WHITE CHRISTMAS IN OBERAMMERGAU
21-26 December, 2016
The charming village of Oberammergau lies in the Ammer Valley in southern Bavaria, and is renowned for the Passion Play that has been performed here every 10 years since 1633. The town is also known for its wood carvings, a trade that evolved when the village was "quarantined" during the Black Plague, and locals whittled away on wood to pass the time.... Christmas is a special time in Oberammergau, with the village lit up with yuletide decorations and the stores all showing their Christmas ornamentation. We have selected Oberammergau as another great destination in Germany to celebrate a White Christmas. Skiers might like to visit nearby Garmisch-Partenkirchen, or you can spend the days visiting the Royal Castles of Bavarian: Neuschwanstein and Linderhof.
