Szechenyi Baths (built in 1913) is the most visited and much praised attraction in Budapest: relaxing, fun, affordable and, at night, romantic.

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.

  1. hello, does price include towels and slippers pls?

  2. Hi,

    What counts as an “official” antibody test? If I’ve paid for it to be completed privately is that acceptable?

    Thanks

      Dear Laura,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      For Gellert and for Szechenyi Spa Baths entry requirements are the same:

      EU or International Covid Passport or proof Vaccination over 16 of age. They do have an expiration date, so please make sure that your document is valid. It does not matter how many jabs you have had if the document is valid, you can enter.

      If you have official proof of recovery from Covid (EU recovery pass) it is also accepted

      Please note, that no PCR tests are accepted.

      Please let me know if I can help more.

  3. Hi, can I take ticket for tomorrow?

  4. Is it suitable for children?

      Hello Lauren,

      Thank you for your inquiry.

      The bath entry is free for children under 2 years old but older children have to pay full prices tickets.

      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.

    Many thanks
