Oberammergau Passion Play and the Austrian Tyrol

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 in Austria’s eastern Tyrol. Excursion possibilities are plentiful and can include lakes and mountains in addition to the cultural highlights of Innsbruck and Salzburg. Popular second centres in this area of Austria include Söll and Mayrhofen.
