Bridging industrial underground values with mainstream electronic sounds, Bootshaus, Germany’s best nightclub, is a place reserved for the fresher, more edgy end of Techno, EDM, Trap, Dubstep, and much more. Located on the Cologne shipyard premises, this former ship and boat warehouse houses three rooms and an outdoor area, of which the main room can accommodate more than 1000 guests. Big acts like DJ Snake, Yellow Claw, Tiesto, Armin van Buuren, and Deadmau5 love to play Bootshaus as this club attracts one of the most energetic crowds in the world.
First entering DJ Mag’s ranking of world’s best clubs in 2013, Bootshaus quickly climbed the ranks, finishing #8 worldwide, and #1 in Germany, in 2019.
Bootshaus also regularly gets involved in festivals, hosting its stages at festivals like BigCityBeats World Club Dome, Parookaville Festival, New Horizons Festival, and most recently hosting Europe’s first ‘corona-proof’ concert in Lanxess Arena.
