Oberammergau is a municipality in the district of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, in Bavaria, Germany. The town is famous for its production of a Passion Play, its woodcarvers, and the NATO school.
The Oberammergau Passion Play was first performed in 1634 and is the result of a vow made by the inhabitants of the village that if God spared them from the effects of the bubonic plague then sweeping the region they would perform a passion play every ten years. The play is now performed in years ending with a zero, as well as in 1934 which was the 300th anniversary and 1984 which was the 350th anniversary (though the 1940 performance was cancelled because of the intervention of the Second World War). It involves over 2000 actors, singers, instrumentalists and technicians, all residents of the village.
Oberammergau Passion Play 2010
About half the inhabitants of Oberammergau took part in the once-a-decade Passion Play in 2010.
This means that over 2,000 villagers brought the story of Jesus to life for the audiences that flocked in from around the world. The play started with Jesus entering Jerusalem, continued with his death on the cross and finished with the resurrection. As ever, this was an extraordinary community enterprise, in which only natives of the village could participate.
2010 saw a new production directed by Oberammergau native Christian Stückl, director at Munich's noted Volkstheater. He was supported by the artistic team that along with him staged the 2000 Passion Play: deputy director and dramatic adviser Otto Huber, set and costume designer Stefan Hageneier and music director Marxus Zwink and conductor Michael Bocklet - all from Oberammergau. The play started each day at 14.30 and including a three-hour supper interval ended at 22.30: an innovation, since previous productions had been performed in the morning and afternoon with a break for lunch. Performances took place between mid-May and early October 2010.

Amitiés et bonne journée.

Dobar dan, popodne.
Interesantan tekst o opstini sa istorijom i opisom, lep pogled na staru arhitekturu ...
Dobar trenutak snimka i kontrast, lepo pokazana arhitektura i detalji na fasadi.
Lepo mesto da se odmori i popije hladno pice.
Lepo popodne i sve nabolje.

Rain with lyrics
With plenty of gems.
There on the roof of the house
I remember a rainy day meal
Roll a long day
Nice and sweet
Into the forests of Gilan
I was ten years old child
Soft and thin
Nimble and agile
With two feet of children
Such chased deer
Jumped on the lips atmospheric
Searched around the house
I heard the birds
The inside story
Of lips, inflated, blower
Mysteries of life
It was very refreshing rain
Oh, how beautiful is the rain
I heard this gem volcanic involved
Secrets of eternal, heavenly advice
Hear me, my child
The eyes of the man of tomorrow
Life, whether bright or dark
Is beautiful, is beautiful, is beautiful
Beautiful View of a Rainy Day
all the best

παρόλο που τα χαρακτηριστικά της πόλης είναι συναρπαστικά, η παρουσία του ποδηλάτη είναι επίσης ευχάριστη καθώς προσφέρει χρώμα και ζωντάνια στη μουντή μέρα. Μου αρέσει πολύ η ιδέα να διασχίζει κανείς με ποδήλατο ένα τόσο όμορφο και γραφικό μέρος όπου υπάρχουν ενδιαφέρουσες λεπτομέρειες σε κάθε γωνιά. Διαχειρίστηκες τον χαμηλό φωτισμό, την κίνηση, το βάθος και τα χρώματα με εξαιρετικό τρόπο. Συγχαρητήρια και ευχαριστώ!
Να είσαι καλά, καλό σου βράδυ,

Interesting somewhat gloomy scene, hooded bicyclist, classical Oberammergau hotel architecture, especially the artwork on the window shutters.
Perhaps a good place for Richard Wagner's "Parsifal"?
Thanks for sharing,

Great shot of the cyclist and the passion play venue.Excellent presentation.Very well done.TFS.
papagolf21 (90576) 2014-06-18 11:23
Bonsoir, cher ami Danos,
La pluie donne une touche très agréable à la composition. De plus, ces façades peintes et calligraphiées sont de toute beauté.
Le cycliste avec son k-way rouge offre une bien jolie tache de couleur.
Très bonne soirée.

Une belle prise de vue de cette auberge typique avec un beau parterre de fleurs devant et sous la pluie avec le sol qui brille, cela donne un bel effet
holmertz (45297) 2014-06-18 11:39
You were not lucky with the weather, but the spectacular façade of the building, and the bright cyclist who happened to move past very conveniently, make us forget that the sky is so dull and grey. This is a cheerful photo from a rainly day.
Fis2 (90111) 2014-06-18 13:32
Good POV and composition.
I like colors.
Cyclist add savor of composition.
abmdsudi (46936) 2014-06-18 14:24
It's unpromising and almost muted day no doubt but the touch of red brings lots of live complemented the beautiful buildings behind. Nicely composed with good positioning, Well done. tfs

ricordo molto bene questa città, i suoi dipinti sono molto belli e la "Passione" fa parte della vita di questa popolazione.
Credo che abbiamo fatto lo stesso itinerario e rivivo molto volentieri quei momenti attraverso le tue foto.

A rainy day can't spoil the beauty of this region, and in particular, a shot like this. Classic styling from Oberammergau, and presented to be picture perfect...despite nature not cooperating with the weather. :)Great idea to include the bicyclist, adding an idea of motion, and a burst of color. This really speaks well to the locale, it's easy to understand why it's popular. Simply beautiful! Enjoy the new day. All the best.
emka (86577) 2014-06-18 23:33
Good morning Danos,
Although it is rainy day and the sky is totally washed, still very attractive presentation of tho famous painted facxade from Oberammergau. The biker in red jacket enlives the scene.
WArm regards Malgo

Splendid photo of typical, nicely decorated Bavarian house. The cyclist adds nice life to the scene. Even the rainy atmosphere , the light is very good, colors nicely balanced.
Very well done.

Γεια σου Δάνο,
πολύ ωραίο δείγμα της τοπικής αρχιτεκτονικής η φωτογραφία σου,
μου αρέσει επίσης που περίμενες να συμπεριλάβεις τον ποδηλάτη στο πρώτο πλάνο του κάδρου,
jmdias (58984) 2014-06-19 3:12
very nice angle catching the façade and the flowers with the biker adding life and movement to the scenery. the adornments of the façade are impressive. TFS.
pierrefonds (60434) 2014-06-19 4:24
The presence of the cyclist is adding lige to the scene. The point of view is showing the details and the colors of the hotel. The rainy weather is giving a good contrast to the colors. Have a nice day.
jhm (144318) 2014-06-19 4:27
What a bad weather for to make these nice picture, the biker fits perfect on these picture and gives more enthusiasm.
A splendid facade typical German
Nice panorama view about these area.

Have a nice day,
Sergiom (67528) 2014-06-19 5:47
La preuve que l'on peut faire de la belle photo même quand il pleut. Le cycliste est parfaitement placé dans l'image et la maison est superbe en arrière plan.
geoant68 (331) 2014-06-19 8:03
Δάνο γεια σου,
το ζωγραφισμένο κτήριο του χωριού είναι εντυπωσιακό,παρά τις αντίξοες καιρικές συνθήκες που αντιμετώπισες κατά την διάρκεια της λήψης.Ο ποδηλάτης είναι μια ευχάριστη νότα στο στιγμιότυπο,
ikeharel (63019) 2014-06-19 8:37
A hotel building from the fairy-tales, Danos. Beautiful and impressive even in German standards - to my humble opinion.
marvelousely taken the moment when the man in red rode his bikes through, and the rainy day even added a fine ambiance to the whole.
Excelent photojob done, under your umbrella, I guess.
fritzi007 (8709) 2014-06-19 10:01
wirklich ein super Foto, sehr gut gemacht, gratuliere dir!
gildasjan (42520) 2014-06-19 11:13
Très belle image bien composée de cette place avec ce cycliste bien cadré.Il est juste un peu dommage que ce ciel soit si blanc mais on ne peut pas maitriser la météorologie.
jacquest (18871) 2014-06-19 11:54
The rainy weather brings out colors and the sharpness does not suffer from the white sky. I like the architecture of this small hotel. The cyclist with the red coat is well placed in the image and it looks like it is not today he will sit on this terrace and sip a beer.
imageme (1790) 2014-06-19 12:51
Hi Danos, Details note on the passion play in Oberammegau. The hotel provides a great BG for the cyclist in red. The rain gives nice reflection on the road. Excellent composition along with geometric lines brought by the shapes of the windows. Great details and nice light. Best regards
Sonata11 (33697) 2014-06-19 18:36
Hi Danos, such a very beautiful place, impressive architecture with so many beautiful details. Wonderfully composed image. Like it. a lot. Best regards, Barbara

Glint (6171) 2014-06-21 10:15
you have found and attractive looking hotel to photograph. Even in the rain it looks inviting -somewhere to go to shelter and have a nice beer. Good that you captured the cyclist as he rides into the frame. The splash of red is good compositionally and the cyclist gives dof too.
omid266 (6700) 2014-06-22 20:35
Salam , Hi Danos,

** Have nice moments,**
Apurba20 (984) 2014-06-25 2:12
That is an extraordinary story. It is remarkable the way people are striving to keep the traditions going, in spite of modernism bringing in its own nuances.
Loved the building. Everything is so artistic about it.
Have a great day!
Kamilutka (8105) 2014-06-25 5:04
I was ready to comment on your newest photo but then I spotted this one in your gallery and couldn't resist it. I like it a lot for very well organized composition and loads of colorful bits which bring some much life and cheerfulness to this rainy day. The facade of the hotel is especially pretty and the person on the bicycle appeared just in time to add some nice human element to the image.
Well done and thanks for sharing
Gigidusud (18065) 2014-06-26 8:30
Superbe cette architecture, bien vu l'inclusion du cycliste en rouge. J'aime beaucoup!
elenimavrandoni (14209) 2014-06-27 8:43
Δάνο, σαν τα παραμυθια....ολα τοσο ομορφα φτιαγμένα και περιποιημένα πάντα μου αρεσε να βλέπω τα χωριά στην Γερμανία, τοσο πολύ παραδοσιακά και γεματα με χαριτωμένες λεπτομέρειες...τελικά αυτες οι λεπτομέρειες ειναι που κανουν τήν διαφορά..συννεφια και βροχη αλλά η φωτογραφια σου λάμπει...
εφτασε η χαρη μου ως εδω που θάλεγε και η μάνα μου...μια αξέχαστη εμπειρία ειναι και αυτη!!
mcmtanyel (16719) 2014-06-27 16:48
They are either expecting the rain not to last or did not expect it at all because all the outside tables are ready. Nice and colorful photo despite the rain, i hope you had some sunshine, too.
nikkitta (16836) 2014-06-27 18:57
I like when a photographer is creative and in spite of raining compose a good capture
