The essential visits of Bordeaux on foot or by bike

Bordeaux is a green city and cycling is the preferred means of transport for Bordeaux residents. Car-free zones offer you maximum safety. Cycle paths allow you to crisscross the city center. The tourist office offers you a map of cycle paths (fr). If you are wondering where to go for a walk in Bordeaux? We have selected for you a walk or bike ride between the Pont Chaban-Delmas and the Pont de Pierre, in order to see the most emblematic places of Bordeaux:

  • The Stone Bridge, from the beginning of the 19th century.
  • The Water Mirror, on the Quai Maréchal Liautey, runs along the banks of the Garonne and faces the Place de la Bourse.
  • The avenues of plane trees that line the Place des Quinconces provide plenty of freshness on hot days.
  • The Quai des Chartrons hosts a traditional market on Sunday mornings.
