Széchenyi Thermal Bath

Relish the remarkable experience of a bath party and relax in one of the 18 pools of Budapest’s famous hot spring water.

Széchenyi Thermal Bath is among the largest thermal spring spas in Europe. Its natural hot water is used for medicinal purposes to aid degenerative joint illnesses and inflammations. Admire the neo-Baroque style of the buildings and the pools that date back to the turn of the 20th century.

Peruse the three outdoor and 15 indoor pools that make use of 1,600,000 gallons (6,000,000 liters) of water from two springs. Choose the water with your optimum temperature from the varied pools. Intriguing features include water massages and a whirlpool. Watch locals playing chess by the side of the pool. Witness the atmospheric setting at night in the steamy outdoor water.

Spend some time in the sauna or steam room to rest your body after all the sightseeing in Budapest. Enjoy one of the relaxing massage services, pedicures or facial treatments on offer. Take a guided tour of the palace and its baths. Meditation, fruit bowls and tea are offered in the spa of Palm House.

Attend one of the bath parties on Saturday nights during the summer. Join hundreds of revelers for drinks and music in the outdoor pools. The site’s café has indoor and terrace seating. Relax with some snacks to regain some energy after massages and pool therapy.

The spa takes its name from 19th-century Hungarian politician István Széchenyi, who played a part in the construction of the Széchenyi Chain Bridge. It historically separated men and women, but today is open to both sexes together.

Purchase a ticket that includes a private cabin and lasts all day. The outdoor baths remain open from early morning until late at night, while the indoor baths and steam rooms close a few hours earlier. Rent towels and swimming costumes from the site.

The Széchenyi Thermal Bath is in City Park in the northeastern section of the city. Take a bus from the city center to the spa in around 15 minutes. Ride the subway to the Széchenyi fürdö metro stop beside the baths. Nearby attractions include Budapest Zoo and Vajdahunyad Castle.
