About Boofzheim

Owing to the operational challenges that coronavirus has presented us with, we have taken the decision not to open our base in Boofzheim for the rest of the 2020 season. If you have a booking that is affected by this base closure, where possible, your booking will be switched to a different base within the same cruising region. Will be contact you to let you know, although we are extremely busy at present, so please bear with us while we work through affected bookings in departure order. We thank you for your patience.

Boofzheim puts you in the quiet south of this cruising region, close to the German border. Germany's biggest theme park, Europa Park, is only 13km away and a great start or finish to your holiday if you have kids in tow. Strasbourg, the region’s capital and home to the European Parliament, is 6hrs cruising to the north; pretty Saverne and the beautiful Rohan Palace a further 10hrs from there and the iconic boat lift at Arzviller is another 4.5 hrs after that.

From Boofzheim it is:

  • 23.5hrs (44 locks) to our base in Hesse
