  • Mauerbach in the Western Wienerwald located 1314 was mentioned for the first time, the founding of the Mauerbach Charterhouse goes back to the year 1342. The Carthusian order founded is stated with 1084, the mother monastery is La Grande Chartreuse. The monastery during the Turkish siege in 1529 and 1683 strongly pulled in Mittleidenschaft and was then renovated. in 1782 the monastery was used as a hospital and is in the possession of the Republic of Austria (Federal Monument Office) since 1970. The characteristic of the Carthusian monasteries is that all rooms through a (square) cloister with each other are connected. Impress is the at the heart of this renovated Hall church with striking hipped roof; a high altar painting depicting Mary's assumption is located inside the Church. The courtyard fountain, Eagle gate and gate of Emperor blend harmoniously into the overall picture of the system.

  • A very nice monastery which is easily reachable from Vienna on public transport. You can visit almost whole however there is no or a small Guide and few indications only in German language. In the Vienna Tourism Office for access and scheduling information was erroneous. In the refectory are over 30 pictures of so many other charterhouses.
