Full description

Book your full-day ticket to the Széchenyi Bath in advance and avoid the long wait in the queue at the entrance. Additionally, take advantage of complimentary tasting of Hungary's famous spirit "pálinka" on an optional guided tour inside the Pálinka Museum. The Széchenyi Bath is the largest thermal spring bath complex not only in Budapest but in Europe as well. It was built in 1913 in a Neo-baroque style. At the time it opened its baths were private, having separate steam baths for men and women, as well as different public baths for men and women. In 1927, the spa complex was expanded and today it comprises 3 outdoor and 15 indoor pools. After its expansion, the thermal artesian wasn’t adequate to supply the spa, so a new well was drilled. The second thermal spring dates from 1938. Towels and swimsuits are available for purchase only, no rental. Please note that swimsuits that cover the entire body are not permitted. During your visit, blow off some steam at the pools of Széchenyi Spa (built-in 1913.), which is Europe’s largest healing bath with its’ 15 indoor, and 3 grand outdoor pools. Pools are of varying temperatures, between 18 to 38 °C (64 to 100 °F), and complex covering 6220 square meters (67000 sq ft) also includes saunas and steam bath. Afterward, discover a hidden gem in the city center to taste some Hungarian pálinka (spirits; non-alcoholic drinks are also available). Differently from whiskey or vodka, pálinka is made exclusively from different sorts of fruits and has an aromatic smell.

Inside the Pálinka Museum's interactive exhibits, you will learn about its birth, tradition, and history. That’s why Hungary's Pálinka Act of Parliament exists which regulates and protects the production and quality of palinka.

A highly recommended spa to visit, it is preferable to go around noon because in the afternoon it fills up with many people so you can enjoy a little more quiet. We took advantage of that morning to do an imperial tour that ends there, so it was a great day. As for the spa, the truth is that it has all the possible thermal water pools and inside it is very good. You can store your things in the lockers with the bracelet that they give you at the entrance, you do not need a lock. You only need a hat if you go to the central pool to swim in the rest of the pools with your hair tied up. It was a very cool experience and you leave there very relaxed.

Very good and pleasant experience that helped me to relax after 3 intense days visiting the city. I don't give it excellent due to the amount of people who occupied certain places for too long, not allowing us to enjoy some of the experiences. Otherwise, I really liked it and recommend it.

Super arranged, scan code and you're in. The facilities are good at the spa. It's also great that your locker works with a wristband. You do have to be there very early to be able to have a bed outside. We didn't have that, but we didn't suffer from it either. towel on a sort of coat rack, flip flops off and into the water. There are also pockets inside for your towel. It says you must have a swimming cap, this is only if you want to swim laps. You can't go in that bath without a bathing cap. The indoor pools are wonderfully warm, up to 38°. Inside, steam cabins and saunas are freely accessible. It was very busy with us, but we did not suffer from the fact that we could not take a bath. Outside it is very large and inside are 15 baths. There is good food, also not unimportant. And many toilets.
