Szechenyi Baths & Pool: Fun Place, Fine Palace

Szechenyi Baths (built in 1913) is the most visited and much praised attraction in Budapest: relaxing, fun, affordable and, at night, romantic. In addition to the marvelous medicinal natural hot spring waters in the 18 pools, there are 10 saunas / steam cabins, several massage therapies, facial treatments, and more.

Szechenyi Spa Baths is in the biggest green park of Budapest, in the City Park, close to a bunch of Budapest attractions. The  Neo-baroque palace was specifically built for hosting Szechenyi Baths as Hungary has been the country of baths (and Budapest the City of Baths) for many centuries: starting with the Roman settlers who built the first spa baths, through the 16th century Turkish occupiers who built many of the famous and revived Turkish baths in Budapest to the 19-20th century natural medical trends that promote aqua therapies and their deeply beneficial effects. The beautiful building of the spa baths is the design of Gyozo Czigler (Győző Czigler) who started to build Szechenyi Furdo in May 1909.

Come and enjoy your time in Budapest in Szechenyi Spa Baths, in a beautiful, richly decorated palace. The perfect place to chill out, to get to know locals, make business deals and fall in love.

  3. Hi ,
    I wanted to know if we come tomorrow around 4pm , do we need to book in advance?
    Also how much is the price per person?
    And if it is better to go in the morning or evening for the experience?
    Are there lockers to keep our valuables ?
    Is there a hair dryer?


    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Aboud,
      we suggest the online tickets so you can skip the main queue and check in at our HelpDesk.
      All of our online tickets are Fast Track entry tickets.
      Most of the guests are arriving in the early afternoon hours, so it is less busy in the mornings.
      You can buy tickets with cabins (EUR 18) or with lockers (EUR 17).
      The door of the cabin and the locker has a unique chip code lock, which opens and closes with a special waterproof bracelet: in fact, with the chip incorporated in the wristband bath entry provided at the bath. Please make sure that your door is locked with the silicon wristband before leaving. As you are wearing the band all the times, it is quite secure if you make sure that the door is not left open.
      There are hairdryers by the showers, so you can use the public hair drying equipment.
      I hope I could help.
      Enjoy your visit at Szechenyi Spa Baths!
