two departures on 20 July and 19 August 2020.
The cruise takes place on the MS Symphonie which was inaugurated in 2017 with cruise only prices starting from £2,055 per person to include the six-day Danube cruise with all meals, drinks and port fees, two nights in Oberammergau and orchestra seat tickets to the Passion Play.
