Upscale guided travel company Tauck introduced the new eight-day journey, Swiss Highlands & Bavarian Alps, with in-depth itineraries to immerse each traveler into the region’s culture. To make this trip the ultimate discovery, Tauck will incorporate the traditional Passion Play, an epic performance held in the alpine village of Oberammergau, Germany, since the early 17th century.

Originally put on just once a decade to be spared from a plague sweeping across Europe in the 1600s, the play depicts the final days of Jesus Christ. Ironically, with a pandemic of our own in the 21st century, the play, scheduled initially for 2020, has been rescheduled to this year.

“After a two-year wait, we’re so excited to showcase the wonder and pageantry of the Passion Play to our guests,” said Jeremy Palmer, chief operating officer, Tauck. “The Passion Play was first inspired by a pandemic, which certainly brings an extra level of meaning and poignancy to the performances our guests will experience later this year.”

In addition to enjoying this unique play, travelers will pass through Bern, St. Gallen and Appenzell. From a locally guided tour of the flower-filled Ronsegarten to a visit to Albert Einstein’s home to a walk through the medieval Habsburg Castle, the eight-day tour leaves nothing out.

Pricing for the new Swiss Highlands & Bavarian Alps tour starts at $5,790 per person. This includes all accommodations, sightseeing, performances, excursions, admission to all attractions and most meals and gratuities.
