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 some  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 20 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

    Do you still require vaccine passport to enter?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Jay,
      Thank you for your inquiry.
      The entry requirement has been modified to ‘a healthy condition’ (free from any Covid or other symptoms of illness): in short, Covid passports / vaccination proof, negative tests (PCR or lateral flow) are no longer required for visiting the thermal baths in Budapest.
      Enjoy your trip to Hungary.
