I have been in Bordeaux the whole weekend and haven't seen this mirror image once. Even if it's off for the weekend their is no notice to inform tourists.

I pass there every week or so - lovely point of view to admire the sunset, people passing by, or the miroir d'eau!

I hopped off to grab a photo and wander around the area, and it definitely doesn’t disappoint. Even in the rain, it was beautiful!

Came for the Siblu sales conference and I can safely say that this was probably the best one I’ve been to since 2012. The room looked fantastic and in a great setting.

If you fancy a stroll in the evening or during the day this is perfect. Came out of our hotel to stretch our legs at night and it was lovely to pass by Place Royale. Feels safe also.

Eventhoug it was raining, I enjoyed it a lot. I found it big and impressive. The water mirror wasn't working though

Beautiful beautiful building and spectacular at night. While there is some renovations underway it is still worth a visit.

I cannot see why this is such an attraction. Granted we were there in November and there was scaffolding across half the buildings, but I seriously don't see what all the hype is about. Could easily miss this one off the list. Sorry guys.

I’m sure if you go in Summer, it would be nice not only for taking pictures but also for leisure. It’s a hotspot for visitors. It’s also a starting point for the protests of the lately Yellow Jacket movement in Bordeaux.

Yes, the building on the left is a Free museum (Musée des Douanes), the building on the right is a government office, and the center one was the USA ambassade, but for now (for 8 years exactly) that's a restaurant, you have... More
