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.

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).

  4. Good evening,
    can you explain the different price about Gellert Spa :

    Ticket & Cabin or Ticket & Cabin Weekday or Ticket & Locker or Ticket & Locker Weekday?

    And please can also confirm the open time to stay till 7.45 on 25th December 2018?
    Best regards.

    • Dear Matteo,
      all tickets are sold with some kind of storage, lockers or cabins.
      The cabin is like a tiny room, or cubicle, where you can get changed and store your belongings.
      The door of the cabin has a unique chip code lock, which opens and closes with a special waterproof bracelet: in fact, with the chip incorporated in the wristband bath entry provided at the bath. Please make sure that your door is locked with the silicon wristband before leaving the cabin. As you are wearing the band all the times, it is quite secure if you make sure that the door is not left open.

      The size of the locker is 120x30x65 cm (1200 x 300 x 650 mm).,if you choose lockers you can get changed in the public changing rooms (men and women separated).
      The lockers are also opened and closed by your wristband.

      Yes, Gellert Spa will be open until 8pm on Dec 25, please see the Christmas opening hours on the link below:
