Swim Wear Rental

Renting swimwear at Szechenyi Baths is an option for those who do not wish to carry around their swimsuits, swimming trunks, bikinis neither before taking a bath in the thermal bath, nor after that, when the swimwear gets wet and heavier. Some tourists assume that people swim naked in Szechenyi Baths. Quite the contrary, the Szechenyi Bath Dress Code makes wearing a decent swimwear compulsory for all, all days.

Ladies one piece swimming suit: HUF 1,000 – Deposit: HUF 4,000

Bikini: HUF 1,000 – Deposit: HUF 4,000

Note: as the deposit is set higher, at HUF 4,000, which you will get back after your visit to the Szechenyi Bath, some tourists do not have enough money with them for the swimming suits rental.

  1. Hello there,

    Two comments I have are that, I wonder how long is an average length of time for a visit, considering check in time, even if your bookings are done ahead?

    And, I previously read somewhere that Szechenyi Baths sells swimwear, and I don’t see that information suggested here at the website. I wondered if it is so.

    Thanks! ~ Karen

      Hello Karen, the visits range from a full day visit from about 12 pm to 9 pm, or 10 am to 7 pm, to shorter visits from 5 pm to 10 pm. Some guests only come because of the massage therapy, others only dip in for 2-4 hours. It really varies depending on interests and the general length of Budapest holidays. Locals tend to come at their usual hours, while tourists can come any time for a longer or a short visit. The bath is open from 6 am to 10 pm, so there is a wide range of visit patterns.

      Swimwear is not sold by Szechenyi Baths (rental is available), but there are some private vendors who sell swim wear on the spot.
