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.

  1. How were the Turkish “occupiers” Romans were only “settlers”?
    You don’t get whole a lot of history lessons in Hungarian schools do you? :)))

    • Oh come on. Let politics out of it, please, it’s tiring.
      That were other periods. You wouldn’t call the homo erectus an “occupier” of Europe, or the Francs, “occupiers” of France, or the Saxons, “occupiers” of the British Islands, would you? The Turcs came much later, occupied the country and left after they lost a war. Although there are some ottaman heritage, they did not shape the modern hungary or its culture, in the same way that did the roman empire, Christianity, Judaism, Renaissance and the enlightment. I hope you see the difference now.

  2. Hello,

    Are there any tickets price for few hours (3-4 hours), in the afternoon (for example with entry from 5pm until 9 pm) and what is the price for it, including private cabin changing? This tickets can be purchased online, as I haven’t seen any info related to this type of tickets

    Are you allowed with your own drinks, or are there are any places to buy food or drinking, until the end of the progam – 10pm?

    Many thanks!

    Hi Szechenyi bath,

    I booked two tickets for tomorrow, but only got a payment confirmation from PayPal, and no booking confirmation from you. Is that enough? I’m worried we won’t be allowed in without an email confirmation.

      Hello Claudia,

      I have just resent the confirmation, which was already sent to you 6 hours ago.

      Have you received it this time, please?

      • Thank you! I checked my spam folder and it was there luckily!:) do we need to be there a certain time before our massage, or can we arrive at 10.30?

        • Szechenyi Spa Baths

          Thank you for letting us know, Claudia.
          I’m not sure if you have received the updated hours email too (sent 7 hours ago approx.). It says, quote

          please check-in at least 1 hour before the massage hour, so that you can be comfortably ready in swimwear by the time the massage begins. Thank you for your cooperation.
          IMPORTANT: massages are automatically cancelled – without a right to refund -if guests do not check in min. 40 minutes before the massage starts. Make sure you do not lose your massage and money.

          In your case, it means that you are kindly asked to arrive at 9.30 am for a conveniently paced check in (and not later than 9.50 am for a hurried check in). It may sound a lot of extra time, but the baths is indeed like a palace with many rooms, can be confusing for first time visitors which path to take, how the wrist bands work, etc. So it is min 40 minutes to check in, find your cabin, get changed, lock the cabin with the chip equipped wrist band, walk through the maze of pools and corridors to the massage room, and be there at the start in swimwear. Hope this helps.
          Enjoy your thermal relaxation in Szechenyi Bath, and your stay in Budapest!
