Both New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day are quite popular in the thermal bath: book a fast track Szechenyi bath ticket online. If you want a massage in Szechenyi Baths too, reserve it weeks before the NYE holiday, otherwise you will not get a free appointment. You can book a 20 minute aroma massage from approx. 18.3 Euros, or buy your ticket online in advance with a private cabin and fast track entry.

New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day opening hours

  • Dec 31: opening hours from 6am to 6pm (all the facilities in Szechenyi Baths, Budapest)
  • Jan 01: opening hours from 10am to 10pm (all the facilities in Szechenyi Baths, Budapest)

For young tourists under about 40 years of age, the New Year Bath Party in Szechenyi Baths is a must do experience, so if you have nothing to do on December 30, book your NYE Sparty ticket (Dec 30 is not a typo, it is a party before the party)
