If you are visiting Gellert Spa in the winter, please note that the outdoor wave pool is seasonally closed from Nov to May.
Closure of Wave Pool only
2 November 2016 and 14 April 2017 (wave pool only)
Of course, there are about a dozen more pools in Gellert Spa to enjoy inside, which will be open as usual.
Nevertheless, there is a smaller thermal pool outside, next to the summer wave pool, which will be open throughout the colder months as long as the temperature of the air is above zero degree Celsius (32 degrees Fahrenheit). So if you wish to enjoy open air soaking in the natural hot springs of Gellert Spa, you are more than welcome. To make your entrance smooth and fast, you can buy a fast track online ticket to Gellert Spa.
