New Year’s Opening Hours at Szechenyi Baths

December 30 opening hours: just one day before Dec 31, every year there is a huge pool party to celebrate the end of the year. So on Dec 30 the baths will be open as usual, 6 am – 10 pm. Then the baths reopen at 10.30 pm to let in the thousands of party folks who start to say farewell to the old year in a vibrant electronic disco party known as the Cinetrip Winter edition of the Sparty series. Great DJs, laser shows, performers by the pool, great atmosphere. Party tickets available here.

      Dear Jelena,
      Thank you for your inquiry about services between Dec 24, 2019, and Jan 7, 2020 in the baths. 
      Due to the high number of visitors during the festive winter days, the thermal baths’ managerial decision was made that no fast track entries, cabins (changing cubicles) or massages are sold during these days.
      Guests of day time visit will be checked in on a first-come-first-served basis. As long queues are expected there may be some lines waiting in the cold. Please find more details, advice and other thermal bath alternatives on the following link:

      Thank you for your kind cooperation. Enjoy the thermal baths in winter Budapest and explore some more if it is not your first visit in the city.
