Ride to the incredible Oberammergau Passion Play, held every 10 years
Green Jersey French Cycling Tours
+44 (0)1300 350 555
Every 10 years since 1634, the residents of this small Bavarian village give thanks for being spared from the Black Death by performing a Passion Play, based on the events surrounding the death of Christ. The whole village is involved, with the actors themselves needing to have been born in Oberammergau to win roles – but this is far from an amateur production. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to cycle to see the famous Oberammergau Passion Play, passing many interesting and historic places in France and Germany en route. The Green Jersey team rode from the Portsmouth to Oberammergau in 2010 – the last time the play was performed – so this route is tried and tested. Whether you wish to visit for religious reasons, to witness one of the most historic cultural events in Europe or to re-create the happenings in Jerome K Jerome's Three Men on a Pilgrimage, this is an event you will always remember. The route takes you north of Paris then across France to the southern Vosges, via Verdun, and into Germany passing the source of the Danube, Lake Constance and, finally, to the little village near the famous ski resort of Garmsich-Partenkirken. It covers 12 days' cycling and is not to be missed. Covers between 50 miles (80km) and 80 miles (130km) each day, clocking up a total of 706 miles (1131km). Price includes tickets to the play in the highest category of seats (worth almost £200), 13 nights' accommodation, all breakfasts except on on one ferry crossing, and 9 evening meals. Fully guided with on-road vehicle support.
Dates: May 24 to June 6, 2020
