(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.

This place was 7 Euro for each adult and came with an audio guide. For English speakers, you get a lot of information in the audio guide but the displays are in French. If you have a genera understanding of French, they can help clarify some information but the audio guides are very helpful and give an entertaining narrative of... More

There's much to see here - fascinating regional, medical and architectural history. Of course wine is part of the story, too. (The only toilets are halfway through the walking tour - don't wait to the end!)
