In 2010 Vered HaSharon arranged for 120 groups from South Africa, the Philippines, Norway, Singapore and the USA to visit the picturesque Bavarian village of Oberammergau. These groups, consisting a total of approximately 5,000 people, attended the outstanding unique local production of the Passion Play. The play, which depicts the life and death of Jesus, takes place in this ancient village once every 10 years.
Prior to the event, Vered HaSharon had tour operators on the ground in Oberammergau to personally ensure quality and standard. The operators examined the hotels, located the best tour guides who possess extensive knowledge of the region around Oberammergau and booked them for the upcoming trips. The company organized and booked all hotel accommodation and arranged all the ticketing for the Passion Play as well as arranging buses for transportation to and from the Play and for touring the region.
A number of groups also stayed a few extra days, exploring the charming village with its many attractions and the surrounding area offering beautiful scenery such as the Zugspitze Mountain resort, the magnificent Riessersee Lake which has previously been used for the winter Olympics speed skating events, the Castle Linderhof and the world famous Neuschwanstein Castle as well as the Ettal monastery.
