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.

      Hello AJK,
      The cabin is like a tiny room where you can get changed and store your belongings.

      The cabin size is approx. that of a dressing room in a clothes shop and the door has a unique chip code lock, which opens and closes with a special waterproof bracelet: in fact, with the chip incorporated in the wristband bath entry provided at the bath. Please make sure that your door is locked with the silicon wristband before leaving the cabin. As you are wearing the band all the time, it is quite secure if you make sure that the door is not left open.

      Please let me know if you have any further questions.

    • Cubicle or lockers……..lockers are small., just a locker…..where cubicles are more private and maybe 6X6

    I have just booked 3 tickets for June for me and my 2 friends. I can’t figure out whether we can pre-book massages, as the information is mixed on the website. Do we have to arrive early on the day to book a same-day massage, or can we pre-book?


    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Leila,

      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 your entry tickets online and adding the massages upon your arrival. Recommended arrival time is 9 am.

      Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

  4. Can you buy an entry ticket on the day or is it prebooked tickets via the website only?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hi Callum,

      Yes, you can purchase your bath ticket on the day – subject to availability.
      Have a great time in Budapest!

  5. Hi I have purchased tickets but have yet received any email regarding the tickets. Can you send them to me please?

    • We paid on PayPal with the email below.

        Hello Gabriel,

        In the meantime we have sorted it out via email – the typo in the email address caused a delivery problem. Thank you for contacting us in time with a re-delivery request. Enjoy your stay in Budapest!

  6. Dear Team,

    The ticket page states that “Check-in” time is until 17:00– does this mean we can’t get in after that time? (Plane lands a little past 16:00, so we wouldn’t make 17:00). If last entry is at 17:00, what happens on Saturday nights– are there separate tickets for the party? Thank you.

      Dear Arina,

      The Baths closes its gates at 8pm, last check in is 7pm if you buy the tickets on the spot (all cashiers close at 19.00).
      1 hour is not enough to truly enjoy the thermal baths as all guests need about 15 min to check in and get dressed, then guests are to leave the pools by 19.45. With online tickets we wish to keep an early check in hours to avoid any disappointments and let customers enjoy the facilities.

      Ideally, try to find time for minimum hours when visiting the baths.

      Saturday nights: the baths close at 8pm, then there is a break. After that on most Sat nights, there are bath parties with music (and its own separate entry tickets, where day tickets are not accepted)
