Admire the reflection of the Palais de la Bourse in the Water Mirror

At night, it is the best time to admire the reflection of the Palais de la Bourse in the Water Mirror. On this symbolic place of the commercial life of Bordeaux, this water mirror is the largest in the world! But it is a victim of its own success and attracts so many tourists and children, who wade there during the summer, that it is difficult to appreciate this work at its fair value. While the night, when the Place de la Bourse is deserted, the show is great... The palace is illuminated and is reflected fully, revealing the majesty of this magnificent building of the 18th century, under the stars. It's romantic as you wish for an outing for two.

  • Attention: It is under maintenance during the winter.

Take a guided night tour

The Bordeaux tourist office organizes night tours. They are themed to tell you a different story of the city. Routes take you in the footsteps of Montaigne or Montesquieu or take you through dark alleys to show you a more disturbing facet of the Bordeaux city. By choosing a theme adapted to the age of your children, it is a very interesting family activity. During the Christmas holidays, Bordeaux is adorned with a thousand lights... Enough to keep the little ones awake, even late in the evening.

The good idea To spice up the outing a little, there are also photo rallies, investigations or night treasure hunts.
