Szechenyi Baths & Pool: Fun Place, Fine Palace

Szechenyi Baths (built in 1913) is the most visited and much praised attraction in Budapest: relaxing, fun, affordable and, at night, romantic. In addition to the marvelous medicinal natural hot spring waters in the 18 pools, there are 10 saunas / steam cabins, several massage therapies, facial treatments, and more.

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. Greetings
    I will be happy to know the water temperature in the pools

      Dear Tamar,

      thank you for your inquiry.

      You can check the temperature of the pools on the following page showing the pools in Szechenyi Baths with their average temperatures:

      The outdoor swimming pool is one of the coldest, 26-28 degrees Celsius, and indoor there are several smaller pools which are so called plunge or immersion pools (planned to be used for a shorter time as part of an alternating hot/cold treatments with saunas), which are quite cold too, between 18 and 20 degrees.

      Have a great time in Szechenyi Baths Budapest.

  2. Question if you will do airport pick up and is there a place to store our luggage?
    Arriving Sunday 21 July early morning.

      Hello Peggy,
      unfortunately, we currently do not offer an airport pick up, but it is a great idea!
      If you get a taxi at the airport when arriving in Budapest, you can ask the driver to take you to Szechenyi Baths directly and store your luggage in the cabins. Please note, however, that we do not recommend bringing valuable items to the baths where about 1000-2000 people are visiting the 18 pools at a given time. If you have special values, you can rent a safe for the small items.
      If you book a ticket with a private cabin, you will have a lockable cubicle (like a lockable changing room), which can store a standard check-in suitcase easily.
      So in plain terms, the cabin size is approx. that of a dressing room in a clothes shop, so you can leave there the 20 kg suitcase as well ( if it is a regular size) along with your jackets etc.

      The door of the cabin has a unique chip code lock, which opens and closes with a special waterproof bracelet: in fact, with the chip incorporated in the wristband bath entry provided at the bath. Please make sure that your door is locked with the silicon wristband before leaving the cabin. As you are wearing the band all the times, it is quite secure if you make sure that the door is not left open.

      The size of the locker is 120x30x65 cm (1200 x 300 x 650 mm)., so it would be too small for your bags.
      The lockers are also opened and closed by your wristband.
      Have a nice holiday in Budapest!
