The naturally hot (HOT!) spring waters – coming from deep underground the City Park Budapest – are simply not cooled down as in summer time, to keep bathing guests warm and cozy under the thick steam cushion hanging over the hot baths. It is a unique and unforgettable experience to hide from the cold winter weather in the relaxing thermal pools in Szechenyi Bath, the largest bath of Budapest, chosen to be one of  the Top 8 Thermal Baths in the World by Huffington Post.

Winter Bath Parties Budapest

Bath Parties in Szechenyi Baths are one of the best parties in Europe! Including the pre NY Party in Szechenyi Baths, a highlight of Budapest at the end of December. The rest of the winter Sparty series are held in the thermal pools of Lukacs Baths.

And let us recommend one more thing to do in one of the Budapest thermal baths, which also belongs to the family of Budapest Gyogyfurdok. The Saturday night bath parties in Szechenyi Bath are extended with winter bath parties, but this time not in Szechenyi Furdo itself, instead, in a lesser known but nice thermal bath of Budapest: the recently restored Lukacs Bath. Learn more about the winter bath parties here: Magic Bath Parties in Winter. Take a virtual tour in Szechenyi Bath Budapest to see the fantastic bath facilities in the Neo Baroque palace of Szechenyi Furdo.

Valentine’s Day in Szechenyi Baths is a nice and romantic thing to do off the beaten path. Couples usually enjoy the later opening hours of the thermal bath (open until 10 pm), when most guests dive into the culinary life of Budapest or Budapest nightlife with its clubs, bars, pubs, night tours and night Danube cruises.

Get some champagne and chill out, oh no, warm up in Szechenyi Bath to experience a unique Valentine’s Day evening in Budapest, Hungary. If you want to add a massage treatment at Szechenyi Bath for the two of you (massage therapies for couples are also available), book in advance. February 14 is an increasingly popular day in Szechenyi Furdo.

      Dear Michelle,
      if you do not wish to book a massage, please choose Tickets only, and a massage package if you would like having a massage as well. The outdoor thermal pools are open during the winter months too, and you get access with your Baths Ticket.
      Have a lovely time in the Baths!

  5. Dear all,

    do you think it is needed to buy a normal ticket to Szechenyi Spa Baths in advance, if me and my friends want to come there on december 30/31 or january 1st? Or is it safe to come directly there and buy the tickets on the spot on the day? Thank you!

    Kind regards,

  6. Veronica Martinez

    I am trying to book two tickets for February, however, it does not let me choose the dates. Is this because the tickets are sold out or because it is too early to buy them? And in that case, when would we be able to buy them?

    Thanks in advance

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Veronica,
