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.

  1. Hello, do you have indoor pools and are they heated?? Are children welcome here, age 10 and 6???

  2. Hello!
    Are all saunas, wet and dry regularly open at this time? Is there a maximum number of people allowed inside the whole SPA and inside every single sauna?

  3. Hello,

    until what time the baths are open in December?
    I found in some webpages 7p.m and in other 10p.m – not sure if 7p.m is closing time or just last check in to baths.
    Also, is a towel given or shall we bring it with us?

    Thank you in advance,

      Hello Christina,
      Szechenyi Baths is closing at 7pm in this season. Please bring your own towels, at the moment towel rental is not available, but you can buy disposable towels or more expensive fluffy ones. We recommend bringing microfibre sports towels as they are lightweight to carry around yet very effective.
      Hope we can welcome you at Szechenyi Spa Baths!

  4. Is the outdoor pools salted water or clored water?
    Best regards Dorte

    I wanted to book some tickets on your website but I seem to have some problems concerning your booking system.

    I wanted to book a bath entry + massage but I can only book a bath ticket.

    Should I book the ticket anyway and book the massage elsewhere ? Can I book the massage when we arrive at the Szechenyi Baths?

    Thank you in advance for your help

      Hello Irene
      Thank you for your inquiry about the Spa Baths massage services.
      Massage treatments are no longer available for pre-booking. Reservation is on the spot, on a first come first served basis, subject to availability.
      Kindly note that massages are very popular and always get booked up on the spot (i.e. not guaranteed at the time of your arrival).
      We recommend buying online tickets and arriving in the morning hours to reserve massages as well.
      Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
