The site of the world famous Passion Play. A small quaint village with only 5,000 inhabitants. The play, a five hour story of the Last Supper of Christ, is done every 10 years. The play has a cast of 2,000 of the 5,000 villagers. It is shown throughout the year and tickets are extremely hard to come by. The village is also know for its woodcrafters. Many shops with intricately designed wood carvings can be found. The buildings display elaborately painted murals. A must see if you are in Southern Bavaria.

Address: Southern Barvaria near the Austrian border
Directions: On the way to Garmische
