Digital Bordeaux

3rd commandment of the European Capital of Smart Tourism prize: digitalisation you will support. Digital technologies take an increasing place in our everyday life. But how does the city of Bordeaux align digitalisation with its eco-responsible commitments?


The city of Bordeaux participates in the development of places of digital innovation in industrial areas transformed into more attractive and urban spaces. To that end, the Bassins à flot, a blooming cosmopolitan district, hosts the Bassins de Lumières, a former underwater base rehabilitated as a large digital art centre.

It offers visitors the possibility to discover four immersive digital exhibitions broadcast continuously. The Bassin des lumières makes art accessible to all through an extraordinary artistic experience. An innovative and digital place that is also available for your professional events by providing you with 4 meeting rooms, a capacity of 312 people seated and 600 standing.
