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.

  5. Hi,

    On this website, the price of a double luxury refreshing massage with 2 entrances and cabins is 47,800 HUF; but on, the luxury refreshing massage for 2 people is 32000 HUF and the entrance ticket with a cabin is 6800 HUF per person, so totally 32,000 + 6,800*2 = 45,600 HUF. What leads to the different prices? Does the package on this website include more things?


    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hi Eddie,

      Thank you for your question.

      The prices you mentioned are all correct, however, we would like to point out the two big differences between the prices. Products purchased through our website are paid in advance so there is no need to wait at the cashier. Also, our product does include Online Fast Track Ticket Entry which means that you will be able to skip the lines and enter the bath with the support of the Online Check-in Service Desk personnel.

      Hope the above helps and we wish you a wonderful time at the bath in Budapest!
