(Passion Play in Oberammergau)
“Auf dein Wohl.”
(To your health.)
This special order stein was produced for the world renowned Oberammergau Passion Play, commemorating the final days in the life of Jesus Christ, first performed by the residents of that small Bavarian town in 1634 and repeated, almost without interruption, every ten years since then in the last year of every decade. The play, which runs for about seven hours and involves over 2,000 performers, is now staged repeatedly over a five month period during the years it is produced and attracts around a half-million visitors.
Same model number applied to a stein depicting a Gnome with Ferns and Oak Leaves.
