  • I have been wanting to go to the Hospices de Beaune for years. Well I was not disappointed! This place is beautiful and so loaded with history!!! The free visit with an hearing aid is very good because we visit at our pace. The room of the pôvres, beyond the whole atmosphere that emerges, refers us to the film La Grande Vadrust where Oury turned his scene of Anthology the one where the English paratroopers hide. A must visit if you are in Beaune.

  • Beautiful from the outside to the inside. The roofs are very beautiful and colorful. The different rooms remind us that it was a hospital held by sisters. We are afraid to see an old pharmacy as well as old objects belonging to ancient medicine. For all the details at the entrance we lend ourselves headphones that give us all the information on each of the rooms with a lot of detail. The Chapel is beautiful as well as some paintings and tapestries.

The quality of the building materials, the stained glass Windows, the furnished rooms, the room of the pôvres with these 24 beds with a magnificent Chapel, the room St Hugues more opulent for the wealthy sick paying, the kitchen the Pharmacy and the jewel the courtyard of honor and these roofs these gargoyles this visit was a delight

  • It is very informative. You can find many important things and a very good selection of languages for the audioguide, which are not too long and keep you into those times. Inside you can find many things that were used to heal people. It is recommended.
  • A very interesting place, full of history. There are audio guides in several languages with detailed explanations of the life of the sisters and the sick when the hospices were running as well as commentaries on the funding and maintenance history and architectural features of the place. There are plenty of places to eat and park all around in an overall very pretty town.
  • It was the hospital, but now it's museum. It has beautiful glazed roofs and great masterpices of moyen ages. Many famous winery are near, so I recommend visit this place with good wines.
  • Excellent museum with good audioguides. Overall very well preserved and extremely interesting place. Beautiful rooves and it was lovely to see a good attempt at exposing original pieces (furniture, tapestry...). Would highly recommend!
  • A cool historical site well worth the 7.50€ (5.50€ for students). The free audio guide is interesting, though a little long. You can easily spend 2-3 hours here, though if you just want to breeze through and look at the architecture and artifacts, you definitely could in an hour.
