Boundless: Welcome to the Three-Country Lake in Gronau

It connects the Netherlands, Lower Saxony and North Rhine-Westphalia: the Dreiländersee in Gronau, which invites you to linger across the borders!

For years, the 28ha lake has had top marks in bathing water quality. As an official EC bathing water, it is also regularly inspected and monitored by the health authorities.

The popularity of Gronau’s Dreiländersee is not only due to the excellent water quality, but also to the extensive range of leisure activities on offer: Whether playing miniature golf, sailing, horseback riding, hiking, living or relaxing – the Dreiländersee is always a recommendable address for a weekend trip or a short visit for guests from near and far.
