Running from April to October, Floriade Expo 2022 will include an extensive number of exhibits and events, with the theme of ‘Growing Green Cities’, encompassing green, food, energy and health. 
 
The perfect accompaniment to a truly all-inclusive river cruise, Scenic will host a number of river cruises to coincide with this colourful Expo.

Oberammergau cruises

Join us in Oberammergau for an unforgettable once-in-a-decade performance. 
Scenic is now accepting bookings for the Passion Play 2022 – Oberammergau. In 2022 the community of Oberammergau in Bavaria, Germany, will perform the Passion Play for the 42nd time. 
 
Scenic is inviting you to be part of this unforgettable experience which only occurs once every 10 years. 
 
In 1633, the residents of Oberammergau vowed that if they were spared from the bubonic plague sweeping the region, they would produce a play for all time depicting the life and death of Jesus. 
 
When the death rate began to subside, the villagers decided they had been spared. 
 
The first play was performed in 1634, and it has run ever since - for 388 years. It’s the world’s longest-running play and widely regarded as the most important Passion Play in the world.
