What to do
in Bordeaux ?
Bordeaux is a wonderful city, filled with discoveries, and many events to take part in all year-round. Here are some examples of activities you can do when visiting this beautiful city.
Walk along the water mirror
The water mirror is a fountain on place de la Bourse. The water on the pavement reflects the square or just the sky. It is very soothing, to either walk along it or just to play in the water.
Visit “la Cité du vin »
Bordeaux is renowned worldwide for its wine. You can discover all its history in “La cite du vin” (wine city). It is a museum where you’ll be able to explore everything there is to know about winemaking, the place of wine in culture, and Bordeaux.
Shop in Ste Catherine Street
Ste Catherine Street is the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe. You’ll be able to visit 1.25 km of shops, cafés, and restaurants. There’s also the Promenade Ste Catherine, a place where you’ll be able to visit even more shops and sip a drink next to the fountain. Ste Catherine Street is roughly seventy meters away from Central Hostel Bordeaux : it’s a good way to start every day!

The Pey Berland Tower carries above 9 hundred years of history. You can visit it and discover its architecture and the many historical artifacts and tapestries preserved in this place. Note that the visit can be free if you’re under 25 and from the EU.
