Gellert Bath

Gellert Bath is the most famous Art Nouveau thermal baths in Budapest, Hungary as well as in Europe. Gellert Spa, founded in 1918, is soon to be 100 years old, and visiting the bath is indeed a beautiful and historical experience. You can visit the main hall free of charge, or spend a whole day of relaxation in the “Palace of Baths” as Gellert Bath is often referred to.

There are 10 pools of various sizes and temperatures. Gellert Bath is open every day from 6 am to 8 pm, even on bank holidays, like May 1, August 20 or Christmas. Besides the outdoor wave pool, which is a big hit in summer months, there are several geothermal pools open to both men and women. Besides, you can get massage treatments: Gellert Spa Massage, enjoy the saunas, the sun bathing terrace looking at the Gellert Hill, and relax by the geothermal pools with some beer, wine, champagne.

As Gellert Bath is actually one building with the spa hotel named Gellert Hotel, you can enjoy a fascinating holiday in one of the best spa hotels in Budapest, or simply enjoy the bath facilities as a bath visitor (Gellert Bath is open to all, adults, children, mean, women, and all its areas are wheelchair accessible)

Fun: try the open air wave pool, and explore the labyrinth of the Art Nouveau palace revealing 8 artistic pools with naturally warm spring waters. Both Szechenyi Bath and Gellert Bath are a maze. We recommend getting your own Gellert Spa Map to aid your exploration.

Relaxing: soak in the geothermal waters coming from deep under Gellert Hill all day long, summer or winter, and book a massage in advance to enhance the effectiveness of the waters’ healing powers.

Historical: the spring waters of Gellert Bath were discovered in the 15th century, by the 1920s hundreds of thousands of bathers were enjoying the natural healing powers of the geothermal waters. Explore the elegant palace and historical beauty of Gellert Bath.

Special: the entry prices of Gellert Bath are certainly not cheap, but it also ensures that Gellert Bath is not packed with thousands of bathers (like Szechenyi Bath). Enjoy the space, the beauty and the high quality professional services. You can add a 20 min aroma massage therapy (prices from approx. €18) to your bath entry (€19) with a private cabin.

Massage Treatments: massage treatments are very well priced. Please check out the massage packages (tickets, cabin and massage) on the left in the booking form.
