Bordeaux City Guide

Bike through the city along the banks of the Garonne, relax in one of the many parks and gardens and taste the famous local wines in the beautiful city of Bordeaux.

Bordeaux is the world famous for being the world’s wine country. Thousands of visitors flock to the city to taste the high quality of the wines made in the region, but this French city has much more to offer than grapes and wine cellars alone. The inhabitants of Bordeaux love their city, with its relaxed way of life and progressive community of musicians and artists. Thanks to the many students from one of the largest universities in France, the city has a vibrant nightlife, which can be found mainly in the historic district of La Victoire. The Garonne River forms a spectacular backdrop for the picturesque town and visitors will be delighted by the beautiful district of Les Quais.

Bordeaux has few hills and features 580 kilometres of paved bike paths, making the bicycle the ideal mode of transport for visitors. You can get anywhere in the city centre by bike, so why not use the loan bicycle project, which has stations throughout the city. Winters in Bordeaux are mild, so cycling is no problem all year round. However, it never hurts to bring a raincoat, even in summer... just in case.

The city’s main attractions are found in the historic centre, close to the cultural institutions. Visit the Rue Sainte Catherine in the pedestrian zone and shop until you drop. Or climb the more than 200 steps to the top of the tower of the Gothic Basilica St. Michel and simply enjoy the view. The Musée D'Art Contemporain is a must-see for any art lover. People who prefer to be outside will also find the botanic garden amazing.

If you've explored the city once, it's time to taste its products, and a good start for this is the vineyards surrounding the town. The region is world famous for its wine production and tours of the most famous wineries can be organised from the centre of the city.

Bordeaux is 50 kilometres from the southwest coast of France. There are good bus and train connections with Barcelona, Marseille or Paris and it also has its own international airport.
