Gellert Baths: Mixed Pools / Saunas
Since January 1, 2013 Gellert Baths has been turned into a completely co-educated spa bath, where all the pools, steams, thermal facilities are open to women and men alike. Toilets and Shower rooms continue to be male and female only. If you wish to visit a thermal bath in Budapest where gender separated areas are available (mostly men only days on weekdays) you can visit Rudas Baths.
Gellert Spa Bath at Night
If you wish to use the thermal pools and bath facilities in the evening in Gellert Spa, you are welcome to stay until 8 pm (pools need to be vacated 15 minutes before closing time).
For late night bath experience, you can visit Szechenyi Bath, whose outdoor pools (2 hot spring thermal pools and 1 cooler swimming pool) is open until 10 pm.
Gellert Spa & Thermal Baths on Public Holidays
If your Budapest visit is scheduled on a public holiday / national holiday in Hungary, do not despair, Szent Gellert Furdo is open even on holidays, in the last few years almost 365 days a year!
Please check the current opening hours for the upcoming public holidays, March 15, Easter, August 20, October 23, November 1, Christmas and New Year times before your planned Budapest visit). The general rule of thumb is that the opening hours might be slightly shorter (or the same as every day), but the ticket prices are like on weekends (somewhat more expensive than on weekdays).
