Grünau Charterhouse (Kloster or Kartause Grünau) is a former Carthusian monastery, or charterhouse, in Schollbrunn in Bavaria, Germany.


The monastery, dedicated to the Blessed Virgin Mary, Saint Lawrence and Saint Nicholas, was founded in 1328 by Elisabeth von Hohenlohe, daughter of the Count of Wertheim.

It was dissolved in 1803 in the secularisation of Bavaria.

The premises came into the possession of the Counts of Löwenstein-Wertheim-Freudenberg, who in 1820 converted them into a country house. All that remains of the monastic structures is the prior's lodging, now used for guests, the ruins of the church and the perimeter wall.
