The history of the Passion Play in Oberammergau began almost 400 years ago. The plague raged in many parts of Europe and did not stop at Oberammergau. To put an end to the misery, the people of Oberammergau decided to take a vow. In 1633 they swore to perform the suffering and death of Christ every ten years, provided that no one dies of the plague. The village was heard and so the Oberammergauers played the first Passion Play in 1634. The people of Oberammergau have kept their promise to this day. The 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play will take place from May 14th to October 2nd, 2022.
Germany takes over the G7 Presidency on 1 January 2022 and will host the annual meeting of G7 heads of state and government.
The G7 Summit 2022 will take place from 26 to 28 June 2022 at Schloss Elmau in the Bavarian Alps – as did the last G7 Summit under the German Presidency in June 2015. Schloss Elmau meets all the logistical and security requirements of a G7 Summit venue. With its scenic backdrop, Schloss Elmau has provided an attractive setting for talks and meetings between the heads of state and government in the past. The pandemic measures adopted at state and federal level will apply to all participants during the talks.
