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.

    Hello I am hoping to book a day at Gellert Spa next Monday 23rd July for 4 people. With your online system can I book entry online tickets for 2 of us and massages for the other 2? Also is it better to book the massage in advance or is Monday availability generally good? Thank you

    • Hello Joanna,
      yes, it is possible in 2 separate transactions (2 tickets in the first booking and 2 massages with tickets in the 2nd booking).
      We recommend booking the massages in advance, as massage hours are limited and are often booked up 1-2 days ahead.

    • Dear Sissel,

      thank you for your email.

      I am afraid, at the moment, booking is only possible until Sunday, as the 2019 rates are not confirmed yet.
      We will open the bookings for after 6 January next week.

      Please get back to us in due time.
