Szechenyi Baths (built in 1913) is the most visited and much praised attraction in Budapest: relaxing, fun, affordable and, at night, romantic.

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.

      Hello Shweta,
      yes, the outdoor area is open every day. Only one of the pools is closed (with the whirlpool) but you can enjoy the other outdoor pools.
      We recommend you bring or rent a bathrobe to wear when you are outside the pools.
      Enjoy your visit at Szechenyi Spa Baths!

  6. Hi.
    Is it possible to book at the spa? Or do we have to book on the website and is it any difference in the price?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Mill,
      yes, it is possible to book on the spot too. Tickets are somewhat cheaper at the cashier, as they are not fast track tickets like the ones you can buy online.
