Important Notice

The 42nd Oberammergau Passion Play will be postponed due to the current situation caused by the corona pandemic. The basis for this is a decision of the district administration of Garmisch-Partenkirchen, which prohibits the performance of the event planned from 16.05.2020 to 04.10.2020. The health of our guests and participants is our highest priority, therefore the responsible persons have decided to postpone the premiere of the Passion Play to 2022. 

 


 

DEAR GUESTS

we regret this development very much, but we also take the concern for the Corona virus very seriously and can therefore fully understand this cancellation – your health and that of our other guests and employees has priority!

If you have already made a booking, we will contact you in the next few days.

We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience and wish you and your loved ones all the best for the future – stay healthy!

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

 

With best regards
Your Orangerie by Käfer team

INDULGE THE SENSES WITH KÄFER

103 performance dates between 16 May and 4 October 2020, and a theatre with a capacity of 4,500 – during the 42nd Passion Play, Oberammergau becomes a destination for almost half a million people from all around the world. These visitors can expect not only a unique theatre experience, but also exceptional, innovative drinks and cuisine by Käfer.

Local and seasonal – that is our guiding principle! We source the produce for all our delicious dishes from first-class suppliers in the Bavarian Alps who, over the years, have become more like friends than business partners. Regionality, seasonality, freshness and short transport distances are very important to us – because these are the key ingredients of great food. Using produce delivered fresh daily, we cook from scratch every day – as you can tell from the taste and aroma!

So, come and join us and enjoy an unforgettable 2020 Oberammergau Passion Play season.  Not long to go now... 

Die ORANGERIE by Käfer

THE RESTAURANT – THE CENTRE OF THE ACTION

The light-flooded restaurant is the beating heart of Die Orangerie by Käfer, and is a focal point for Passion Play visitors who want to enjoy culinary indulgence in close proximity to the theatre. This is a place where French brasserie culture meets Bavarian tradition – in our restaurant you can enjoy simple, fresh dishes from the region as well as French classics in the special ambience of Die Orangerie. The restaurants menu has something to delight everyone’s palate – featuring crisp, hearty flammkuchen (tarte flambée) topped with regional delicacies from the Ammergau Alps, classics such as steak tartare from local beef, marinated char, and Käfer’s patisserie highlights.

For lunch we serve fresh, light dishes, and in the evenings, for a more substantial dinner, you can choose between a set 3-course meal or something from a small à la carte menu.

STREET STALL & LOUNGE

AN INDULGENT INTERVAL  

The range of food and drink that we serve revolves around the seemingly ordinary, yet perfectly executed. Our interval refreshments include hearty handmade rolls and artisan bread filled with regional ham and cheese specialities, flammkuchen (tarte flambée), Käfer’s popular Alpine pizza, and fresh cakes and pastries such as waffles and Bavarian ‘Auszogne’ doughnuts.

There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy these – at the street stall on the theatre forecourt, or in our interval bar or lounge area. We work quickly and efficiently so that you can make the most of the short interval and enjoy your snacks and drinks in a relaxed atmosphere.

 

Ammergauer Haus

FINE DINING JUST A STONE’S THROW AWAY

The revered Ammergauer Haus is located a mere 400 metres away from the Passion Play Theatre. Open daily, the cosy dining room and our dinner salon are perfect places to relax during the interval and savour our exclusive theatre menu made from the finest fresh, local ingredients.

We extend a warm welcome to groups, as well as to individual diners. In line with our philosophy – come in, feel at home and enjoy – we serve an attractively priced set menu including drinks.

 

We will be delighted to help!
