  4. Is it possible for young children to enter the baths? We have two young kids 2,5 and 1 year old.
    Also to enter the outside pools do u have to walk outside to the open air and enter the bath there or is there a bath inside you can go in and walk/ swim to the outside area?


    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Dear Sean,
      The thermal pools are not recommend for kids under 14 years, but if the parents decide to come anyway at their own responsibility, they can.
      However, children & babies who are not dry and clean yet (being potty trained) are not allowed in the pools, not even with a swimming nappy. This usually applies to children under 3 years of age. Babies and toddlers can come with you to the bath, and stay outside the pool area.
      To approach the outside pools, you need to walk outside, unfortunately indoor and outdoor pools are not connected. Thank you for your understanding.
