Széchenyi Baths

Largest outdoor communal thermal pool in Budapest

The Széchenyi Baths, built in 1913, has become one of the new most widely known thermal spas in all of Hungary. Its prime location in the City Park allows for maximum exposure to the public, especially crowds of visiting guests. The baths showcase a neo-Baorque style of architecture and is constructed in front of the historical Szechenyi Furdo, originally built by Győző Czigler in 1909. Co-ed bathing is allowed at all times, and because the baths are family-friendly, everyone can come along. The Széchenyi Baths also offers a more luxurious lounge-like option, called the Palm House Spa, for those wanting more of a resort spa feel, including amenities such as fresh fruit, tea and private changing cabins. General admission tickets are more on the affordable side and usually run for about $6USD. It does tend to get a little more crowded during popular tourism seasons, so plan accordingly. If you’d like a more private experience at these times, perhaps try one of the other baths mentioned.

The spa offers:

  • 18 thermal pools (15 indoor, 3 outdoor)
  • 10 saunas/steam cabins
  • massage therapy/facial services

*Spa packages are also available for those desiring a combination of spa/therapy services.
