Oberammergau Passion Play and Lake Maggiore

Oberammergau is in the Bavarian Alps, close to Germany's border with Austria. Nestled in the lush valley of the River Ammer, here you will find strong Bavarian traditions complete with painted houses, woodcarving workshops and wonderful views onto the surrounding Alps. Following your 2 night stay in the Oberammergau area travel on to your chosen second centre destination on Italy’s Lake Maggiore. Here magnificent mountains plunge to the lakeside and grand villas lie secluded behind palm trees and lush gardens. Our base is in the stylish resort of Stresa, within sight of the Borromean Islands.
