Kartause Ittingen is a highly attractive destination, not least because of its magnificent gardens, top-class concerts and excellent exhibitions.
At Ittingen Museum you can experience the almost completely preserved monastery up close and personal. Established in 1983 by Dr. Margrit Früh, the then curator of the Museum of History Thurgau, Ittingen Museum is one of six museums run by the Canton of Thurgau.
Thurgau Art Museum
The museum presents outstanding works of contemporary art by international artists. An impressive collection of naïve art and art brut has been built around the works by Adolf Dietrich, one of the leading painters of 20th century Swiss art. Some exhibition halls are located in the cellars of the former monastery. The building’s past is always present, generating a special atmosphere that influences the way the visitors interact with the works of art.
The wonderful 25th Ittingen Whitsun Concerts with the artistic director Nicolas Altstaedt are a thing of the past. The Whitsun Concerts 2020 (from 29 May to 1 June), for which the German-French cellist would have honoured us once again, unfortunately had to be cancelled due to the decision of the Federal Council. We are very happy that Nicolas Altstaedt is pleased to postpone his exceptionally exciting program "Autonomia" until Whitsun 2023.
In addition to the Pentecost Concerts, the Ittingen Sunday Concerts offer top-class chamber music with five concerts during the winter semester featuring first-class soloists and ensembles. With the Remise, Ittingen Charterhouse has a concert hall that meets even the highest acoustic demands.
Tecum – Centre for Spirituality, Education and Community Building
Tecum is an independent institution of ecclesiastical adult education supported by the Evangelical Regional Church of the Canton of Thurgau and the association tecum. Tecum shapes the former monastery’s spiritual life by combining old and new into contemporary Christian spirituality.
