Cruise to Oberammergau, Germany to witness one of the most unique performances on earth, Passionsspiele, The Passion Play. Dating back to 1633 when the Great Plague descended upon the village, the villagers made a promise to to God that they would share his word through the story of Christ if no more lives would be lost. Flash forward to the present, and this tradition still continues today!
