Szechenyi Baths – Drinking Alcohol

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).

      Dear Khan,
      thank you for your inquiry. Yes, Szechenyi Baths will be open on Sep 30 as usual, from 6 am to 10pm. There will be a Bath Party in the evening, starting from 10.30pm.
      In case you wish to enter during daytime: there is a small cafeteria inside the Baths, where you can purchase drinks. You can pay by cash (HUF only).
      If you don’t wish to have massages, you can book your tickets 1 day in advance, or on the spot.

      In case you wish to visit the Bath Party:
      please note that daytime tickets are not valid to enter the Party. For local payment at the party, you will be using the so called “Metapay” plastic card, which is the only way to pay at the bars during the party. Booking Party tickets in advance is highly recommended, as most often the tickets are sold out days ahead.
