Tickets can be pre-booked in Hungarian Forints or in Euros.

Euro Bath Tickets with Fast Track Entry & Private Cabin

Bath Party Tickets with Locker for safe storage (Euro)

Depending on the Euro currency, for almost the same price you would pay at the cashier of Szechenyi Baths, but if you are on a tight budget, you can save some  Euros by queuing at the Cashier in Szechenyi Thermal Bath. Please check the current prices here: Szechenyi Bath Prices. You can book your tickets online via our booking form on the left side. Groups of 20 or over can contact us for a group discount. Please note that party tickets are sold separately, and are not identical with the bath tickets.

Massage Treatments are best to be booked in advance, as the available massages are quickly sold out in advance (massage is for bath guests only, who have a valid bath ticket). Same day massage therapies are very hard to find. More info about massage therapies: Szechenyi Bath Massage

Party Tickets:  Bath party tickets in Szechenyi Bath are different from regular bath tickets. The bath ticket is only valid until 10 pm, while sparty tickets are valid on Saturday nights from 10 pm. More info about sparties here: Szechenyi Bath Parties

Fast Track Entry in Szechenyi Baths

In Hungarian Forint, you can buy your bath entry for the same price as at the cashier, but you do not need to stand in a line for an endless time (a life saviour on hot summer days, and cold winter peak days).

    Hello I am planning of buying a ticket for next week. Is the covid vaccine or certificate required?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Isabelle,
      no covid passes are required from May 1.
      Have a lovely summer holiday in Budapest!

      • Is it aloud for 5 years child to enter with the company of parents? Is it open at November ??? And what timing ???

        • Szechenyi Spa Baths

          Dear Ioanna,
          Babies who are not potty trained are not allowed in the pools, even if they are wearing a swimming nappy. It mostly applies to children under the age of 3. Babies and toddlers can come with the family to the Spa but need to stay outside the pool area with somebody.
          The thermal baths were and are still aimed at adult bathers, therefore there are no kid’s pools or activities.
          Most of the outdoor and indoor pools and baths are more than 33 degrees Celsius, which means increased stress for the cardiovascular system of kids, whose body is not fully developed yet to be able to cope with the heat of the bath waters, therefore saunas and hot pools are not healthy for children under 14.

    It looks like massage booking isn’t available online any longer. Do you have tips on how to be sure to get a massage slot? Do we need to arrive early in the morning on the day we visit? We’re looking at July 12.

  5. Hello,

    I am trying to book 5 tickets for tomorrow, but first available date is 22.8.
    Is it possible to buy tickets on site?

    Kind regards
