Great Rail Journeys has released its 2018 Brochure Preview Europe, UK & Cruising by Rail, including three itineraries in 2020 taking customers to celebrate The Oberammergau Passion Play.
The event includes the famous play that tells the story of the life and death of Jesus Christ. More than 2,000 locals are involved in the play as actors, musicians and technical crew.
The performances take place from May to September, in the specially constructed 4,700 seat, outside auditorium. This tradition has began in 1634.
The three Oberammergau itineraries explore either Lake Garda, the Austrian Alps or the Castles, mountains and Lakes of Bavaria, and the highlight of each tour is the Oberammergau Passion Play.
All three itineraries include top tier tickets to the show. These once-a-decade tours start from £2,145pp for an 8-day tour. Customers can save up to £150 per person when booking on or before 15 August, 2017.
Head of product and contracting Louise Heatley said, “We are delighted to release the new itineraries for our Oberammergau tours in 2020. This exciting celebration only comes round once a decade, and our dedicated tour managers and fantastic excursions combine to make this a once in a life time experience for many of our customers. With some of the best seats in the house, Great Rail Journeys customers will enjoy a stunning view of this historic and cultural masterpiece.”
All tours include the services of a professional UK tour manager, quality hotel accommodation, local guides, a programme of excursions, meals in the hotel and at local restaurants and specialist tour advisors.
