Oberammergau Passion Play

It is adviseable to take a torch with you when going to see the Passion Play to be able to follow the script.There is no other lighting at night apart from the stage area.

What is the seating like at the Passion Play -- just benches? Can "seat backs" be rented? Thanks for your help.

They are individual seats (not benches) and there are seat backs. They are not the most comfortable but they are not that bad. There is some leg room but think more along the lines of economy class in an airplane as opposed to first or business class. The seating area gradually rises and since the stage is quite large and wide, there is really no "bad" seat in the house.

Pay close attention to the weather forecast for the day you watch. It can get chilly during the second part of the performance once the sun has gone down.
