The "Miroir d'Eau" is less than 10 years old, but located just across from a monument nearly 3 centuries old, it has become one of the city's main attractions.

An amazing photo opportunity. certainly one of the most famous photo attractions of Bordeaux. Always busy, but late at night, after dinner and wine, (most of the crowds are gone) stroll past here, enjoy the views and a great way to cap off what was...More

We had never heard of the Miroir d’Eau before our hotel receptionist pointed it out on the map. It is apparently the world’s largest reflecting pool and is located on the quayside of the River Garonne in front of the Bourse. We had a very...More

The water mirror is really cool, worth visiting as I haven’t been to something similar. Can get crowded but is a nice attraction if there’s nice weather!

This was quite the experience because when we visited Bordeaux it was 38C. It felt like the whole city was there trying to keep cool...excellent attraction in the core of the city.

The water mirror is a very unique fountain we went on a Sunday many people come with their children and they run on the water mirror and have fun. It gives also an illusion that it is part of the river

A good thing to see. The reflection created is wonderful though it was affected by a number of people walking through it on a warm night. part of a wonderful promenade on the river of Bordeaux.

This ia such a good idea to bring life and community to the centre of the town. Kids were cooling down in the pool during the day and the mirror reflection against the buildings is stunning at night. Why dont more cities do this?

Tram or Uber. Trams in Bordeaux are brilliant. Uber means not lines and when you get into the station there are frequently many people also lining up for taxis.
