In the middle of nature - walks and hikes from Kartause Ittingen
Walking along the cloister to the monastery church was very important for the Carthusian monks The Sunday walk, on the other hand, was for relaxation, as they felt "uplifted and revitalized by the sweetness of the solitude and the beauty of the fields" - according to the statutes of the Carthusian Order. The former monastery complex and its surroundings are an invitation to walk and hike. Whether on the way on various theme paths through the gardens or on a walk through the Ittingen forest, through the vineyards, across meadows and fields to the nearby Thur or to the lake "Nussbaumersee", the movement revives the senses, does good and makes a visit to Kartause Ittingen a holistic experience.
