As the experts in faith-based travel ETS Tours is also pleased to feature a vast range of exclusive, multi-country land tours – including its signature Holy Land programs – showcasing The Oberammergau Passion Play, one of Europe’s greatest pageants and tourism draws.


The world-famous production is traditionally held every 10 years in the German town of Oberammergau, but has been postponed for the past two years, and is now scheduled to commence performances in May of 2022. While planning has been underway for an extensive period of time, travel advisors can still present travel clients with a variety of once-in-a-lifetime travel programs to historical locations that feature this inspired event with ETS Tours.


“It’s no secret that today’s travelers are increasingly seeking personally rewarding, positive experiences.  Faith-based travel delivers these one-of-a-kind, experiences coupled with fellowship connections between travelers and moments to cherish that are often referred to as ‘life-changing’ and ‘unforgettable’ by travelers,” said Joseph Cavarra, President of ETS Tours. “Faith-based travel helps travel advisors build an unparalleled traveler loyalty and affinity within each group that brings them back to travel with you time and time again.”


Known as the experts in faith-based travel established in 1974, ETS Tours has launched a robust webinar-based training program to help travel advisors tap into this $50–$100 billion industry. The next installment of its webinar series offers travel advisors the unique opportunity to learn all about Oberammergau on March 23, 2022 at 3 PM (EST).

More About the Oberammergau Passion Play
Recounting Jesus Christ’s final days on Earth, the dramatic spectacle will be performed 100+ times between mid-May and early October of 2022. The excitement mounts as travelers near the Ammergau Alps and the picture-perfect Bavarian village where the play has been taking place every 10 years since 1634. What is truly unbelievable is that the Passion Play is a local production, performed entirely by amateur actors who have been residents of the village for 20 years or more. When one enters Oberammergau, they notice the hustle and bustle surrounding the village, which prepares diligently for the influx of thousands of daily visitors. The 4,500-seat Passion Play Theater, the largest of its kind in the world, has an open-air stage that holds hundreds of people at a time and a roof that shelters the audience. Seats are set on an incline, so everyone has a good view. The play lasts approximately five hours and is divided into two parts by a three-hour break for eating, relaxing or exploring the village.


Travel advisors can view all Oberammergau travel programs offered by ETS Tours online at Travel opportunities are currently available in June, July, August, and September. Space is limited.
