GREGOR is a high-resolution solar telescope with an aperture of 1.5 m. It will be equipped with an adaptive optics system and is designed for high-precision measurements of magnetic fields and plasma motions in the solar atmosphere and chromosphere with a resolution of 70 km on the Sun. GREGOR will replace the 30 years old Gregory Coude Telescope at the Observatorio del Teide on Tenerife. We describe the optical design and the focal plane instrumentation. In concert with the other solar telescopes at Teide Observatory it will be useful for studying the dynamics of the solar atmosphere and of the underlying processes. GREGOR will also serve as a test bed for next-generation solar telescopes.
