This is a really lovely place to cool down in warm weather, or just to sit down and enjoy the views. It is so nice just watching the mist coming out of the ground, the water trickling out and the surrounding buildings mirrored on the surface of the water in this beautiful square.

Beautiful square in between the river and it's promenade, the tram and the beautiful architecture of Bordeaux, doubled in effect by the 'mirroir d'eau'. A perfect place for a walk, for a picnic or for a bike ride ... and definitely a great place to take photos.

Bordeaux is a beautiful city, full of grand streets with impressive architecture but the Place de la Bourse is particularly special, be sure to visit at night so you can see it lit up.

a visit to Bordeaux wont be complete without visiting this lovely place. Try to see the three effects of the miroir d'eaux; mirror effect, fogy effect and the flowing water effect. Such a nice place to spend an hour or so and experience the best pride of Bordeaux for tourist attractions and locals alike

Amazing public space by day and by night. modern tram service adjacent. No overhead wires. You can walk on the live rail! The wonderful Water Mirror is just across the road.

You must stop by this place if you visit Bordeaux. Definitely walk in the little streets and wonder around. I would visit at night, the lighting is beautiful.

A breathtaking beauty of Bordeaux. We absolutely enjoyed splasning the water on a hot summer day. The view of the Bordeaux’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry reflected in the 'mirror' is simply magical. I suggest if you want to take photo of the mirror without too many people you should come around 9-10 in the morning (at least that was... More

This square and the architecture style of the buildings can be found in many cities in Europe, but Le Miroir d'eau makes it special. This is the iconic photo of Bordeaux.
