  • Through the audioguide tour is at the rhythm of each. To do during a passage to Beaune! Good quality-price ratio.

  • The roof of the hospices is beautiful, the structure of the main room is superb. Apart from that the staging of the tour is really dated, all really needs a good dusting.

  • Who visited Beaune and omits the Hôtel-Dieu, Miss the main attraction (in addition to the wine of course) in this city. However you should familiarize yourself before a little with the story.

  • This place is really interesting. A middle age hospital well conserved and a beautiful building also. A must see if you have the chance to come here. Also the opening times are wide, from 9 to 19:30 during the summer
  • Amazing history of noble man who build thus magnificent place to take care of poor sick people. Well organized and rich. You need about two hours to absorb all information
  • The original hospital building, the Hôtel-Dieu, in the centre of Beaune, is one of the finest examples of French fifteenth-century architecture, and is now a must-visit museum with world-class artworks. It is also a beautiful piece of design, with a patterned glazed-tile roof so typical of Burgundy only seen from the inner courtyard. Marauding bands that once roamed the countryside only saw a plainer exterior, not the splendour that lay within.
  • Excellent museum. It was hundreds of years ahead of its time. The architecture is very interesting as well.
  • Excellent audio tour. Unique. Great storied history. Good gift shop.
