Art and culture

Vreden has culture,  Vreden makes culture!

In and around Vreden  cultural life is increasing and you wouldn`t expect a town of that size to have such a big offer of cultural activities.

"Die Hockende"

Here tradition meets modern art and culture.  Contemporary culture with all its institutions and events completes the different statements of the past in harmony.


Take for example the music school and the “Scherenschnittmuseum” (a museum for the art of cutting paper) in the old historic town hall. In addition,  there are different choirs and music groups and bands which offer a varied programme every year.

And then there is the programme offered by the VHS and the public library, the exhibitions of the “Kunst- und Kulturverein Berkelkraftwerk e.V” and the numerous sculptures in town. Cultural diversity is beautifully presented here in Vreden.

But this is not all: The concerts taking place at the magnificent baroque church in Zwillbrock with its slider chest organ of 1720 mark a special highlight.


With “kult” a new cultural institution is developing as a regional competence centre which accelerates in a very professional way the development and continuation  of offers for cultural education in the district of Borken and in addition also in the Münsterland.

The conclusion: Culture really is at home here in Vreden. It is part of our living.
