Ittingen Charterhouse, a former Carthusian monastery in Warth in the canton of Thurgau, has now developed into a multifaceted cultural and seminar center. In addition to two museums, it offers a hotel, a restaurant, a farm as well as care and residential facilities for people with mental or cognitive impairments.
With a history of over 850 years, Ittingen Charterhouse is one of the most important cultural monuments in the region.
Rooted in its monastic past, the Ittingen Charterhouse continues the values of monastic life in a contemporary way: hospitality, education, encounters, care, self-sufficiency, spirituality and the cultivation of culture are the focus.
The Ittinger Museum brings the life of the Carthusian monks to life, while the Thurgau Art Museum introduces visitors to contemporary art.
The diverse gardens, the labyrinth, the culinary delights from the monastery’s own production, the atmospheric garden restaurant and much more make Ittingen Charterhouse a popular destination for excursions and visits.
