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!

    We are 9 women visiting Budapest mid September. How does the booking work, what do you pay for and what are the prices? The most important question is: Do you allow burkinis (bathing suit for muslim women where the hair and body is covered)?

    Best regards

  2. We want to visit on the 1 oct 2022 but booking doesn’t allow. When will i be able to?

  3. Do you have hair drying facilities? Or plugs to use hair dryers?

      Dear Beth,
      You can find hairdryers and mirrors in the changing rooms/shower areas.
      Plugs are also available.
      Have a lovely time in Budapest!

  4. Hi! Where checking out of our hostel on Monday but we still have a full day for Budapest and we were thinking of visiting the Szechenyi Baths. Are your lockers big enough to store luggage carryon size Suitcase?

    Best regards

      Hello Ziga,
      We suggest the tickets with cabins for you.
      The cabin is like a tiny room, or cubicle, which can store a standard check in suitcase easily.
      The cabin size is approx. that of a dressing room in a clothes shop, so you can leave there the 20 kg suitcase as well ( if it is a regular size) along with your jackets etc.

      The door of the cabin has a unique chip code lock, which opens and closes with a special waterproof bracelet: in fact, with the chip incorporated in the wristband bath entry provided at the bath. Please make sure that your door is locked with the silicon wristband before leaving the cabin. As you are wearing the band all the times, it is quite secure if you make sure that the door is not left open.

      The size of the locker is 120x30x65 cm (1200 x 300 x 650 mm)., so it would be too small for your bags.
      The lockers are also opened and closed by your wristband.

      Hope we can welcome you at Szechenyi Spa Baths!

    Thank you in advance!
