Oberammergau Passion Play 2022
Eleven years ago we made our third visit to this wonderful play performed in this pretty Bavarian village in southern Germany close to the Austrian border. We are returning for our fourth visit in September 2022. This time instead of extending the holiday into Austria we are returning to what has become a special place for many Memory Lane clients, The Hotel Astoria, overlooking Lake Maggiore in Italy. We are now taking bookings for the tour and have confirmation of our arrangements in Oberammergau. First deposits are now due with your bookings. I have included details of our 5 star holiday which is as follows:
12 Days/11 Nights Dinner, Bed & Breakfast
15 September 2022…………….. £1679
Single Supplement TBA
Day 1: After our door step pickups about 8.30am we then journey in to Yorkshire with a visit to York and to find a little lunch. Around 4pm we depart to Hull to join our overnight crossings to Rotterdam. This crossing includes a great buffet dinner and breakfast, with low bedded cabins included. The ship offers a good programme entertainment until late.
Day 2: We arrive in Rotterdam around 8am and depart south across France and Germany towards Stuttgart with suitable refreshment stops along the way. We stop for the night near Singelfingen in a good quality 3 star hotel where we have dinner, bed and breakfast.
Day 3: After breakfast we set off to Oberammergau arriving mid to late afternoon. Here our 2 night stay will be in a 3 star hotel or a 4 star guest house close to the village. The arrangement we have purchased from the Play Office includes 2 nights accommodation, 2 evening meals, 2 breakfasts and a light lunch, transfers to and from the village and good tickets for the world famous Passion Play and a play guide in English. Our tickets are category 1 which means you will be seated in the mustard /gold area on the theatre plan (available on request).
Day 4: Today is the highlight of the tour as we join our local transport to the village of Oberammergau for the performance of the Passion Play, a really spectacular event that only takes place every ten years. There is a long break for lunch which is included. After witnessing this very moving performance we rejoin our local transport back to our accommodation for dinner.
Day 5: After breakfast we depart Germany and drive into Italy and Lake Maggiore to the stunning town of Stresa and the Hotel Astoria where we spend the next 5 nights with dinner, bed and breakfast at this fabulous lake side property. The hotel has a sun terrace on the roof and a very tasteful pool and sun area in the large rear garden. Lake View Rooms are available on request and at an extra charge.
Day 6 to 9: During our stay we will have two local excursions by coach and a boat excursion to Isola Bella. The boat fare is included in the tour price and entrance to the Palace is also included. There is a day at leisure to explore or relax.
Day 10: Sadly we depart Stresa and start our journey to the north to our overnight stop which includes dinner, bed and breakfast.
Day 11: Our last day on the continent. We head for Rotterdam and our overnight crossing which again includes dinner, breakfast and low berth cabins plus entertainment.
Day 12: We arrive in Hull around 8am and depart the ship about 9am and head to Harrogate for our last visit of the tour. Here there will be a chance to do a little shopping for home and get some lunch arriving back in our area around 4pm.
