About Oberammergau

Oberammergau is quiet and quaint: a collection of traditional alpine houses, cheerfully painted, in a valley spreading out to the Bavarian Alps. This is a great place for walkers and lovers of an alpine spa break, but it’s probably best known for its Passion Play, which happens once every ten years, and has been happening since 1634, when the town’s inhabitants promised God that if they were spared from the plague they would produce a place thereafter - and for all time - about the life and death of Jesus. There are around two thousand people involved in the production.  Our pick of the best places to stay in Oberammergau is a luxurious alpine style property right in the centre of town - perfect for a romantic escape in summer or winter.

For Alpine luxury

  • Hotel Maximilian is a five star option in the centre of the town. It's a pampering stay which ever season you choose to visit, with an onsite spa and gourmet restaurant specialising in Mediterranean cuisine.
