What You Can Expect

Private Entrance to Széchenyi Spa in Budapest with Optional Massage

Szechenyi Spa

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 will greet you. You’ll be led to your own 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.

When you’re finally ready to head out, use your Széchenyi Spa gift of shampoo and shower gel to rinse off in the shower. If you’re in the mood to top off the day with a little more luxury, upgrade to include a 20-minute aromatherapy massage. To see a map of Széchenyi Spa, please click on 'View Additional Info'.

Highly reccommend this! Having the personal locker, towels and flip flops was great. This is a must see and do while in Budapest. Make sure you have lots of time. This was half way through a very busy 2 weeks trips and a welcomed afternoon of relaxation.

Incredible experience of a spa bath especially if like us it is your first time in such a facility, I find it hard to believe there is a better spa in Budapest than this one, located close to the City Centre we walked to it from the Danube though it is a good walk and not recommended for those who don't like to walk too far the building itself is a piece of history, we first arrived at the wrong entrance and were told in no uncertain terms that the tourist entrance was elsewhere the right entrance is the one that looks out to the Hero Square area. Having found the right entrance we were quickly dealt with in a more respectful manner. We booked a package which included a cabin that comes with free flip flops, name embroidered towel which we were told we could keep as a souvenir bottle of water and bath cap. We highly recommend using a cabin where you can secure all your property and return to it whenever you want. We were not given the promised tour of the facilities though and really could have done with one as there are many options, although our package gave us access from 9am to 6pm arrival but you can stay till 10pm once your in we didn't think we would want to spend that much time there and did not arrive until around 5:30pm, we were wrong, we could have spent the day there, as is was we enjoyed ourselves in the outdoor spa where the temperature outside the pool was 1 degree but 28 degrees in the water, it was a really relaxing experience and we loved it, we also saw an indoor pool there are apparently a number of them another outdoor pool with one of them whirlpool areas that sweep you round in a circle on the current and a large standard style pool with roped off areas so you can swim lengths like in a normal swimming pool, there are drinks and snacks available for purchase both indoors and outdoors but you are quite rightly not allowed to take drinks or food into the spa pool with you, they must be eaten either outdoors on the side of the pools or in the indoor café area. There is also a designated smoking area outside. We added a Thai massage with oils each to our visit which we paid for separately on the night and thoroughly enjoyed that albeit quite painful lol we felt the benefits the next day and the tired muscles of previous days walking around the city were melted away. We would highly recommend a visit to this attraction when visiting Budapest though we would not recommend it for children as their internal body system cannot handle the heat in the same way adults can and I say this as a qualified Jacuzzi maintenance person, certainly in the UK children under 11 are not allowed to use Jacuzzi's. We did not see any children present on our visit, it was mostly groups and couples of all ages and sizes though a lot of early/mid 20's people were there. I am 61 but did not feel out of place.

you couldn't go to Budapest without going to the spa's everyone talks about them and I can see why, they are truly amazing, very crowded but that is to be expected I am glad that we went there.

This was a don't miss! Especially if you have been traveling a lot and you have a warm sunny day. There are people of all countries and ages who frequent the baths. It is very organized and we particularly loved it. We did this on our last day in Europe after 55 days there and it was a wonderful end to our travels

This was one of my to do things while in Budapest. Although it was a little intimidating as I was by myself, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience while at the thermal baths. As I walked in a woman noticed the piece of paper I was holding and showed me where to go. They had my reservation and gave me by bracelet/key. After finding my way downstairs to the locker rooms and renting my towel, my towel disappeared. A Hungarian woman, who spoke no English, tried to help me find it, with no luck. Even though it was a weekday, the baths were crowded as this is a popular tourist attraction. The facility was beautiful and very clean. I spent several hours there just soaking in the scenery and watching the people. I would highly recommend this.

Wonderful experience, no wait in line, I was given my towel and escorted to my cabin quickly. The subway is very close as well.

We arrived at the spa around 10:30 on a Sunday morning by way of the subway and they were already quite crowded so we were unable to find a seat. That being said, having the private changing room was perfect. We found the staff to be quite helpful and the pools to be clean and refreshing after a long day of travel the previous day. I would recommend this experience to anyone visiting Budapest.
