From contemplative monastery to attraction worth visiting

Welcome to the former Aggsbach Charterhouse!

A charterhouse refers to a monastery of the Carthusian Order. The name of the Order dates back to the geographical name ‘cartusia’, the Latin term for the Chartreuse Mountains in south-eastern France, north of Grenoble. In a remote side valley, Bruno of Cologne, founder of the Order, built the first hermitage in 1084, from which the motherhouse of the Carthusian Order emerged, La Grande Chartreuse.
