Catholic Central Europe with Oberammergau - Faith-Based Travel

9 Day Tour Munich to Frankfurt

Vacation Overview

On this faith-based tour through Central Europe, visit some of Central Europe’s most important cathedrals and pilgrimage sites, and witness some of its most striking scenery. Plus, enjoy first-class seats to Oberammergau’s Passion Play, performed every 10 years by Oberammergau residents as a thank you for saving the town from the Black Death. With beautiful alpine scenery as the backdrop, it is nothing short of spectacular!

Highlights of this Central Europe tour include visits to some of the region’s most significant churches and cathedrals. Visit the pilgrimage church in Wies, a Rococo masterpiece and UNESCO World Heritage Site dating to the 1740s set in a gorgeous alpine setting. In Trier, another UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the oldest cities north of the Alps, visit the High Cathedral of St. Peter. This UNESCO World Heritage Site dating to the 4th century is Germany’s oldest bishop’s church. In Aachen, visit Northern Europe’s oldest cathedral, dating to 803 AD. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the burial place of Charlemagne, the church used for the coronation of German kings and queens, and still a pilgrimage church. Visit the Benedictine Abbey of Einsiedeln, one of Switzerland’s most important pilgrimage sites and renowned for its black Madonna carved in the 15th century.

You’ll also witness stunning scenery on this Central Europe tour. Marvel at Rhine Falls, Europe’s biggest falls, and enjoy a cruise along the most scenic part of the Rhine River. Stop in the Black Forest with beautiful forests of thick pine trees.

This is just a sampling of the many highlights of this Catholic Central Europe with Oberammergau tour. It’s a dream vacation!
