Join CFT for the unique opportunity to see the glorious Oberammergau Passion Play and the beauty of Southern Germany. Delight in Bavaria’s alpine scenery and the artistry of Oberammergau’s muralled buildings and skilled woodcarvings.
On Thursday an evening flight from Australia (Perth, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane) takes us through to Dubai for an early morning arrival and where we have arranged for the hotel rooms to be ready on arrival.
Following an early morning transfer from the airport to the hotel on Friday you will have time for a shower and change in our hotel rooms that will be arranged to check in early. Later in the day we will have a guided tour of this amazing new city, resplendent with stunning skyscrapers and towers it is an architectural oasis in the desert. Tonight, enjoy a group dinner in a local restaurant overlooking the dancing fountain show.
This morning we fly to Europe arriving in Frankfurt in the early afternoon. Once one of the most important cities of the Holy Roman Empire, and the site of imperial coronations, Frankfurt is still a global hub for commerce, culture, education, tourism and transportation.
Today you can enjoy a day at leisure – explore Frankfurt’s Alt Stadt (Old City) including the Romerberg where the reconstructed gabled halftimbered buildings give an idea of how beautiful the city’s medieval core once was. Visit the nearby medieval Lutheran church of St Nicholas which was lucky to sustain only minor damage during the war. Enjoy your choice of many museums, including the Goethe House, or simply browse the
shops and relax at a café. Tonight, we join together to share our experiences and enjoy a group dinner.
We leave Frankfurt and travel to the “fairytale” walled town of Rothenburg ob der Tauber. Considered the best-preserved medieval town in all of Germany, Rothenburg offers photo opportunities everywhere you turn. Enjoy a walking tour and soak up the sights including the splendid renaissance Town Hall which dominates the beautiful Market Square. Along with the Rathaus we will visit the Kriminal Museum and the famous Kathe Wohlfahrt Christmas Village.
We drive further south to the Bavarian capital of Munich where we will enjoy traditional German food in a local restaurant.
Explore the best Munich has to offer with our city tour. Visit historic Marienplatz, the city’s central square since 1158; famous for the Glockenspiel, Marienplatz is named for the Marian Column and is dominated by the New Town Hall and the reconstructed gothic Old Town Hall. Wander the grounds of the superb Nymphenburg Palace, once the summer residence of the Bavarian monarchs and one of the largest royal palaces in Europe.
In the afternoon we will travel onto Oberammergau, a small village in the Bavarian Alps. As well as the Passion Play, Oberammergau is famed for its buildings adorned with incredible Biblical murals, the best known being the House of Pilate. Since the 1500’s Oberammergau has been renowned for its woodcarving and each day a “Living Workshop” within the “Pilatushaus” showcases the skill of some of the 60 local woodcarvers. If we are lucky, we may even witness the “birth” of a wooden figurine.
This is the day we have long been anticipating, a chance to experience the unique event that is the original Passion Play. Since 1634 the Villagers of Oberammergau have performed the “Play of the Suffering, Death and Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ” once every 10 years to fulfil their solemn oath to God. In 2022 it will be the 42nd time the Community of Oberammergau have performed the Passion Play that they have preserved throughout the centuries.
Our wonderful day will begin with Sunday worship and then a relaxed morning looking around the small village of Oberammergau. We will have a light lunch before the Passion Play starts in the afternoon (dinner will be served during intermission). Be prepared to be swept away by music and singing of breathtaking beauty, a memorable performance that takes you on an emotional journey. All in all, a truly marvellous way to spend a Sunday!
We bid “auf Wiedersehen” to Oberammergau and Germany and travel back
to Munich to catch our flight to Dubai on our homeward journey.
Today is a full day of leisure in Dubai. Your Tour Leader will be able to help you in your choice – you might like to visit the famous Dubai Mall, explore the Gold and Spice Souks or choose one of the many optional tours (available to book on arrival). Tonight, we will enjoy dinner together at the hotel.
After breakfast we reflect on how blessed we have been to share such a wonderful time together. We will farewell members of our group before being transferred to the airport for our various flights home to Australia.
Morning arrival in Australia. Our holiday may be at an end but the people we have met, the places we have seen and the incredible experiences we have shared are sure to live on in our memories.
