Szechenyi Spa Baths is in the biggest green park of Budapest, in the City Park, close to a bunch of Budapest attractions. The  Neo-baroque palace was specifically built for hosting Szechenyi Baths as Hungary has been the country of baths (and Budapest the City of Baths) for many centuries: starting with the Roman settlers who built the first spa baths, through the 16th century Turkish occupiers who built many of the famous and revived Turkish baths in Budapest to the 19-20th century natural medical trends that promote aqua therapies and their deeply beneficial effects. The beautiful building of the spa baths is the design of Gyozo Czigler (Győző Czigler) who started to build Szechenyi Furdo in May 1909.

Come and enjoy your time in Budapest in Szechenyi Spa Baths, in a beautiful, richly decorated palace. The perfect place to chill out, to get to know locals, make business deals and fall in love.

  3. Hi there,

    Is nudity allowed in anywhere?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hi Sam,
      Thank you for your inquiry.
      In normal times there is a rooftop nude bathing area during the hotter months of the year (Jun – Sep). Please check with the cashier upon arrival about the upcoming opening hours and availability (there have been several changes and modifications due to the Covid regulations, so it is best and most accurate to check it on the spot in the baths).

  4. Hi, I am planning a trip to Budapest next week. Will baths be open, please?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Roshannake,

      Thank you for your inquiry.
      Currently it seems that the baths is very likely to stay closed throughout the month of February.
      That said, we recommend making a phone call just the day of your planned visit to make sure that you receive the most updated information with regards to the opening times of the thermal baths in Budapest. Thank you and looking forward to welcoming you in Hungary (once the borders have been reopened).

  5. Hello !

    I wonder if the bathhouse is opened?

    Best Regards

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Yasemin,

      The Baths will, most probably, fully open their gates later on during the 2021 year (there is a partial opening scheduled from Apr 19, 2021 but the pools will not re-open, only some of the medical services offered by the thermal baths in Budapest). At this moment there is no solid date set for the re-opening of the spa pools in Szechenyi Baths. Please keep checking back for travel status in Europe as well as government updates in Hungary with regards to the openings of spas, gyms, and other public institutes, places of interest on the Hungarian government portal to get the most recent news.

      Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation to stop the spread of the Covid 19 pandemic.

      We are looking forward to welcoming visitors in Budapest when travelling and sharing public spaces are regarded safe to visit.

    Hi!

    Do you need vaccine card to enter the bath?

    • Szechenyi Spa Baths

      Hello Carsten,

      The Baths will open their gates on 01 May 2021 to guests who possess a Hungarian vaccination card (in accordance with the Hungarian governmental decree). In other words, at the time of writing at least, the information is that only guests who own a proof of Covid 19 immunity card issued by a health institute/ vaccination centre in Hungary are allowed to visit the baths (including locals and expats, but most probably excluding foreign visitors, tourists).
      Face mask is to be worn in public areas within the thermal baths (at cashiers, changing rooms, etc.) but the mask is not required in the pools. Kindly note that the temperature of guests are taken before entering the baths.
      From 1 May 2021
      Outdoor pool area: Mon – Sun from 7.00 to 19.00.
      Indoor pool area: Mon – Sun from 9.00 to 19.00.
      Sauna: not available.

      We will publish more updates as soon as we can, please bear with us.

      Please keep checking the potentially changing travel status of European countries as well as government updates in Hungary with regards to the openings of spas, gyms, and other public institutes, places of interest on the Hungarian government portal to get the most recent news. Thank you for your continued patience and cooperation to stop the spread of the Covid 19 pandemic.

      We are looking forward to welcoming visitors in Budapest while keeping public safety a priority.
