A CITY BREAK AT THE CHARLES HOTEL MUNICH COMBINED WITH THE UNIQUE EXPERIENCE OF WATCHING THE PASSION PLAY

05/02/2020



The villagers of Oberammergau have been performing the world-famous Passion Play since 1634. Featuring over 2,000 local amateur actors and a full orchestra, this event, which only takes place every 10 years, is an unforgettable spectacle. From 16 May to 4 October 2020, The Charles Hotel, a Rocco Forte hotel, is offering guests a very special opportunity to combine a mini-break in Munich with a visit to this incredible production.
 
The Oberammergau Passion Play is the most famous event of its kind in the world. In a production lasting several hours, the villagers of Oberammergau re-enact the last five days in the life of Jesus. The Passion Play was first performed to fulfil a pledge made by survivors of the plague. Since 1680, the play has been performed at ten-year intervals, generally in the final year of each decade. In December 2014, the Oberammergau Passion Play was included in Germany’s Nationwide Inventory of Intangible Cultural Heritage (Bundesweites Verzeichnis des immateriellen Kulturerbes) in line with the UNESCO Convention for the Safeguarding of Immaterial Cultural Heritage.
 
Before or after the play, guests staying at The Charles Hotel will be chauffeured from Munich to Oberammergau or vice versa in a luxury limousine in just an hour and a half. The concierge will be organising a three-hour tour of the city with a private tour guide, who plans to take guests to some lesser-known locations and offer insights into Munich’s heritage. Back at The Charles Hotel, guests can relax in the 800 sqm Charles Spa and round off an eventful day with a delicious meal and excellent cocktails in Sophia’s Restaurant & Bar.

2 nights in a luxurious room including breakfast
