Probably the main reason people know about the town Oberammergau,


because of the Passion Play which is performed every 10years.

It was first performed in 1634 and is the result of a vow made by the inhabitants of the village. God spared them from the effects of the bubonic plague so they now perform a passion play every ten years.

After reading about the Town, we decided to come and see for ourselves.

So glad we came, it was really worth seeing!

    My favourite by now :-)) Have you been inside of the Pilatus House? The museum is also very exciting! And the cafes ... cakes to die for!

      No, didn't go inside Pitatus House. Agree with the cafes, cakes and a favorite town of mine too!

    Somehow the frescoes on the houses remind me of tattoos on people ? interesting, but not something I would want to have myself.

      I just love looking at them, so different to anywhere else. I guess because I paint, they hold a bigger interest.
