Oberammergau trip from Scotland

I would be interested to hear from anyone who has managed to book a trip from Scotland to this year`s Passion Play in Oberammergau. My husband and I wanted to fly from either Glasgow or Edinburgh but can`t find a company organising a trip from Scotland. I have gone on to the Oberammergau website to try and purchase tickets direct but the pdf file is so small and blurred I can`t make out the information on it. I have sent emails but got no reply it is so frustrating. I have a list of the official tour companies but they are mainly for group bookings/coach parties from England; Ireland and Wales. There surely must be other couples or single persons from Scotland wanting to make the trip but how do we arrange it? Any info or hints would be most helpful.

Hi Silversands,

Until you hear from someone with recent personal experience, maybe this will help.

I'm not sure which website you've been investigating, but there is no pdf file at the site I normally use. If you like, you can book only the hotel and play tickets through them, and then arrange your flight into München and train travel on your own. Here is a link:

oberammergau-passion.com/en-gb/how-to-book/e…

Then click on the option for "1 or 2 night packages."

Anyway, have fun!

Thank you, but this is the site I have been trying and they have nothing for either 2 days duration or for 7 days duration from Scotland and when I go further into the site to try and book tickets only it is the pdf file which wont down load for some reason. I have sent two emails but received no reply. There just doesn`t seem to be any way to get there from Scotland with an organised tour and no place to buy tickets because I considered flying to Munich and hiring a car but there is no point if I can`t be assured will get tickets. I just hope someone comes up with some info that may help.

Hello, you can go to Munich all by yourself but first you must assure yourself of the tickets for the play. So you can book a 2 day all inclusive tour that will include the tickets for the play, accomodation for 2 nights, all the food during these stays, and a return train ticket from Munich to Oberammergau. Then you can plan the rest of your stay according to your likes and means. Otherwise I guess it would be rather difficult to get tickets for the play. Here is the link for you to buy this inclusive tour:

We have just finalised our booking using this website, it does seem that the last tickets are now going very fast - it may be worth giving them a number of dates, also if you download the order form and fax it asap, they will be able to confirm once you have agreed a date. We only faxed payment details once we had agreed a date, and lost our first preferred booking date! Bearing in mind how busy they must be, and that bookings have been taken since 2008 I think, they were briskly patient!

Delighted to say we have now booked our flights to Munich and our accommodation with tickets for the Passion Play. Tripadvisors has came up trumps again! Thank you to all who responded to my initial query.
