One of the questions we get from tourists is if you can buy alcoholic beverages, most notably beer at Szechenyi Baths? In short the answer is yes, you can if you are over 18.
In the building of Szechenyi Spa Baths there is a simple cafeteria, which sells not only hot and cold meals and foods, but also soft drinks and beers / wines / cocktails (not outstanding Belgian beers of exquisite French wines, so do not raise your expectations, the cafe sells simple alcoholic beverages in cans and plastic glasses (as you can see it in the photo of the bath).
Szechenyi Baths strives to provide an environment where no accidents with glasses and bottles can happen, so real glass products are not allowed to be sold on the premises (maybe the exception is champagne on New Year’s Eve and Day).
Let us quickly add that alcohol dehydrates, so please make sure that you drink plenty of water in hot weather. It is prohibited to behave unruly and drunken in Szechenyi Baths, but there is no problem with drinking beers or wines in a civilised relaxed manner.
Please note that getting drunk does not only affects your behaviour but may cause serious health problems (drunken people are not recommended to swim either in cold or in warm water – the effect of lots of alcohol is just like having heart problems or being generally in a weak physical condition and risking cardio problems by entering into water).
