  1. Hello, will the baths be open easter sunday (April 1st)?
    If yes, what are the times?

  2. My wife and I were there yesterday, we went out of the pool at 21h45. The staff shouted on us because we were not ready at 22h and pushed us out of building with wet hair.

      Dear Aymen,
      we are very sorry for your experience.
      Unfortunately the opening hours of Szechenyi Baths are strict, especially on Saturday evenings, when the staff needs to prepare the venue for the Bath Party starting at 10.30pm.

  3. Hi,

    I´m planning to visit Budapest next month, and I was thinking about going to the baths on my arrival day, as I was there a few years back and I loved them. I have seen that since 1st March this year all indoor and outdoor pools are opened until 10pm.

    But are the opening times of the cash desks? Are they open all day long as well? My flight arrives to Budapest in the early evening, so I don´t want to book the tickets online in advance in case the flight is delayed, and also because the Help Desk for online reservations is only open until 6pm.

    Thank you

      Dear Saloni,
      yes, Szechenyi Baths will be open on both days. Only 1 of the 3 outdoor pools will be closed.

  5. When I tried to buy tickets online its says to check in between 9am-6pm but the baths are open from 6am? What does this mean? Can I buy the tickets online and come early or do I have to wait until 9am to get in?

      Dear Rose,
      this means that unfortunately you cannot enter before 9am if you have online purchased fast track tickets.

      Thank you for your understanding.
