Nancy Cassano
Nancy Cassano
Chief Bucket List Concierge™

In 2020, from May through early October, the world-famous Passion Play returns to the little Bavarian town of Oberammergau, Germany. This moving reenactment of the crucifixion of Christ, from the Last Supper to His Resurrection, has been a tradition since 1634 in thanksgiving for sparing the town from the ravages of a plague.

Please give us a call at 804-557-3006, especially if you wish to organize a church group tour.

General admission tickets are now available. However, major tour companies and cruise lines have already been given limited access to the Play. Some suppliers are selling tours at fixed prices, including premium tickets to the Play. Dates are selling out quickly.

We have 17 suggestions of outstanding land tours that include an overnight at Oberammergau for the Passion Play.

Please call us today at 804-557-3006 to discuss which tour best fits your interests, schedule and budget.

Christmas Market Escorted Tours and Cruises

”DSC_0652.JPG”

The Sights, Sounds and Flavors of an Old-World Christmas

Perhaps its the smell of gingerbread, cloves, cinnamon, oranges and fresh cedar or the sparkle of glass ornaments or the taste of hot Glühwein or simply the excitement of looking for the perfect Christmas decoration. Whatever the reason, Christmas Market cruises and escorted tours sell out early.

Almost every city and town in central Europe, but especially in Bavaria and Austria, host Christmas street markets during December known locally in southern Germany as a Christkindlmarkt [Christ Child Market]. Many can trace their roots back a thousand years.

Most markets open around November 25 and remain open until approximately December 23.

At these open air markets you will find many handcrafted items, toys, food, drink, Christmas decorations and tree ornaments.

Each country has its own flair and the markets reflect these various customs. Most tours and cruises will take you to major markets in Germany, Austria, Czech Republic and even Hungary so you can experience the local flavor and various customs.

Below are our recommended tours with prices for 2016 and 2017 escorted tours and 2016 river cruises.

Call for Prices. Tours are priced per person, double occupancy, land only. Prices are subject to change and tours do sell-out quickly. Please call us at 804-557-3006 or toll-free 855-462-8253 for child, single and triple rates
