Understanding the Gellert Baths

Thermal baths

At the Gellert Baths, you can enjoy the use of the many indoor and outdoor pools, all differing in size and temperature.

Plan Your Visit to the Gellert Baths

When visiting the Gellert Baths, you want to make sure that you make the most of your time there, especially if you'll only be able to visit once during your trip to Budapest.

With so many options of spa treatments, swimming pools and baths to indulge in while at the Gellert Baths, you should plan your visit accordingly, so that you can make the most of your time there.

How much time to spend there

How much time you should spend at the Gellert Baths really depends on the type of experience that you want to enjoy.

For example, if you just want to spend a few hours in the swimming pools, immersion pools and thermal baths then you won't require as much time there as if you want to spend the whole day enjoying various spa and medical treatments.

There really is no set time that you should spend at the Gellert Baths; some locals in Budapest may only spend 15 minutes to half an hour there on a morning before work, whereas some tourists can spend the entire day at the Gellert Baths, using every possible facility that they can.

Clothes to Wear, rent towels etc.

The rules of clothing at the Gellert Baths is very similar to many other thermal baths in the world; you should ensure that you have decent clothes that cover private areas.

Women are permitted to wear bikinis and swimming caps aren't a requirement in 9 of the thermal pools (but are required in the swimming pool). As long as you're appropriately and decently dressed, then your time at the Gellert Baths will be perfectly enjoyable.

If you forget to bring your own towel, or just choose not to, you can rent towels from the Gellert Baths for a small rental fee.

What to bring with you

When it comes to considering what to bring with you when visiting the Gellert Baths, it really is quite straightforward.

You'll of course need your money to purchase your ticket (that is, if you haven't purchased it online beforehand), your swimming clothes, towels, soap and shampoo, swimming cap and any food and drink you may require throughout the day.

You don't have to bring your own food with you as there is a buffet available at the Gellert Baths but you may prefer to bring your own in order to save money and for convenience.

How much do the Gellert thermal baths cost in Budapest?

The cost of visiting the Gellert Baths depends on the time of year you visit, in particular which season as well as the days of the week.

You can choose from daily tickets, or if you're a regular attendant of the Baths, you may prefer to invest in a season ticket.

The spa is free of charge for children under the age of two; it's also important to bare in mind that the thermal spring water is not suitable for children under the age of 14.
