Lovely place to visit

This is very impressive and even more so later in the evening when it looks magical. It is a very popular place.

The Placee de la Bourse on the waterfront is quite beautiful with some magnificent buidings but also with some of the most expensive cafes in Bordeaux. I think nearly 6 euro for a coffee is too much. There are very few shops around here.if you want anything like a UK shopping street then Rue Catherine is about the only place... More

Absolutely beautiful building, the mirror water is a marvellous feature, during the day so many people enjoying the water feature. At night the reflection is amazing. Great spot to sit and relax and view the river.

We took a walk on a Friday evening along the waterfront including the Place de Bourse, and it included a nice mix of locals and tourists enjoying the Place with different types of entertainment along the street. We saw it both during the day and at night. The reflection of water at night is by far the best.

The thing to experience here is le Mirroir, preferably on a hot day. Take the children, they will love it. In fact, all of the children's cheering adds to the experience. You can have a picknick on the newly landscaped quais. Very nice to stroll, and free for all.

Stunning architecture in what is an absolutely beautiful city. There are so many things to see all within walking distance of each other. Place de la Bourse is definitely worth a visit.

Great location and setting but I don't know when the water is ever empty of people long enough to get a mirror finish. Everyone is so happy though it doesn't matter. Sit and enjoy.
