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.

      Hi Alberto,
      Thank you for your inquiry about services between Aug 8 and 10, 2020 in the baths.
      From experience, online fast track ticket sales are stopped for the time period of Sziget Festival.
      On these days you can purchase entry tickets at Szechenyi Bath upon arrival.
      Please note that since the city attracts several thousand extra visitors during this period, waiting times in the queue are to be expected very long.
      Thank you.
