Budapest: Széchenyi Spa Full Day with Optional Pálinka Tour

1. Budapest: Széchenyi Spa Full Day with Optional Pálinka Tour

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.

It was amazing. I had no issues when checking in. If you go at register 3 as they mention it works perfectly. I do recommend getting a cabin. For such a small amount it is worth it. I went straight from the train station with my luggage and it fit fine. Went on Sunday at 12, and it was alright, didn't feel too crowded. You can definitely spend a whole day, also they have food if you want to grab lunch/ dinner, as a vegetarian I was happy to see they have some veggie options as well. Also the palinka tour is lovely and the shot delicious, worth it!

There are an abundance of different temperature options baths along with multiple saunas and steam rooms. I was happy that the price included a safe locker that I can store my belongings which was locked with a wristband (included).

Πολύ ωραια εμπειρία! Οπωσδήποτε να πάρετε καμπίνα για τα πράγματα σας. Να πάρετε και καλή παρέα να απολαύσετε τις πισίνες με τις διαφορετικές θερμοκρασίες και τις σάουνας!

Super nice experience to live in a superb setting. Several spots are available, whether large or private swimming pools, saunas, hammams, and even a Beer Spa;)

You can completely relax and it is worth seeing the beautiful buildings.
