Ittingen Charterhouse is a former Carthusian monastery in the Swiss canton of Thurgau. Today it is a cultural and seminar centre with two museums, a hotel, a restaurant, an estate business and assisted working and living facilities for people with mental or cognitive impairments.

Unlike other monastery complexes, Ittingen is not designed as a complete complex. Ittingen Charterhouse, as it presents itself today, is the result of constant structural changes and adaptations to the respective needs over the course of more than 900 years.
