Just saw the Passion Play yesterday. It was excellent. Oberammergau is super cute.
Tickets purchased 2018. Arrived the day before the play and left the day after. I stayed at Hotel Wolf, which I really liked. It was 1-2 blocks from the entrance to the play, though there is a less congested entrance another block over. The ticket instructs arrival 1 hour before show time. A pat down is done at the entrance. We reserved dinner the night before and the day of the play when we bought the original tickets. That worked great.
We talked to some folks on the train who bought their tickets last week, so it appears COVID has freed up tickets that would not typically be available.
I see a lot of questions on here about the play… I’m happy to answer what I can!
