Since you write in German, I guess that you are talking about
Gauss-Krueger here.
You have to create two locations (because each stripe has its
own projection). Then you can reproject (r.proj) the map
of one location into the other, but that can introduce a
positional error. In general it would be better to use another
projection which covers both areas such as LAEA or LCC.
There are official LAEA and LCC definitions for Europe:


To easily generate this:
#LCC: Within a GRASS location (needs >= GRASS 6.2.x):
  g.proj -c proj4='+init=epsg:3034' location=eu_lcc

#LAEA: Within a GRASS location (needs >= GRASS 6.2.x):
  g.proj -c proj4='+init=epsg:3035' location=eu_laea

Depending on your needs one of these commands might be of use for you.
