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


The monastery, dedicated to Our Lady, was founded in 1453 by the knight Balthasar Fere vom Berge and his wife Magdalena von Vestenberg.

It was dissolved in 1803 in the secularisation of Bavaria.

The property was purchased by Baron Friedel, who installed a cheese factory and a sugar factory in the premises. In 1836 there were still remains of the monastery church, but these have disappeared. On the site of the charterhouse a hunting lodge was later constructed.
