The Basics

Spa tickets offer full-day access to all of the spa facilities, with optional massages and treatments available. For a hassle-free experience, book tickets in advance to benefit from fast-track entry or an optional tour package that includes hotel pickup and drop-off. Another popular choice is to combine a spa day with a romantic dinner cruise along the Danube River. Guided tours of the baths are also available, allowing non-bathers to admire the historic architecture.

Fast entry but ended up queuing at 2 different desks before someone told us where to go - so it took us longer to get in than had we just walked in off the street. Lovely baths inside and quieter than the main baths. Completely contrasting experiences but both enjoyable. If you can only do one, I’d say choose this one for evenings or bad weather as the indoor baths are nicer than the outdoor but the other baths are nicer outside than in.

When to Get There

The baths are open daily all year, and the thermal waters make swimming in the outdoor pools possible even during the winter months. The baths can get busy, especially during the peak summer season, so opt for a weekday visit to avoid the crowds and get there early to enjoy the baths before the mid-afternoon rush.

The Thermal Waters of Gellert Spa

Rising 460 feet (140 meters) over the western flank of the River Danube, Gellért Hill stands above the complex of underground caves and hot springs that feed Budapest’s spa baths. Formed in karstic limestone, the springs provide 18.5 million gallons (70 million liters) of hot, mineral-rich water—with temperatures ranging between 70°F (21°C) and 168°F (76°C)—each day to power the seven major spa complexes in the city. The waters at Gellért Spa are believed to be especially effective in aiding joint pain and bronchial complaints.
