We walked all over and this building is the best. It has the painting of The Passions of Christ. We enjoyed our day in Oberammergau and would definitely travel there again and take friends or family.

The outside paintings...More

This is just one of the famous houses of Oberammergau with its exterior frescos. The painting represents Jesus before Pilate. All the painted buildings are worth seeing; just stroll through the town.

Here you can see the famous woodworkers at their craft. Great pride in their work. Of course, the acclaimed painted exterior is what draws many people, but be sure to step inside.
