What You Can Expect

Private Entrance to Gellert Spa in Budapest with Optional Massage

Gellert Spa

Mineral-rich hot springs from deep within Gellert Hill feed Gellert Spa, located on the right bank of the Danube, where an amazing bath culture has developed in Budapest since Turkish times. Constructed in 1918 and decorated with numerous Art Nouveau furnishings, Gellert Spa is famous for its main hall with glass roof, elaborate mosaic walls and detailed stained-glass windows.

Skip the line at the front entrance and head to a separate welcome desk, where an English-speaking host will greet you. With access to your own private changing cabin, prepare to relax and enjoy all the benefits of this historical thermal spa.

Choose from 13 indoor and outdoor pools filled with water from thermal springs. A natural temperature of 170 degrees F (77 Celsius), the thermal water is cooled down to different temperatures at the spa and contains minerals like calcium and magnesium, which are said to be good for your joints! You can also make use of steam chambers, saunas and cold plunge, or dip into the Roman-style swimming pool or outdoor adventure and wave pool.

Afterward, enjoy a shower with your included Gellert Spa gift of shampoo and shower gel. If you choose an upgrade option, enjoy a 30-minute aromatherapy massage or pamper yourself with a refreshing private 60-minute VIP Swedish-style massage in one of the luxurious treatment rooms. Stay at the baths as long as you wish, up until closing time!

Excellent tour well worth the price. Just give yourself extra time as it is all worth it. We did not and missed out on a more relaxing time. The massage was very good and highly recommended. Make sure to being water shoes and a bathing suit and just relax and enjoy.

This spa was so beautiful and less crowded than the Széchenyi Baths. Not too many tourists which makes it wonderful and relaxing.

Great trip spent 4 hours and could have spent more time no problem. Pity wave pool wasn't open but the rest fully made up for it. Great place to visit.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2015

We thoroughly enjoyed our r three hours at this spa which though not overly luxurious provides a very relaxing healing place. We made full use of all the thermal pools and swimming pool. I confess we spent most time in the warmest thermal pool and felt thoroughly refreshed ready for our journey home. There are signs of wear and tear and it was quite busy but it was not a problem. Shower facilities are fine and having use of a private cabin was a real plus. We had an all day pass and could have spent longer but had to leave for our flight home. Do note: headgear must be worn in the swimming pool and caps can be purchased cheaply at the spa. A great experience!

Beautiful spa! We spent all day there. Massages were good, different styles depending on who gave massage. I liked mine but my friend found it too much.
Definately a place to visit while in Budapest.
