Bordeaux is more than a mecca for oenophiles, its architectural heritage has earned Bordeaux a place on the prestigious UNESCO World Heritage List. Consider a car hire in Bordeaux to truly explore and appreciate this remarkable destination. Here are some attractions we would recommend:

  • Place de la Bourse is Bordeaux’s most iconic, and widely photographed attraction. The main draw of this spectacular square is the Miroir d'eau, the world's largest reflecting pool, where the grand structures surrounding the square cast a shimmering reflection in the water. The stunning visual effect is mesmerising, particularly when lit up at night. 
  • Cité du Vin, located at 134 Quai de Bacalan (parking at 2 rue de Gironde), is an architectural marvel. The building is designed to look like a wine decanter and houses a museum that offers a multi-sensory journey through the world of wines. Head to the top floor for a wine-tasting session while taking in the panoramic views of Bordeaux.
  • Among Bordeaux’s modern attractions is the Bassins des Lumières, the world's largest digital art centre. Housed within a transformed WWII submarine base, it showcases captivating, immersive digital art exhibitions of greats like Klee, Monet, and Klimt. Parking is available at the Indigo Parking Les Bassins.

  • Hire a car in Bordeaux, France, and go on a wine-tasting tour through the world-renowned wine-growing regions of Saint-Émilion, Pomerol, and Fronsac. Head to Chateau Pontet Canet, one of the largest wine estates in the country.

  • Boat cruises on the river Garrone are a wonderful way to explore the surrounding area. Drift past what was once a major 18th-century port of Europe, enjoy panoramic views of Bordeaux’s historic architecture, and travel on to the Gironde estuary. Most cruises also include wine tasting and a meal.

  • With your car rental in Bordeaux, venturing beyond the city is easy. It takes 1 hour and 15 minutes to get to Dune du Pilat, the highest sand dune in Europe. Get to the top of the dune for incredible views of the Atlantic coastline. The more adventurous travellers can paraglide off the top of the dune.

  • Stroll along the Rue Sainte-Catherine, Europe's longest and fully pedestrianised shopping street, stretching over 1.2 km. International brands rub shoulders with bohemian outfitters along this shopper's paradise. Park your car rental in Bordeaux at the Porte de Bordeaux parking lot.

  • Known as the “belly of Bordeaux,” Marché des Capucins, the city’s largest market started in 1749. Shop for Bordeaux specialties like custard-y canelés, fresh oysters, and other local produce. Leave your car rental in Bordeaux at the Parking des Capucins.

  • For a suitably French tradition, browse through the flea market at the Quai des Salinières. Bargain hunt for antiques, trinkets, crockery, clothes, books, and even furniture.

Bordeaux is nicknamed the 'La Belle Endormie' or Sleeping Beauty, but there is nothing sleepy about this city in the south of France.

  • Get yourself tickets to enjoy a performance by the Bordeaux National Opera, in The Grand Théâtre de Bordeaux. The building is an architectural masterpiece, built by Victor Louis in 1780. Park your car rental in Bordeaux at the Grand Théâtre parking lot, on 5 rue Guillaume Brochon, or at the Comédie parking lot.
