Ittinger Museum

The Ittingen Museum is at the heart of Ittingen Charterhouse.
It is dedicated to the monastery’s history and the
Carthusian order. Frescoes in the Rococo church tell the
story of Saint Bruno, the order’s 11th century founder. The
spare cells continue to breathe the monks' silent and solitary
quest for God. In contrast, a billard table in the Chapterhouse
evokes the monastery's dissolution in 1848 and
its subsequent use as an imposing secular country estate
by the Fehr family. Each monk tended a small garden outside his cell, growing
healing herbs, flowers and other plants. Today, historic garden features
collide and interact with modern types of cultivation. Embark
on a leisurely journey to discover a unique combination
of agriculture, ornamental and kitchen gardens, four
self-guided garden trails and over one thousand rose trees
and bushes in Switzerland's biggest historic rose garden.
