Summary

Behold spectacular Alpine vistas and enjoy a performance of the famed Oberammergau Passion Play on this journey through Italy, Switzerland, Austria, and Germany. In Zermatt, climb aboard the Glacier Express for an unforgettable train ride through the Alpine scenery of majestic mountains, verdant valleys, picturesque canyons, glistening glaciers and snowcapped peaks. The birthplace of Mozart and Mirabell Gardens are featured during your leisurely tour of Salzburg, Austria, before treating your taste buds to a scrumptious dinner and Mozart concert at the centuries-old St. Peter’s Restaurant. In Germany’s Bavarian capital of Munich, see the Marienplatz, the Glockenspiel and the Olympic Park. Visit Neuschwanstein Castle, one the most iconic castles in Europe. Your final destination Oberammergau, a quaint village nestled in the Bavarian Alps, is where you’ll witness a performance of the world-renowned Passion Play, whose origins date back to 1634. Watch as the entire village comes together to fulfill their vow to perform a play every ten years in honor of Christ’s life if they were spared from the Black Plague.
