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. Hello!
    Is it possible to book a massage session in advance for the 28th of December? I know that it is impossible to book a ticket for entrance but what about massage?

    Kind regards,
    Olga

      Dear Olga,
      the bath management has decided to put a temporary hold on online fast track reservations due to the increased visitor numbers between Dec 24 2019, and Jan 7 2020, for the Christmas period, which attracts hundreds of extra tourists.
      The sheer extra number makes online fast track tickets to the Thermal Baths non-fast track, as ticket holders are often held back in the – otherwise peaceful and benign – crowds gathering around the entrances. Massage therapies will be available to book only on the spot.
      Have a nice day.
