Oberammergau is in the German state of Bavaria. It is famous for its Passion Play every 10 years as well as the "Luftmalerei" (when they paint mural-type illustrations on their houses and buildings).

Get in

You can reach Oberammergau by train from Munich central station (München Hauptbahnhof), you have to take the train headed to Innsbruck (a regional train that departs on daily basis) and switch trains in the Murnau train station (the train to Oberammergau is the only other train in the station), the trip from Murnau to Oberammergau shouldn't be a problem, since Oberammergau is the last station to be reached.

Get around

Getting around Oberammergau shouldn't be a problem since it's a relativly small town. You can get around (as most locals do) walking, but you can also take the bus (there are a couple of bus stops in town), you could also get around by car, and like most of youth by bicycle.

See

  • Every 10 years, the Passion Play [1] is performed. The next performance will be in 2010.
  • Most of the buildings in Oberammergau have beautifully detailed murals on them, mostly of biblically significant tableaux.
