Following in the footsteps of Captain Böse for 200 years


Heinrich Böse, a sugar manufacturer, politician, and philanthropist, also known as "The Best of Them," chose this beautiful place for his retirement in 1826. He was known as a public speaker and for his benevolence, such as distributing food to those in need during times of hardship. This benevolence has evolved into hospitality at our romantic hotel near Cuxhaven in Germany.

A house in transition

In 1877, the Bohls family purchased the estate and opened the restaurant "Waldschlösschen" on the Bösehof. In 1957, Günter Manke took over the establishment, expanded the hospitality business, and added a second building. The first hotel at Bösehof featured 50 beds and an indoor pool.

The Bösehof family continues the story

In the year 2000, the second hotel building was constructed, and the wellness area was expanded. Even today, we, your host Natascha Grotjohann, and the entire team, strive every day to provide you with a unique vacation experience in the beautiful Elbe-Weser triangle. We look back on our history with pride, but also look forward with courage.
