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.

    Hi, is it possible to rent a towel there or at have to bring one?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Jose Ramon,
      although towel rental is available in Szechenyi Baths, there are often queues building up. Please note that the VIP entrance is only for the bath entry, and will not entitle you to have a 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 rental fee of HUF 1,000 (cash in HUF only for both).
      Flipflops are warmly recommended to be brought to the bath.
      We hope you will enjoy your visit to Szechenyi Baths and Pools (Széchenyi Fürdő in Hungarian).
