Szechenyi Baths Night

Each night, the three outdoor pools of Szechenyi Spa Baths are open until 10pm – from Monday to Sunday, and in all four seasons. Note: the 15 indoor pools and facilities also close at 10 pm.

Yes, that is right: Szechenyi Bath nights with its open air pools open all year round – spending an unforgettable night in the outdoor pools (there are more than a dozen indoor pools too) is one of the best things to do in Budapest, not only in spring – summer – autumn, but also in winter time.

Late night opening hours mean that you can enjoy fantastic night baths in the open air pools, while enjoying romantic stargazing, or just watching from the warm waves how gently the snow is falling – through the warm steam pillow forming over the thermal pools.

Open Air Pools at Night

There are 3 pools of various sizes and temperatures, so you will not feel either too hot or too cold, no matter what the weather is like. The middle pool is the coolest, which is in fact a sports swimming pool, while the two pools on the wings, are natural hot water thermal pools: one of which is cooled down to 33 degrees Celsius and the other is 38 degrees Celsius.

In the summer season, every Saturday night you can join the world famous hip Szechenyi Bath spa parties, known as Szecska sparties, or the rarer and more spectacular peak summer parties called Water Circus parties, aka Cinetrip sparties.

Sparties are one of a kind all night pool parties in the 3 outdoor pools in Szechenyi Baths with laser shows, DJ and VJ electronic discos. Typically enjoyed by young people in their 20s, 30s and 40s.

Just like the day visits in Szechenyi Baths, the night parties are not nude parties, swimwear is compulsory, and you can bring floating toys, and other pool accessories.

Drinks are available at the parties, which take place every Saturday night in summer months (autumn, winter and spring bath parties are in Lukacs Baths)

    Thank you!

  2. Hello,
    I was wondering if there was a gallery on your website that I could see the photos taken at last night’s party.

    Thank you


  3. Hello….
    7 of my friends and I are going to be in Budapest on August 15th. We are all so excited to visit the Szechenyi Baths. I have tried to find how to buy bath and locker tickets on line for the after 5pm ticket. I read in a previous inquiry that you go to the szechenyispabaths.com/booking/ so I did but there was not a place to by the after 5 ticket. I would be happy to by a regular ticket but it says that it must presented by 6? we probably will not be arriving at the bath until after 6.

    Can I buy the after 5 tickets on line?
    Or do we have to by them there when we arrive?

    thank you so much.

      Hi Harry, the bath party is from 10.30 pm to 3 am.
      Until April 2 the party is in Lukacs Baths, after that in Szechenyi Baths, two of the great thermal baths in Budapest.
      Tickets are mostly sold out before the party, make sure to book tickets before the spa party date.
