This tour was breath taking. The outside coloured stonework and slates took my breath away. On entering the courtyard, again, breath-taking. It was unbelievable it was once a hospital. Inside you wander around the old wards, pharmacy and other memories of its ling and distinguished past. Give yourselves a good 1 hour plus to take in all the information available.... More

This museum is very beautiful, but also quite interesting, beeing one of the first hospitals for sick, poor people. With an audioguide you'll have the whole story. A must in Beaune!

Hotel Dieu in Beaune, France is worth a whole day trip. We spent about 3-4 hours in Beaune, plus a couple hours getting there and back. This almost 600 year old hospital is still furnished as it was in the museum areas. They alone are perhaps two hours worth if you have an interest in medical care history, perhaps a... More

Once inside the magnificence of this building is clear. On every side of the courtyard there are wonderful vistas of patterned coloured roof tiles , gilded spires and timbered galleries . . The great Hall is a fascinating spectacle of immaculate beds but remember that there used to be four to abed so not likely to be as pristine as... More

We arrived on a cool March morning and were immediately swept into the time and place of when the "Hotel-Dieu" was conceived. The audio was very well done explaining the day in the life of patients, nuns, and others who brought supplies. Well worth seeing!

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
