Szechenyi Spa Baths is in the biggest green park of Budapest, in the City Park, close to a bunch of Budapest attractions. The  Neo-baroque palace was specifically built for hosting Szechenyi Baths as Hungary has been the country of baths (and Budapest the City of Baths) for many centuries: starting with the Roman settlers who built the first spa baths, through the 16th century Turkish occupiers who built many of the famous and revived Turkish baths in Budapest to the 19-20th century natural medical trends that promote aqua therapies and their deeply beneficial effects. The beautiful building of the spa baths is the design of Gyozo Czigler (Győző Czigler) who started to build Szechenyi Furdo in May 1909.

Come and enjoy your time in Budapest in Szechenyi Spa Baths, in a beautiful, richly decorated palace. The perfect place to chill out, to get to know locals, make business deals and fall in love.

  1. Hi, I would like to go with my family (2 adults and a nearly 9 year old child) to your spa. I would be interested in renting a private cabin. I would like to know if there is a safety deposit box inside the cabin or something else in which to store my belongings and if it is possible to rent bathroom towels. Thanks

      Hello Giovanni,
      You can book tickets with cabins or with lockers – all of our tickets are with Fast Track and they are valid for the whole day (check-in times: from 9 am to 6 pm).
      The cabin is like a tiny room, the size is that of a changing cubicle, where you can get changed and store your belongings (some guests are leaving for the airport directly, and leave their suitcase/backpack in the cabin. You can also book a safe, however, if you have anything of particular value. Please note that the baths are very busy, and we do not recommend storing/bringing items of considerable value with yourself to the baths, such as jewellery, valuable wristwatches, etc.).
      The rental service is suspended since the start of the pandemic.
      We recommend you bring your own slippers and lightweight towels.
      You can purchase a towel on the spot: the fluffy towel makes a nice gift and serves as a keepsake luxury towel embroidered with the Szechenyi Bath logo.
      Alternatively, you can purchase a disposable towel at a fraction of the cost. For environmental reasons, as part of green tourism, we kindly ask you to consider bringing your own lightweight towel. Microfibre towels are reusable, super absorbing and ultra lightweight, suitable for carrying around the city.

  2. Hi there,
    I’d like to visit the baths this Saturday – do I need to pre-book or can I pay on arrival?
