OberammergauOberammergau is a small village, easily walkable, and pedestrian friendly. From the location in the photo, essentially the center of the village, the Passion Play theatre is about 2 blocks away. If you look to the bottom left of the photo you will see one of the many storefronts of the local woodcarvers. Many of them also use their store as their 'studio' so you can watch them carve as you shop! The history of woodcarving in Oberammergau and the Ammergau region can be traced as far back as the Middle Ages, with records indicating monks returned from the area with wood art and small wood furniture. During your visit you will be able to see that the artisans still practice the traditional methods of the art form. Of course, many of these woodcarvers are also actors in the Passion Play since all participants must also be residents of Oberammergau.

Hello!  My name is Rachel Najar and I am the European Operations Manager for Image Tours, Inc.

In preparation for Passion Play 2010 in Oberammergau, Germany, I recently traveled to the beautiful countryside of southern Bavaria in Germany and the region of Tyrol, Austria in order to meet with the service providers, see some of the hotels, and discuss the  2010 Passion play with the Tourist office and locals of Oberammergau.

Over the next months I will continue to share my experiences, as well as my photos from this inspection trip to give you a taste of all the preparations and excitement that surround the Passion Play, performed every 10 years in the village of Oberammergau, Germany.
