Pool
Aug 2021 • Couples
It kinda has to go with the building which is not great right now. It's fairly difficult to see the mirror effect at the moment. It's essentially an auxiliary kids pool at this point.

Visually Stunning, A Must-See
Oct 2019
A new way of viewing the old world. It's a treat for everyone when the mist envelops the ground. Even more stunning at night. Water comes out and appears to mirror the grand & elegant Place de la Bourse. I haven't seen anything like it. Beautiful, fun, and trippy. Perfect for taking pictures. Best of all, it's free.

Beautiful square
Aug 2020 • Couples
Gives an extra dimension to the already impressive square. Water comes and goes and at night nice reflections appear with the evening lights

Beautiful view, romantic spot

Visit at night, bring the kids. Or even better, leave them at the hotel and go be romantic with your partner ;)

A must see in Bordeaux
Jul 2020
A must see in Bordeaux. Beautiful mirroring effect of the buildings. + if you're traveling with children or teenagers and it's a hot day, then it's really cool to wander in the water.

busy day and night
Jul 2020
lovely to people watch here, everyone paddling as the water bubbles up through the cracks onto the mirror paving. kids, parents, grandparents, lovers and dogs a plenty. great ambience and next to the river for good views up and down, do as the locals do and take a picnic and drink a glass of wine as the sun goes down. mind you it gets busy, really busy, all of Bordeaux seems to congregate here in the evening to sit and drink wine and socialise on the grass and watch people play.

fun
Jul 2020
The water mirror is fun. Kids are playing in the water, adults are walking on the mirror. The water is a mirror where you can see yourself or the buildings surrounding this place. Nice to visit by daylight and by darkness.

Nice spot to visit in the city centre
Jul 2020 • Couples
Beautiful location, best to visit in the night when the buildings are lit and the reflection together with the building look stunning.
