you can access WMS servers with the r.in.wms module.
this will give you a raster map. If you want data not just a pretty picture make sure the server supports the GeoTiff format. (???)

r.in.wms mapserver="$SERVER" -l
 # adding --verbose to that will show you a working URL for firefox

r.in.wms mapserver="$SERVER" layer=TK50 out=TK50_Bavaria ....
