Oberammergau Passion Play and the Black Forest

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 the Black Forest. This is the land of lush meadows, pine clad hills, rushing rivers and traditional chocolate box villages.

By Coach or by Air with Norman Allen Group Travel – the choice is yours

Travel from the UK is by coach or by air, according to your preference. Tours by coach include a comfortable overnight stay en-route on both the outbound and inbound journeys. Tours by air can be arranged from a number of regional airports and Munich is our suggested German gateway.

For illustrative purposes the itinerary below is based on a 9 day tour by coach.
