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. Greetings,
    Is there an option to buy a double ticket and only to stroll and look around the baths, take pictures, etc or we must use a daily ticket ?

    Thank you for your time

      Hello Iasen,
      at the moment only full- day adult tickets are available.
      There were visitor tickets previously (for a 15-20 min guided walk at the baths) but they are not available since the pandemic.
      You can make some photos for yourself respecting other guests. If you wish to get an official photo permit, please let us know.

  2. Hi
    We are family of 4. Is there a family ticket? Also is my son who is 8.5 years allowed?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Smita,
      The thermal baths were and are still aimed at adult bathers, therefore there are no different pricing for kids or students.
      Only full-price adult tickets are available in the spas- and no family tickets ( the entry free for children under 2 years old).
      There is no age restriction at the baths, however, please note that thermal waters for children under 14 are not recommended, but if the parents decide to come anyway at their own responsibility, they can. There are no fun pools or kids activities.
      As most of the outdoor and indoor pools are more than 33 degrees Celsius, which means increased stress for the cardiovascular system of kids, whose body is not fully developed yet to be able to cope with the heat of the bath waters.
      We recommend families with children visiting one of the lidos in Budapest, especially Palatinus Pools on Margaret Island and Dagaly Lido close to Arpad Bridge (north of Margaret Island).
      Have a nice family holiday in Budapest!

  3. Hi, I am wondering how the Berr spa baths are setup, are they all in individual rooms or are they all together side by side in 1 room?

    Also, are there 6 baths so people sit in individually or is there 3 baths with 2 people sharing?


  4. Hello, Me and my wife are planning to visit soon, we have an infant (8 month old) with us. They won’t be entering the bath and we plan to take turns using the bath, does he require a ticket ? Are strollers allowed inside ? Thank you !

      Hello Abhi,
      The bath entry is free for children under 2 years old but older children have to pay full prices tickets. Babies who are not potty trained are not allowed in the pools in Gellert Spa, even if they are wearing a swimming nappy. It mostly applies to children under the age of 3. Babies and toddlers can come with the family to the Spa but need to stay outside the pool area with somebody.
      The thermal baths were and are still aimed at adult bathers, therefore there are no kid’s pools or activities.
      Most of the outdoor and indoor pools and baths are more than 33 degrees Celsius, which means increased stress for the cardiovascular system of kids, whose body is not fully developed yet to be able to cope with the heat of the bath waters, therefore saunas and hot pools are not healthy for children under 14.
      You can lock the stroller in the cabin along with your jackets and other belongings.

  5. Hello, are towels and robes provided please?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Jo,
      The rental service is suspended since the start of the pandemic.

      We recommend you bring your own slippers and lightweight towels.

      Bathrobes are only available for purchase.

      You can purchase a towel on the spot: the fluffy towel makes a nice gift and serves as a keepsake luxury towel embroidered with the Szechenyi Bath logo. Alternatively, you can purchase a disposable towel at a fraction of the cost. For environmental reasons, as part of green tourism, we kindly ask you to consider bringing your own light weight towel. Microfibre towels are reusable, super absorbing and ultra lightweight, suitable for carrying around the city.

      Please find more details about this topic on the link below:

      Please let me know if I can be of further help.

      • Thank you so much for replying so quickly. Could you tell me how much the towels and bathrobes are please?

        • Szechenyi Spa Baths

          Hello Jo,
          the fluffy towel is HUF 5.000 and the bathrobes are HUF 9.900. Please let me know if you have any further questions.

  6. Hi,
