Must see when in Beaune

Wonderful audio tour, allow more than an hour, lots to see. The history of the hotel Dieu is fascinating, five hundred years of service.

This gorgeously restored hospital, opened in the 1400's and continuously operated until well into the 20th century, is well worth a visit. The building and its furnishings and artwork are impeccably presented and the audio guide, available in England, is well-organized and informative (though a bit corny at times). Don't miss the tapesties and artwork formerly on display in the... More

A really beautiful building with an incredible history. It was good to have the portable phones that explained each area in the native language of the visitor. Really worth the visit.

What foresight , from someone in 1443 to create a hospital that was still in use in, I stand corrected, till 1984. The cleanliness, the organisation, the pharmacy ,the patients beds and the surrounds-way ahead of its time, the kitchen would still be fantastic to use today! The roof of the hospice however is I think the major drawcard of... More

Historical building in the heart of Beaune. Well worth the visit, full of interesting artefacts and very well documented. Very well kept makes a nice change being able to take a time out from visiting the many wine houses in the region. A must see if in Beaune

Hotel Dieu should be on your 'Bucket list'. History is made by people and this is never more present than during a visit of Hotel Dieu in Beaune. Remarkedly preserved it gives you an impressive tour over several centuries and how we crafted our social care. I always take my guests and friends there, have seen it many times. And... More

(By the way, I pressed the wrong button just now so this rated at 1 star instead of 5 stars) The most famous attraction in Beaune is the Hotel-Dieu Hospices de Beaune (often just referred to as Hospices de Beaune, or Hotel Dieu), a magnificent building with a multi-colored tile roof. Founded in 1443 by Nicolas Rolin, Chancellor of the... More

Visitation mandatory. History and pleasant place ... and still produce special wines (not so cheap). Visit the cathedral and the "La Moutarderie".

Well worth stopping in Beaune if you are heading south from Paris. The Hospices is the highlight in Beaune along with the wines. The tiled Roof is something else. There is an audio guide that is excellent. You can really appreciate how much this hospital was needed in its day. Magnificent building. No Negatives.

If you come to Beaune this is a compulsory sight, it's one of the largest reasons (besides wine) to come to this cute town. Great history lesson and beautiful old hospital that is well maintained.
