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.

Toddlers to pensioners can take off their shoes and paddle in this shallow 'pond' only an inch deep. With the river on one side and the imposing buildings of the Place Royale on the other, it is relaxing and fun.

So lovely to walk through this water feature on a hot day in this wonderful city. Enjoy a wonderful view of the river from this location.

It’s just a patch of water on the pavement- but can be transformed in an instant to a great play area for young and old! In the past I’ve seen students having races sliding across it; this trip, as it was a warm day, families...More

This site is a must to include in your photographs of Bordeaux. It is centrally located and worth seeing.

It sounds a bit naff really but does provide an unusual view (the reflection) of some very attractive buildings on the waterfront. You are bound to go near it so make sure you see it and look out for the times it does different thing!

Well worth a look as it blends really well with the amazing UNESCO listed architecture. Best seen as part of general wandering rather than a specific trip though.

It’s a simple idea executed to perfection! Take a very large, flat rectangul beside the Garone river and turn it into a shallow pool. Pump an inch of water into it, then let it drain away leaving a flat, wet surface that reflects the buildings...More

The beautiful structures on Place de la Bourse together with the "special fountain" by the side of waterfront make a "mirror" effect on the buildings. Ejection of mist, water and the calm effect on the fountain create different atmosphere around. The place is more attractive...More

One of the most famous symbols of contemporay Bordeaux. Multiple low level fountains at various times change the effect of the water mirror.

This is not a feature that you would travel specialy to see. Its only one feature on the waterfront. Its nothing special however it does add to the overall picture of a very nice city.

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.
