Tickets can be pre-booked in Hungarian Forints or in Euros.

Euro Bath Tickets with Fast Track Entry & Private Cabin

Bath Party Tickets with Locker for safe storage (Euro)

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 € 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 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 smartphone with wifi access, you can buy your ticket instantly. Mobile phone bookings via phone are currently not available.

  1. Hello,

    I’m trying to book tickets for a visit in September. It looks like the only payment option in in euro. I’m in the US how do I get that changed to the US dollar?

    Thanks for your help

      Hello Laurie,
      if you are making a booking from a US bank by card or from an American PayPal account where the default currency is dollar, the payment system will automatically convert the USD to EUR or HUF when actually buying your tickets online. That is, the payment will be eventually made in EUR or HUF although you have started the payment in $.
      Before making the payment you will see the conversion rate / exchange rate that your bank / PayPal is using at the that particular moment.

      Have a great time in Szechenyi Baths.

  2. Hello! We booked 2 bath + Private cabin tickets for the Szechenyi Baths for July 30, 2019. Our payment went through but we haven’t received an email with our tickets yet. Are you able to help?

      Enjoy the thermal baths in Budapest!

  3. Hello! We will be visiting the thermal baths on August 19. I read on this site that there is a 15 minute tour of the baths. How do I sign up for that tour?
    Also- if you buy a bath ticket for the day, can you leave the baths and come back later if you have the bracelet?
    Thank you,

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Valerie,

      visitor tours are a short, appr. 15 min walks in the bathhouse with a guide. Tours start at 10.30am and 4pm from Monday to Sunday. The tours are only in English or Hungarian. There is no online booking option for the tours. You can buy your Szechenyi Bath Tour ticket at the cashier in Szechenyi Baths.

      After the tour, guests can not stay inside the pool area, if they do not have a bath ticket of course.

      Please find more details on the link below:

      If you have a valid spa entry ticket, I am afraid, you cannot leave the spa.

      Have a great time in Szechenyi Baths Budapest.

  4. Hi, I am trying to book tickets for 11th of August but unable to book tickets for this wknd on any site. Just wondered why this was?

  5. Will you provide towels?
    & a locker ?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Lat,
      thank you for your comment. You can buy a ticket either with a locker or a cabin, but unfortunately, none of the tickets include towels.
      Towel purchase:
      Although towel rental is available in Szechenyi Baths, there are often queues building up at the Rental Room (please see on bath map). Please note that the fast track entrance is only for the bath entry, and will not entitle you to have quicker access to rentals or services.
      Therefore, we strongly recommend bringing your own towel to avoid some unnecessary inconvenience. The towels can be rented with a deposit of HUF 2,000, and a towel rental fee of HUF 2,000 (can be paid by cash or card).

  6. Hi,

    Since online massage booking is not available from Aug 7-14, how else do you recommend we book a massage for couple for 60 mins?
    Thank you.

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hi Raila,
      the good news is that Aug 14th is available for pre-booking. Between 7th-13th August massage booking will only be available on the spot at the baths. It is advisable that you go there early before 9 am to book an early morning massage before the huge queues start to build up, as we are unable to take online pre-booking during those days. Thank you for your understanding. Have a great time in Budapest!
