Who has not heard of Oberammergau, the world-famous village in the Bavarian Alps? The name at least is familiar to most people. Oberammergau has became world famous because of the passion plays performed in the village every ten years. More than 2,000 Oberammergau villagers will take part in the passion plays, fulfilling the solems promise of their forefathers to perform a play depicting the passion of Christ.

The latest performance was in 2000 --will you be there in 2010?
