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.

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?

We recommend seeing this attraction - great on a hot day with the water and water vapours. It's not exactly rocket science, but an interesting attraction.

Shoes off and just splash about in the shallow water bubbling up from holes in the ground - a great way to cool down - all cities should have one.

It is a nice place to spend time. It is besides river Garonne. In the summer it helps a lot with the water. Refreshs the place. Children walk there

A beautiful water feature, with two inches of water where people can wade in and relax! Especially transformed at night time!

This is a public area that offers a nice place to relax and frolic in the water when the weather is hot.

The pictures at night have water in the the reflection. I was there from 900pm until 1130pm. I saw it steam and fill with water twice, but there was still daylight left. After the sky was finally dark (~1030pm), it never... More

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.
