Oberammergau gained world wide reputation for the Passion Play which takes place every ten years and was first performed as early as early as 1634. Watch the video for more information.
The village has a population of a little bit more than 5000 and as I know all actors are locals.
Unfortunately, neither Elizabeth nor I had a chance to see it. ere too late!

Advanced booking is recommended. Package deals are offered that include accommodation and even meals.
But Oberammergau has much to offer. You can visit some of the famous wood carvers and watch them crafting.
Years ago we imported from Oberammergau "Jumping Jacks" that are made by artists, strictly following the old techniques and traditions. They sold very well.
A well known American magazine dedicated an article depicting these unique collectibles that are sold in only a few selected American stores.

Elizabeth also loved window shopping in Oberammergau and seeing all the Bavarian style dwellings.
We enjoyed the scenery of the "Ammer Valley". The Ammer is a little creek. Because we lived so close, over night stays seemed unnecessary. We regret this now, because we took everything for granted and did not take advantage of what was being offered. Now it is too late.
You can walk for hours or rent bicycles to explore the area or you can enjoy a day in the sports complex, called "The Wellenberg". A Spa with a variety of indoor and outdoor pools, water slides, sauna, solarium, restaurant and much more.

Watch the hang gliders, use the mountain train to "climb" on the "Laber", visit all the near by attractions, such as the castle "Schloß Linderhof" which was built by the beloved Bavarian King Ludwig II. It is the same king who was responsible for "Neu Schwanstein" and "Schloß Herrenchiemsee".
