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.

Thoroughly enjoyed the audio tour. Impressive building and museum. Day of Judgement altar piece was the highlight. Allow 1 hour

There seems to be more to see now. I do not remember seeing the excellent museum section, the apothecary and the kitchen. The care they provided indigent children of the past was amazing.

I hesitated a little to go to a place that used to be a hospital. But it was a wonderful experience. Lots of history and some good arts. Well worth it.

Went today and was great value for money. The tiled roof was truly lovely to see. There's an audio guide included in the admission price which was a bonus and has a nice narrative which is a nice way to hear about the history of the place. Most of the written information is in French.
