The architecture once inside is worth the price of admission by itself but the history is equally fascinating. Take the audio tour offered in many languages which is included in the very reasonable cost. Very enjoyable and suitable for everyone.

An absolute must when in Beaune, tour was great for adults and children and our 2 young children (6 & 9) thoroughly enjoyed it. Also purchased some of their famous wine whilst we were visiting!

This was our third visit and it used to be much better. There used to be lots to see but they seem to have taken away some of the more gruesome exhibits which is a pity. Not really worth the money anymore.

An unexpected surprise. The outside of the building hides the incredible step back in time. The amazing spectacle is fascinating and is great for adults and children alike. Enjoy the magnificent tiled roofs and the old hospital in all its glory. It is the iconic building of Beaune and must be on your list of things to do when visiting... More

Beaune is a charming historic city, pleasant to visit and with excellent restaurants. Hotel Dieu is its major tourist attraction. Premises of this former hospital are beautifully restored and its tour is interesting and extremely well organized. Would recommend to anyone

Founded in 1443 as a hospital for the poor, this is now a museum. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour - using the audio devices and allowing 2 hours. It is so well presented and maintained!

We keep revisiting this amazing building. It is an essential place to visit when in Beaune. Look at the tiles and understand that for the man funding the building that his wife was his " only star".

Amazing that this place was in operation for 500 years. Lot's to be heard on the audio tour, be sure to find a seat

What a beautiful place to visit. The tour will take you at least one to two hours to visit. This tour also comes with an audio head set in many different languages. You will be amazed at the history set here many years ago. Very educational. One of the main attractions of this town.

Hey, this was an interesting experience! We didn't plan to visit the hospice in advance, but once we got there, it was a must visit. Pretty fascinating history of the hospice and its people, its practices and facilities. On the plus side, the audio tour is (if i remember right) free or included in the entry fee. That definitely made... More
