The passion Play of Erl in Tyrol (Austria) is the oldest passion play in the German speaking countries. Documents prove that already in 1613 pilgrims on their way to Altötting made a stop in Erl to see a passion play.
Again in 2025, 600 out of the 1,450 inhabitants from Erl will be on stage to illustrate the life, death, and the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Of course actors, choir, and orchestra will be live on stage. The Erl Passion Play Theater has seats for 1,500 visitors.
