Depending on the Euro currency, for almost the same price you would pay at the cashier of Szechenyi Baths, but if you are on a tight budget, you can save 1-2 Euros by queuing at the Cashier in Szechenyi Thermal Bath. Please check the current prices here: Szechenyi Bath Prices. You can book your tickets online via our booking form on the left side. Groups of 10 or over can contact us for a group discount. Please note that party tickets are sold separately, and are not identical with the bath tickets!

Massage Treatments are best to be booked in advance, as the available massages are quickly sold out in advance (massage is for bath guests only, who have a valid bath ticket). Same day massage therapies are very hard to find. More info about massage therapies: Szechenyi Bath Massage

Party Tickets:  Bath party tickets in Szechenyi Bath are different from regular bath tickets. The bath ticket is only valid until 10 pm, while sparty tickets are valid on Saturday nights from 10 pm. More info about sparties here: Szechenyi Bath Parties

Fast Track Entry in Szechenyi Baths

In Hungarian Forint, you can buy your bath entry for the same price as at the cashier, but you do not need to stand in a line for an endless time (a life savior on hot summer days, and cold winter peak days).


In Euro, for about an extra €0.5 – 1 (depending on currency changes) you can buy your peace of mind, and skip the long lines of locals and tourists trying to get in the famous baths. By purchasing the Fast Track Entry to Szechenyi Spa & Thermal Baths you not only skip the hassle of having to wait for getting into the baths, but you will also ensure entering the baths via our private entrance at the Help Desk with officials speaking high level English.

Please note that massage treatments need to be booked at least 24 hours in advance (48 hours at weekends), but bath tickets can be booked for the same day, or next day too. Online tickets are confirmed via email: the confirmation email is your bath e-ticket, so if you have a smart phone with wifi access, you can buy your ticket instantly. Mobile phone bookings via phone are currently not available.

  1. Hi there, I see that the check-in time for ticket here is 9am-6pm, however I wish to enter at 7am, so does it mean I should not purchase the entrance ticket online? If so, then only way is to purchase the ticket in person at the bath entrance? Grateful for your reply, thanks!

  2. Hi, if there aren’t any online tickets for the 10th August 2019 (saturday), does it mean that they are all sold out? Or will I be able to buy tickets on the spot at Szechenyi?
    Kind Regards!

  3. I want to take my 4years kid along with us. For him any ticket required?

      Dear Puja,

      there are no student tickets in Szechenyi Baths, so you need to buy a full price ticket for the child.

      However, please note that the pools in Szechenyi Bath are not recommended for kids under the age of 14.

      As many of the 18 outdoor and indoor pools and baths at Szechenyi Thermal Baths are more than 33 degrees Celsius, the mere temperature of the pools means a potential increase in the stress for the cardiovascular system of kids, whose body is not fully developed yet to be able to cope with the heat of the bath waters.


  4. Hi,

    We been trying to book online sir a while with no luck. Can we buy at the door? For tomorrow Monday the 12th of August

      Dear Dulla,
      thank you for your inquiry about services between Aug 7 and 13, 2019 in the baths. While we normally would recommend online bookings to secure your appointments or entries, during the Sziget music festival week (Aug 7-13) the city attracts half a million extra tourists, which makes online fast track tickets to Szechenyi Baths and Gellert Spa simply non-fast track, and ticket holders are often held back in the – otherwise peaceful and benign – crowds gathering around the entrances. Hence the managerial decision was taken that it is only possible to buy entries and massages on the spot during the festival days.
      Enjoy your time in Budapest.
