Welcome to the Kulturbüro Gronau!

Our work in the cultural office is characterised by a great variety of programmes and a wide range of activities behind the scenes. Whether concerts, theatre performances or lectures, there is something for every taste. With great commitment, we organise special formats such as the Night Insights with spectacular light installations, cultural events at various venues or the regular Gronau Poetry Slam.

And yet the heart of the city beats especially for music – Gronau is and remains the city of music in the countryside.

We are already counting down to the next Jazzfest:

Gronau is not only the birthplace of Udo Lindenberg, the location of the unique rock’n’pop museum and the annual venue of the international jazz festival. Gronau’s cultural life is lively and varied, with a large number of committed creative people and a wide range of associations.

Not only music plays a big role in Gronau. For many years there have also been countless plays, poetry slam events and many other stunning cultural highlights to experience.


In addition to the rock’n’popmuseum and the Drilandmuseum, Gronau is characterized by a small but very committed artistic scene, which presents itself in changing projects and exhibitions.

Enabling children and young people to access and participate in cultural activities is an important part of our work, e.g. through cooperation with schools and daycare centers as well as an open offer at our youth centers.

And also the youth centers of our city and the rock’n’popmuseum offer a wide range of creative activities, just have a look.

In cooperation with Aschendorff Medien and the Kulturbüro, the Gronau Magazin offers many interesting reports about upcoming events, as well as the event calendar and informs about the cultural life in our city.

This year, Gronau will again award the Heimatpreis, which is endowed with € 5,000.00. All information about the conditions of participation can be found here.

The music town of Gronau is characterised above all by a lively club life. Numerous choirs, bands and music groups and not least the music initiative MIG 90 as an umbrella organisation of local amateur bands make their voluntary contribution to a colourful cultural life and make Gronau what it is.
We present you here the individual cultural associations, choirs and chapels.
