one week visit around Passion Play

We received tickets to the Passion Play. We have limited funds and about 1 week to travel. Where should we go to get the most bang for our buck? Switzerland? N. Italy? Stay in Bavaria?

in Bavaria

I would however not stay too close to Oberammergau for the whole week because of the Passion Play.

E.g. Mittenwald

or more distant places in the Bavarian Alps like

Füssen / the Allgäu

http://www.fuessen.de

http://www.english.allgaeu.info

or the Berchtesgadener Land

Of course there is also Munich and Franconia (northern Bavaria) with its medieval cities and towns.

Currently, I have a 2 nights reservation in Oberammergau that I can cancel. Given your suggestions, would you recommend that we fly into Munich and establish a week-long base in a Bavarian town (other than Oberammergau)?

Flying into Munich: for sure the best option.

Also staying in/near Oberammergau for the Passion Play is a good idea. Thus I would not cancel your reservation there. I just meant don't stay the whole week there as due the Passion Play accomodation in and around Oberammergau is scarce and more expensive.

You can travel from Munich to Oberammergau and to all other places on a Bavaria Ticket (Bayern Ticket). This is a day ticket covering all regional trains and nearly all other local public transport (S-Bahn, U-Bahn, trams, buses) in Bavaria. EUR 28,00 for 2-5 persons. This ticket is valid

Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day

Sa,Su: from midnight till 3am next day

We'll investigate flying into Munich and purchasing the train pass you mentioned. It sounds like the perfect idea for us.

When our Ober. reservation expires (after 2 days), we'd like to move to one accommodation and visit the other places you suggested. Where would you recommend we base the remainder of our stay? Thank you, again, for your time and expertise.
