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.

  5. Hi there,

    I would like to book 3 tickets (including a child, 4 years old) but I cannot see whether a child needs to pay full price.

    Would a 4 year old child pay full price?
    Many thanks

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Marco,
      Thank you for your checking before your thermal baths visit.
      Szechenyi Spa Baths
      The bath entry is free for children under 2 years old but older children have to pay full prices tickets.body.
      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.
