“A unique way to cross the Charente”

Pont Transbordeur - Maison du Transbordeur
Ranked #4 of 20 things to do in Rochefort
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The bike path leads to this fun way to cross the river. Biking is a great way to explore Rochefort and its surrounds. Riding the Pont Transbordeur which remains as one of the surviving that were used to cross the Charente River. There is a small cafe on the Rochefort side to stop and have a snack or drink. Worth the price to use fun uniquely built transportation to cross a river and it only takes a few minutes to cross.

There is a very nice bike path that connects to this unique attraction. A large, moving stage is suspended from a high superstructure to transport pedestrians and bikers across the river. We've never see anything quite like it before.
