Whether on water or on land: in the heart of the Münsterland, only about 15 km north of Münster, Greven offers varied holiday fun and a high recreation factor. Cycling tours along the Ems cycle path or the Peace Route as well as lively canoe trips on the Ems promise active leisure enjoyment. A diverse retail and gastronomy offer, numerous town festivals and numerous cultural and sports options round off the possibilities for recreation and leisure activities.
The Ems shapes the landscape in Greven. Since 2018, large parts of the river have been taken out of the canalised bed again and renaturalised. This makes canoe tours on the Ems an even greater highlight. Under the motto "Greven to the Ems!", many visitors use the Ems floodplain as an action area and meeting place, for example at the beach bar.
For all those who love the water, canoe tours on the Ems are a must. The varied Ems floodplain and park landscape with a dense network of charming cycle routes, such as the EmsRadweg and the Friedensroute as well as the nature-protected Ems, invite you to active leisure time enjoyment.
With its cultivated country gastronomy, the quaint village of Greven-Gimbte attracts numerous guests, while in Greven-Reckenfeld the performances of the open-air theatre delight many thousands of visitors every year. Excursions to the historic Sachsenhof or through the worthwhile natural landscape of the Rieselfelder fields should be on every programme.
