Your Travel Itinerary

Day 1-2
Tuesday 7 July – Wednesday 8 July 2020

Australia – Singapore – Frankfurt (Germany)

Our journey begins with a flight from Australia to Singapore where we can check-in to our hotel for a good night’s sleep.

A leisurely morning in Singapore before we fly to Europe arriving in Frankfurt in the evening. While in Singapore you may wish to enjoy High Tea at the famed Raffles Hotel or wander around colourful Chinatown.

Day 3
Thursday 9 July 2020

Frankfurt

Today you can enjoy a day at leisure – explore Frankfurt’s Alt Stadt (Old City) including the Romerberg where the reconstructed gabled half-timbered 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.

Day 4
Friday 10 July 2020

Rothenburg ob der Tauber – Munich

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 at every 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 beautiful Bavarian capital of Munich.

Day 5
Saturday 11 July 2020

Munich – Oberammergau

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.

Day 6
† Sunday 12 July 2020

Oberammergau Passion Play

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 2020 it will be the 47th 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!

Day 7
Monday 13 July 2020

Munich - Fly Home

We bid ‘auf Wiedersehen’ to Oberammergau and Germany as we travel back to Munich to catch our flight home.

Day 8
Tuesday 14 July 2020

Australia

We arrive back in Australia after our wonderful Oberammergau holiday. Our trip may have been brief but we have done so much and the people we have met and the incredible experiences we have shared are sure to live on in our memories.
