The Music City in Münsterland


  • Gronau, the border town in the countryside, offers a varied programme for music fans, cyclists, nature lovers and culture enthusiasts. In Gronau, a holiday in the Münsterland can be extended to a stay abroad.

Surrounded by water and lush greenery

Here in the border region, where landscape lakes, river courses and water ponds characterise the overall picture, the natural scenery is particularly varied and merges smoothly with the Netherlands. Whether natural, renaturalised or newly created for the LANDESGARTENSCHAU 2003: "Experience" it yourself on cycle tours on this side and the other side of the city border. For example, on the Dinkelstein Route with its monumental sculptures made of Ibbenbüren sandstone or the Flamingo Route on the trail of numerous nature reserves.

From Jazz to Rock & Pop - Gronau is a City of Music

While local recreation areas such as the Dreiländersee lake attract water sports enthusiasts and nature lovers, the legendary Gronau Jazz Festival, numerous music and cultural events and, of course, Europe's only house of rock and pop history, the Rock'n'popmuseum, attract music fans. The Rock'n'Popmuseum in Gronau is known far beyond the borders of Münsterland, not least because of its numerous concerts. Immerse yourself in this distinctive cultural landscape.
