  • The museum is somewhat disneyesque and caters to children and retirement-home visitors but you can walk straight to the SUBLIME van der Weyden polyptych which is worth a special trip all by...  more »
  • It is the most beautiful Hospital I have ever seen. The building is like a luxorios hotel, or more. And it was built for poor people. Like in a tale or in a talebook.  more »

  • 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.
