The famous Overammergau ‘Passionsspiele’ or Passion Play, has been performed every ten years since 1633, a time when the Thirty Year’s War and Bubonic Plague were ravaging Europe.
The town pledged that if God wold spare them from further suffering and death, they would perform a play each decade in tribute to the Passion of Christ. The first play was performed during Pentecost in 1634, where a stage was erected in the local cemetery.
