Munich, Germany – travel to Oberammergau

Oberammergau village is located in the valley of the river Ammer between the slopes of the Alps. From Munich to Oberammergau best way to travel is by private car with local driver. Population of the village is about 5,300 people, but once in 10 years up to half a million tourists come to Oberammergau tours! And this is due to the theatrical production of “The Passion of the Christ,” which takes place every 10 years, starting in 1634. Tickets are bought up for the performance a year before the performance, and up to 800 people are involved in the crowd scenes. Only those born in Oberammergau or living for at least 20 years have the right to participate in the performance.

Oberammergau is also famous for its half-timbered painted houses (these are clay walls with transverse patterns of wooden beams), actually thats motivate all travelers travel from Munich to Oberammergau. The founder of the style was born in 1748 in the house of Zum Luftl – the famous fresco painter Franz Zwink in these places, hence the name of this type of painting – Luftlmalerei.

The amazing village of Oberammergau is rich in crafts and is also famous for its woodcarvers. These products have long been very important to replenish the incomes of the villagers who used to live in difficult conditions and were forced to look for all sorts of means for food. Prices for souvenirs are now quite high, but after all, high-quality and painstaking manual work is always paid for with dignity.
