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.

  2. Hey I have a some questions,

    Is it possible to wear a loose swim short?
    Can I enter the spa with crutches because I can’t walk without them?
    Do we need to make a reservation or can we buy our tickets there?

    Thank u in advance.

      Dear Lotte,
      Please see a link where you can read further about the dress code at Szechenyi Baths: Dress Code
      We would advise against the crutches, because the surfaces and floors in the Baths are wet, and using crutches could cause accidents – both for you and for others.
      You don’t have to make a reservation, but we suggest to book fast-track tickets online, so you don’t spend much time in the queue. Tickets can be pre-booked on the following link:
      We hope this information helps.
