Carthusian monastery / Orphanage

The little houses of the austere Carthusian monks have disappeared. But the rest of the ancient monastery is well preserved and has been used as the city’s orphanage since the 1650s. The highlight of our visit is the “Zschekkenbürlinzimmer”, a beautifully panelled guest room from the early 16th century.
