Taking photos in Gellert Spa

Taking photos of the building from the outside is no problem at all. However, taking photos inside the baths is subject to a photo permit provided by the Marketing Department of the Baths.

Please note, that as you take photos of others, they may also take photos of you. According to the general etiquette, it is not considered to be polite to take body pictures of half naked people without their expressed permission, but it is acceptable to take panoramic photos in the baths and pools. Please respect other people’s privacy and refrain from photography if they refused to be on your picture.

Also, please leave your brand new and high tech hand camera or video equipment at home, especially if you would just leave it by the pool while you are in the water and there is no one to take care of them, as your belongings are not insured via the spa entry ticket. Please bear in mind that there are no security cameras observing the pools either. It is you who are fully responsible for looking after both yourself and your valuables. Obviously, the lockers and cabins are for storage. Rarely though, some accidents have happened (e.g. some guests simply forgot to close their locker or cabin door), so please leave your precious items at home rather than taking unnecessary risks.

  3. “taking photos inside the baths is subject to a photo permit provided by the Marketing Department of the Baths”. I would love to take photos inside of the building when I come to Budapest in a few weeks. Not from people but from the architecture. Where can I provide for such a photo permit by the Marketing Department of the Baths?

    • Dear Monique,
      Unfortunately we cannot address your request as the official service provider can be reached at gellert@spabudapest.hu. The thermal bath of Gellert Spa has its own customer relations staff, who should address your request in a timely manner.
      Thank you for your kind cooperation.

    I will be visiting Budapest by end of the month and I would like to seek permission to take photographs inside the bath house with the beautiful architecture of the property. Of course, I would only take photography of myself if I am in it or with my friends. We are a team of 4 people that will be visiting.
