Grenowe's stories


The special acting tour of Gronau

Between strong women and Gronau stories, between vivid truths and fabricated lies: Once upon a time…

…Grenowe! It tells stories, not history. She ran with Erna through the fields and who knows whom she knew…

Experience an acting tour of a special kind with Grenowe! During the 1.5 hours you will get to know the city in a completely new way – a little whimsical, a little crazy – but definitely entertaining, special and with lots of lively and spun stories!
