Szechenyi Baths & Pool: Fun Place, Fine Palace

Szechenyi Baths (built in 1913) is the most visited and much praised attraction in Budapest: relaxing, fun, affordable and, at night, romantic. In addition to the marvellous medicinal natural hot spring waters in the 18 pools, there are 10 saunas / steam cabins, several massage therapies, facial treatments, and more.

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.

      Dear Maaike,
      Thank you for contacting us.

There are strict head count rules with regards to the number of Guests allowed to visit the spa (per government restrictions), as well as much stricter sterilising and hygiene protocol is in place to make sure that the thermal baths are open and operate safely.
      Enjoy your time in the thermal baths in Budapest!

      Hello Fernando, I can see that you contacted us via email by replying to your original confirmed e-ticket. Thank you, it has been all sorted out.

  3. Are you closed due to the corona virus in the next week ?

    • There is nothing online about your actions regarding Coronavirus. Could you please update those of us with booked tickets of the current status.

        Dear Jo, Thank you for contacting us. We are addressing all emails and comments with the speed we best can and there have been several replies on our website with regards to the corona virus.

        Since the coronavirus is an influenza virus with hourly media attention, but in effect, with the general symptoms of a seasonal flu in most cases, with very low mortality rates, the Covid 19 virus does not warrant closing down public spaces, public transport vehicles or many communal institutions. As long as trains, planes, buses etc. connect communities, it is logical to assume that community places stay open all over the continent, including restaurants, theatres, baths and other tourist attractions. That said, we are acutely aware of the level of tourists’ concern about the risks from Covid 19, and we are following the official advice of the Public Health authorities in Hungary.It is general advice to follow good hand hygiene and standard viral infection control guidelines (more often, more through washing of hands, using a tissue for sneezing, coughs, etc.). If you consider yourself at a greater risk of complications by flu (if you have pre-existing long-term health conditions) it is generally advised to avoid close contact in public spaces, depending on your risk status.
        In the baths in Budapest, there have been harsher hygiene standards introduced directly in the thermal pools, e.g. by adding higher volumes of chlorine and cleaning agents in the pools. While the Covid 19 virus is primarily a virus that spreads through droplets in the air rather than water, the chlorine content in the water produces elemental oxygen that destroys the Covid 19 virus, making them inactive. This means that any influenza virus present in the thermal waters is killed instantly.
        Also, the special filtering mechanisms maintaining the thermal waters’ hygiene are in more frequent use, the chemical monitoring systems are more closely and frequently checked, etc. As usual, even before the fright of the Covid 19 virus began, the baths will not welcome visitors who have had diarrhoea, vomiting or fever in the last 72 hours. Visitors entering the baths are to take a shower before entering the pool.
        As for tourism to Hungary, there are stricter rules and regulations in effect at the borders of Hungary to stop the spread from certain countries with higher numbers of incidents.
        The maximum number of Guests has been capped to minimise any risk of infection per governmental orders.

        If you are worried about the status of your booking, please kindly contact us with a direct reply to your confirmed ticket.

        Bath tickets and services have been and are sold via multiple sales channels, so please kindly check your confirmed ticket and/ or massage, and on your digital online confirmation please check the email address you need to contact to for future reference, e.g. when asking about the status of your reservation. Thank you for your kind cooperation.

  4. Hello – I had to leave Europe very last minute during my trip to make it back to America in time before the travel ban started. How do I get my refund for the 2 tickets I purchased for next week?

    Thanks.
