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 wide range of retail outlets and restaurants, numerous town festivals and a wide range of cultural and sporting activities round off the opportunities for recreation and leisure.
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 even more of a highlight. Under the motto "Greven to the Ems!", many visitors use the Ems floodplain as an action area and meeting place.
For canoeists, canoe tours on the E ms are a real highlight. The varied Ems floodplain and park landscape, with a dense network of charming cycle routes such as the Ems Cycle Path and the Peace Route, as well as the nature-protected Ems, invite visitors to actively enjoy their leisure time.
The quaint village of Greven-Gimbte attracts many day-trippers with its cultivated country gastronomy, while in Greven-Reckenfeld the performances of the open-air theatre delight many thousands of visitors every year. Excursions to the historic Sachsenhof farm or through the worthwhile natural landscape of the Rieselfelder fields should be on every visitor's itinerary.
