The Passion Play

Once a decade there is a major performance of the Passion of Christ there.

Why? Well back in 1634 Oberammergau was hit by a devastating plague. The townsfolk vowed that they would perform the show once every ten years if that plague never returned. Hundreds of years later the promise is still being kept.
