Bonus

Take advantage of a complimentary tasting of Hungary's famous spirit "pálinka" on an optional guided tour inside the Pálinka Museum when you buy your full-day ticket to the Széchenyi Bath in advance.

Inside the Pálinka Historical center's intelligent displays, you will find out about its introduction to the world, custom, and history. Because of this, the Pálinka Act of Parliament in Hungary regulates and safeguards palinka production and quality.

About The Széchenyi Spa

The spa complex was expanded in 1927, and it now has three outdoor and fifteen indoor pools. The thermal artesian was expanded, but it was no longer sufficient to supply the spa, so a new well was drilled. In 1938 the second thermal spring was built.

Relax in the 1913-built pools of the Széchenyi Spa during your visit., which is Europe's largest healing spa, with 15 indoor and three enormous outdoor pools. The temperatures of the pools range from 18 to 38 °C (64 to 100 °F). Saunas and a steam bath are also part of the 6220 square meter (67000 square feet) complex.

After that, go to a hidden gem in the city center to try some Hungarian pálinka, which is a drink made of spirits; There are also non-alcoholic beverages available). Pálinka, in contrast to vodka or whiskey, is made solely from a variety of fruits and has an aromatic scent.

We had a lovely afternoon just chilling. The sauna was really hot but the steam room was just right. After flying and travelling on Friday afternoon and an early museum start on Saturday morning this was just the thing. Relax in warm waters and even have a drink if you like. I could have easily gone to sleep. We didn't book any treatments but they looked value for money.

We stayed in Pest and got the metro to the baths which was really easy. When we arrived the instructions given were straight forward on how to get access. The baths did not disappoint, I was with a group of friends, 15 in total. It was a beautiful day, very relaxing and couldn’t believe how many baths there is inside. The time flew, we arrived at 11am and left a 4.30 pm. The sun was out and just enjoyed the whole day. Definitely a must do on your last day to relax after doing lots of walking and Segway tour.

Easy to use ticket. Just exchanged it at the counter. Pools were nice and expansive. Went early in the morning as the pools fill up quickly. Once at the baths they also have beer baths upstairs that you can use for an extra 40-60 euros with free beer to drink. Also went to the Palinka museum afterwards. Short tour and a Glass of Palinka included. Enjoyable experience

Loved the Thermal Spa - staff were great when I felt unwell, supported me and ensured I was ok later. Very busy though.

We walked from the city centre which took around 30 minutes, we then showed our ticket and we then had access to the spa the full day. I would recommend getting a room to get changed as this isn’t much of an extra cost. Drinks and food inside are not overly expensive however it can be difficult to find a bed so I would recommend going early.

The baths are iconic and are a must when you’re in Budapest. Took away a star because we purchased 4 day passes with private changing house. When I checked in the man said “you have 4 rooms, one family only needs one room”. So I took his advice, and despite paying for 4 rooms we got a key to only one changing room and we could not all fit. The rooms are designed for 1-2 people max. So we had to take turns going in and changing. So they have my money for the 4 rooms and got to resell the 3 other rooms I paid for that was suggested we not to take.

Overall the baths were very enjoyable and relaxing. We went in late September so it was not nearly as busy as some of the reviews mention in the summer however it was a little cooler and did rain for a bit. Definitely would recommend checking this out

We loved our trip. very relaxing once we were in. A little confusing with 'picking up the tickets' as it's the same desk that you buy normal tickets from. All of the private cabins were in use when we got there so they offered a locker instead which was fine. need to take your own towel and flipflops as advised on the ticket info.

A really good experience, the pools were so warm and when the sun was out - it was so nice to be outside in the fresh air! Great to have a cabin to change in and store clothes too. (it was only a few EUR more) The only negative thing was the queue to get the entrance wristband was huge and so it took about half an hour to get into the spa! It was a Sunday lunchtime, so maybe it was just a busy day? Would definitely recommend this though, so unique.
