Surprise your kids with these six super ideas for days out in Bordeaux

The elegant city of Bordeaux has undergone a massive regeneration programme and the capital of New Aquitaine now has many new attractions to entertain the whole family: the river banks have been transformed, there are numerous green spaces, unusual places where attention has been paid to the needs of young ones, as well as child friendly restaurants. And, let’s not forget Cité du Vin wine museum, recently opened, even here a young audience hasn’t been forgotten.

Tastings to understand wine while having fun


Wine… yuck! Children don’t like alcohol it’s true, but they are demanding and curious about taste. The Cité du Vin knows this well and offers an interactive tour with a junior audio guide as well as introductory tasting workshops where the whole family is invited to taste drinks with unusual colours and flavours.

Extreme sports for little ones


In Bordeaux, Atlantic Sea rollers are never far away. An amazing "wave surf bar" welcomes the future stars of the surf safely, thanks to an original concept - artificial waves, just like real life, but heated to a comfortable 22°! Your children can’t keep on the board? Then Arkose awaits you and your kids. This indoor climbing park features a child-friendly area with colour coding to help children position themselves as they learn and play; there are also baby climbing sessions for toddlers.

Innovative concept stores


A shop that is much more than just a sales space. This is the concept of Kraft which brings together a flower and toy shop but also offers creative hobbies, stationery, plus a library where you can go and read with the family. Little Fabrik, a shop dedicated to children's décor, has a doll house vibe with a beautiful selection of vintage furniture as well as a hairdressing corner and fun workshops.

Animals in the heart of the city

On the right bank, in the commune of Lormont, Iris Farm is home to 5-hectare park where donkeys, ponies, sheep, rabbits, goats, chickens, guinea pigs and a pig live! The creatures are friendly, you can get up close to them and it’s a great way for children to learn about animal life. From the farmhouse, take a stroll to the nearby Hermitage Park, a superb ecological reserve on the banks of the river Garonne.

Cycling without limits


With more than 160km of interconnected bike lanes, Bordeaux ranks 6th among the most cycling friendly cities in the world. A real bonus for families in the city and you can find a great variation of itineraries, downloadable from the internet. Among the must-sees are the quays along the Garonne where you can admire the splendid eighteenth-century facades of the buildings, take a trip to the Darwin ecosystem and enjoy a break at the Park Aux Angéliques.

Gourmet and delicious breaks
