Nussbaumen–Kartause Ittingen Weg

Nussbaumen–Kartause Ittingen Weg

On this route you feel as though you are completely alone. You cross fields, forests and make your way alongside three lakes – an authentic «pure nature» experience. The crowning highlight is the Kartause Ittingen in Warth.
The route starts in Nussbaumen and leads over paths set in the middle of the fields and forests in this wide plain. You travel at a leisurely pace through stunning scenery and soon reach the three lakes. The untouched lake shores have many hidden spots that offer an invitation to rest and relax in the fresh air.

This is an ideal stretch to tank up on energy and enjoy peace and quiet. In many places you'll discover small, romantic walkways jutting out of the water. You'll spot the ruins of a former Roman castle on a hill at the edge of the Hüttwilersee lake. This is soon followed by a breathtaking view over the Thurtal valley in Warth.

The final highlight is the Kartause Ittingen. The areal of this former Carthusian monastery makes a fitting finale to this route, whether with a pleasant time in the restaurant or a tour around the enchanting monastery garden. It's also worth visiting the converted monastery. The Kartause has something to suit every taste.
