Beaune tourist information

where to go - what to see - what to do

Beaune is the centre of the Cote d'Or's wine production.  The surrounding villages such as Savigny-les-Beaune, Pommard and Volnay offer excellent opportunities for sampling full-bodied reds and delving into production techniques.

Beaune itself is not without charm!  The main tourist attraction is the Hotel-Dieu des Hospices de Beaune - a charity hospital founded in 1443 and much venerated by architectural buffs.  Today the Hotel-Dieu houses the Musee du Vin de Bourgogne with all sorts of insights into Beaune's prestigious trade.  To the north of the town lies the Collegiale Notre-Dame, a Romanesque church with noteworthy woollen and silk tapestries inside.
