Via Monachorum - Way of silence
The Via Monachorum, also referred to as “Silentium“ (Path of tranquillity) connects the villages of Unser Frau and Katharinaberg with Karthaus. There was a historic monastery there, founded by the Carthusian monks in the 14th century. Dressed in their white robes, the monks lived in silence. Some large parts of the monastery walls have been preserved, as are the Gothic cloister and the former monastery kitchen. There are a number of plaques along this themed trail with philosophical quotations relating to tranquillity and silence. The trail is signposted using life-sized figures of monks.
