  1. Hello!

    I am sending this message just to make it clear as for the closing time for renovation. I’ve researched the website and there’s a big bold red announcement that says ” From Jun 25, 2022, the spa closes its gates due to restoration works ” but in the comment and FAQ s the date of 1st June is mentioned. Can you please confirm me the period when it closes?

    And also, if it will still be open this week, do we have to book a massage in advance in case we want to benefit from one?

  2. Hi,

    Is the renovation still starting on June 25th?

    • Hello Stephanie,
      yes, the renovation date was first announced for June 1, but afterwards, it has been delayed to Jul 6.
      Hope we can welcome you at Gellert Spa!

  3. Good afternoon,
    I’ve just noticed the renovation period has been postponed started from July 6th.
    Is there any chance that it will be postponed again?
    I’m asking just because I booked a flight to come there on July 8th especially for coming at Gellert Spa, and it would be really sad find them closed.

    Thank you very much,

    • Hello Thomas,
      yes, it is technically possible. Please check our website closer to the date.
      Have a lovely time in Budapest!


    Are E-tickets available. We will be arriving in Budapest on June 15th. Can myu tickets be sent to me by E-mail? I live in USA

    Is it _really_ recommended to wear a mask in the baths?
    As a Finn this sounds quite extraordinary (I would probably faint if I wore a mask in a sauna) -?

    Yours sincerily,
    Ulrika, Finland

    • Hello Ulrika,
      masks are only recommended in the dressing rooms/ corridors but not inside the pools, steam rooms or saunas. Generally speaking if you are not in a busy place surrounded by people you can take it off.
      Hope we can welcome you at Gellert Spa!

  6. Are you open on July 4th morning? How can I book?

    • Hello Ashka,
      yes, Gellert Baths will be open on Jul 4. You can buy entries upon arrival.
      Have a lovely summer holiday in Budapest!
