Bootzheim is a commune in the Bas-Rhin department in Alsace in north-eastern France.

Geography[edit]

The village is located a few kilometres to the north of Marckolsheim. Adjacent municipalities are Mackenheim and Artolsheim.

Economy[edit]

Employment opportunities in the village are limited; the traditional economic focus of the region is Sélestat some fifteen kilometres (ten miles) to the west. The river crossing of Marckolsheim with its associated locks and hydro-electric power station offer employment opportunities: many low paid seasonal jobs are also provided by the Europa-Park theme park on the other side of the German border nearby.

Landmarks[edit]

The Romanesque period church of St Blaise.
