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.

    • My Number (Nida Humayun)

      Hi is it kids friendly age 8 and 12

      • Szechenyi Spa Baths

        Hello Nida,
        Hot thermal pools are not recommended for children under 14 years old.
        Of course, children are allowed in the baths, however, the pools in Szechenyi Bath are medically not recommended for kids, but if the parents decide to bring their children anyway at their own responsibility, they can.
        Please also note that most of the pools and baths at the baths are more than 33 degrees Celsius, resulting in increased stress for the cardiovascular system of children. Their bodies are not fully developed yet to be able to cope with the warm waters perfectly.
        Therefore we recommend that you let the children use the cooler pools and outdoor swimming pool, fun pool etc.
        The thermal pools are not deep, they are for relaxation (you can stand or sit on the sides), so they are for everyone not for swimmers only.
        We recommend families with children to visit one of the open-air lidos in Budapest, especially Palatinus Pools on Margaret Island and Dagaly Lido close to Arpad Bridge (north of Margaret Island).

        Please let me know if I can be of further assistance

  6. Hi,
    Have a question, In our group have an aged person who will not be able to get into the spring . Is it possible for that person to accompany and sit around without getting into the spring ?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Geeta,
      yes, it is possible to enter the pool area, however, full priced entry ticket has to be purchased.
      Since there are handrails it is also possible to enter the pools even with reduced mobility.
      Hope we can welcome you at Szechenyi Spa Baths!
