The Effingham County Chamber of Commerce has secured seats for the Passion Play in Oberammergau, Germany and a Danube River Cruise in May, 2020.

“We are excited to present this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view one of the world’s greatest productions, the Oberammergau Passion Play. The play is performed in the Bavarian town of Oberammergau, Germany every 10 years,” Norma Lansing, President & CEO of the Chamber announced.

“We have combined the play with a classic six-day Danube River Cruise, visiting the towns of Budapest, Bratislava, Vienna, Passau and Munich to give travelers a true European experience,” Lansing continued.

The 11-day trip runs from May 18 to 28, 2020. The land portion of the tour includes Munich, highlighting the world-famous Glockenspie, Linderhof Palace, one of the most artistic and stylistically complex ensembles of the 19th century and Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany’s most famous castle and the inspiration for the castle in Sleeping Beauty.

Trip pricing is based on cruise cabin availability. A deposit of $750 per person is due upon reservation, with a second payment due one year from date of departure. Reservations made after the deposit due date of January 26, 2018 are based on availability.

A special 30-minute webinar about the trip is scheduled for Tuesday, December 5 at 5:30 p.m. Registration for the webinar is required and can be found at:
