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 marvelous 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 Magda,
      you can purchase your ticket on the spot at the cashiers as well, however, we recommend the online tickets, as you can skip the main queue.
      As we are expecting a lot of guests, please be advised that the waiting time can be 30-60 minutes, even with the Fast Track Tickets.
      Have a nice stay in Budapest!

  3. I am a single person wishing to enjoy your baths. If I have a cabin is it safe to leave a camera in while I go in the water?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Michael,
      The cabin is like a tiny room, or cubicle, where you can change and leave your belongings. The door of the cabin 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 times, it is quite secure if you make sure that the door is not left open. Please do make sure. Unfortunately, there is no insurance for the cabins, so if you wish to buy a safe, you need to pay for it at the cashier.
      Have a nice stay in Budapest!

  4. If there are two guests that are sharing a cabin do i need to buy 2 tickets? or can one person purhcase a cabin ticket and the other use the cabin?

      Hello Haley,

      thank you for contacting us.

      The tickets to the bath can be purchased with ‘cabin use’, or with lockers, that is there are no plain tickets without a locker or a cabin.

      The cabin comfortably accommodates one person, so if you are a couple it might seem a bit tight, but you can take turns in getting changed (of course, the same applies to families or smaller groups too).

      I would suggest to buy one ticket with a cabin and one with a locker.

      To buy your fast track tickets, please follow:
