Globus has released a special brochure dedicated to its 14 packages featuring visits to Oberammergau, Germany in 2020 for a performance of the renowned Passion Play, which is presented every 10 years.
“Globus has been hosting travellers in Europe for almost 90 years and we are the only tour company to have a dedicated faith-based travel division, so we are a great choice when it comes to experiencing Oberammergau,” says Stéphanie Bishop, managing director for Globus in Canada.
The company’s packages range from seven to 14 days and all include a premier location ticket for the play. These escorted motorcoach tours will visit Germany in depth, or take travellers to other countries as well, such as Switzerland, Austria and Italy.
Several of the tours – unique to Globus – are faith-based, such as the Cathedral Tour of Central Europe, the Shrines of Alpine Europe and the European Reformation tour. Others combine the Oberammergau experience with some of Globus’ most popular itineraries, such as The Best of Switzerland. There’s an escorted itinerary with Globus’ value-brand Cosmos (The Shrines of Alpine Europe and Oberammergau, from $2,273 plus airfare), and even a tour which includes a week-long cruise on the Rhine river with Avalon Waterways, another sister company to Globus (from $6,038, plus airfare).
“We have just the right selection for Canadians interested in Oberammergau,” adds Bishop. “From those who wish a full immersive experience and to reconnect with their faith to those simply intrigued by the history and tradition of the performance, you can trust Globus to deliver a memorable experience.”
Prices for the Globus tours start at $2,999 (plus airfare). The company also features special rates for church and other groups.
