Three New Viking River Cruises Announced For Oberammergau, The Passion Play 2020

February 22, 2019 Cruise No Comments Email Email


Viking has released three new 2020 Danube River cruise itineraries that will allow guests to experience the world-famous Passion Play in Oberammergau, Germany — an opportunity that comes along only once a decade.

  • 10-day Oberammergau & Romantic Danube from Oberammergau to Budapest, priced from $6,395 per person in a Standard stateroom.
  • 11-day Oberammergau, Salzburg & the Danube from Oberammergau to Budapest, priced from $6,595 per person in a Standard stateroom.
  • 12-day Oberammergau, Salzburg & Cruise from Oberammergau to Budapest, priced from $6,995 per person in a Standard stateroom.

These itineraries are variations of Viking’s three existing 2020 Oberammergau itineraries — the 10-day Oberammergau, The Passion Play, the 12-day Oberammergau with Salzburg and the 10-day Oberammergau & Danube Waltz — all of which are almost completely sold out.

As part of Viking’s popular Explorer Sale, guests who book a Viking 2020 Oberammergau river cruise before 31 March 2019 can fly to Europe for just $995 per person.

“Given how fast our original 2020 Oberammergau river cruises sold out, we encourage guests to book these new itineraries as soon as possible to avoid any disappointment,” said Lubica Sibikova,Operations and Product Manager at Viking.

The origins of the Passion Play date back to 1633 when the Great Plague descended upon Oberammergau and many lives were lost. The villagers made a promise to God that they would tell the story of Christ every tenth year if they were spared from the disease, and the tradition still continues today.
