Located in Budapest’s City Park, the Széchenyi Baths were built in 1913 and completed in 1927. Locals and visitors alike come to enjoy the city’s largest and warmest thermal spa, with a plethora of indoor and outdoor pools, including spring-fed baths.

Begin your day by skipping the long lines of the main entrance and heading to the rear, where an English-speaking host greets you. You’re led to your own locker or changing cabin so you can prepare for a full day of relaxation. Under the stunning interior domes, make your way from pools to saunas and steam rooms at your own pace. The temperature varies for each of the 18 pools, with the large outdoor swimming pool at a temperature of 84 degrees Fahrenheit (27 degrees Celsius) or the steaming pool at 106 degrees Fahrenheit (38 degrees Celsius), a fine place to sit back and treat your muscles. Don’t worry about the time while you pool hop; this ticket provides full-day access.

If you’re in the mood to top off the day with a little more luxury, upgrade to include a relaxing massage, which includes a spa gift bag.

Sold us a ticket but was closed
Sally_S

We booked the spa which was amazing would completely recommend! The Palinka museum was closed for the 4 days we were there (it opened Thursday 02/12/21 at 17:30 but we’d left by then). This is completely false advertising as we booked the ticket for Tuesday (30/11/21) so why would you sell us a ticket if it’s not open? Not impressed at all!

Buy tickets on the door

Arrived at baths and there was a huge queue - very disorganised- nobody sure where to go -online tickets v buy at counter - when we eventually got in there was no QR code on my online purchase and I was sent to 3 locations to try and resolve this - we were eventually allowed in to use our CABIN - changing room - we paid over €30 per head and is less that €15 on the door - there was no tour or no polenka as ticket suggested and nobody aware of what we had purchased. The baths were lovely but not worth the €124 we paid for two adults and two children - completely ripped off

Huge hassle getting into the spa as the supplier did not provide on their voucher all that was promised in the booking. The spa person finally let us in and did provide towels and flip flops so we could dry off. The spa itself was wonderful and I would recommend going there. Just do not use this supplier as their voucher to the spa was for approx. $32 US and we paid $140 US for the hassles.

The baths were super. However the booking site needs updating. Despite booking online the tickets did not have a bar code so we still had to que. Towels are no longer for rent and have to be bought.
