What You Can Expect

Private Entrance to Széchenyi Spa in Budapest with Optional Massage

Szechenyi Spa

The Széchenyi Spa (also known as Széchenyi Baths), Budapest’s largest and warmest thermal spa, boasts numerous indoor and outdoor pools – including 15 indoor spring-fed baths. Built in a beautiful neo-Baroque style in 1913 and completed in 1927, the spa is located in the City Park opposite the City Circus.

Skip the main entrance line and head to the rear entrance, where an English-speaking host will greet you. From here, gain access to your own changing cabin and get ready to pamper yourself at this amazing complex!

Choose from 18 pools of varying temperature, filled with water from thermal springs. A natural temperature of 170 degrees Fahrenheit (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! Check out the large outdoor swimming pool with a temperature of 84 F (27 C); relieve sore muscles in a warm pool with jets; or watch men play chess in a steaming pool of 106 F (38 C).

Inside, under several beautiful domes, soak in more hot pools or adjacent steam rooms and saunas. When you’re warm enough, take a cold plunge or enjoy a shower with your included Széchenyi Spa gift of shampoo and shower gel. If you choose the upgrade option, relax with a 30-minute aromatherapy massage. Feel free to stay as long as you’d like, up until closing time!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2015

At first we had the impression of entering into a castle. People very pleasant, good explanations on how to proceed. The number of pools and baths is amazing. There were lot of people since the weather was just perfect on that day. Everything is clean and neet. We intended to spend approximately 3hours, but we nearly spent the whole day. Also received a massage. Very Professional technicians. No English spoken with them, but we understood what to do. Massages different from those given in Canada, more technical and medical in a way, but very performing. We fell great at the end.

There were 6 of us who visited after an overnight flight from North America. There are quite a few different pools of varying temperatures as well as saunas and steam rooms. There are 3 large ones outside, the middle one being for lane swimming use of a swim cap is enforced for this pool. There were two other pools for soaking -one very warm and the other a little cooler. We visited in the afternoon and they ran out of cabins however as we were couples, we could share we had 5 between the 6 of us. You can also get food and drink here. Nice relaxing afternoon after the overnight flight.

I went here the day after Sziget festival ended. I really needed to relax and the hot baths and sauna rooms were just what I needed to get all the grime off of me. Thanks.

Could have spent all day there. Changing rooms excellent. Food, drink available at very reasonable prices. Just remember that you need a skull cap if you want to do serious swimming
