Oberammergau Passion Play 

Every ten years since 1634, a remarkable event occurs in the Alpine town of Oberammergau, Germany; the whole community is involved in staging a six hour long passion play. So long is the play that a meal is served during its intermission.

Thousands of visitors flock to Oberammergau, to attend one of the performances during the summer months and hotel - ticket packages are available. Next year's play runs from May 15 until October 3, 2010, after which the play will not be staged again until May 2020.
