In the location's words:

The Bootshaus is notorious for its sound system, which - according to urban myth - is supposedly one of the best in Europe. Almost every weekend, fans of techno, electro and goa music flock here to party like there's no tomorrow. It feels like there are countless floors here and the club seems so big that you can almost get lost in it - a complete immersion into the night.

For those who prefer the fresh air, there is also an outdoor area.
