Szechenyi Bath Budapest New Year

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)

Gellert Spa Hotel by Gellert Hill Budapest

Are you planning to visit the Gellert Spa in New Year Budapest break? Yes, you can. Even the outside pools are open at Gellert Baths (if the weather stays above the freezing point).

Gellert Bath at Christmas

Gellert Bath Budapest – You Flavio Photography

Many Budapest travel guides say that Budapest is quiet or dead on New Year’s Day or at Christmas Budapest is silent, but this is not true any more. Budapest Baths are actually open, and are a lot of fun and relaxation for any Budapest tourists in Hungary. Do not miss the Gellert baths in December or January either!

Gellert Bath is open throughout the New Year holiday, you can buy Gellert Spa tickets online in advance or even book a massage in Gellert Spa. See the current NYE and NYD opening hours:

New Year’s Opening Hours

Please check the actual opening hours before making a visit.

  • Dec 31: on New Year’s Eve the opening hours of Gellert Baths are as follows: Gellert Bath is open from 6 am to 6 pm. Great way to get some strength for the New Year’s Eve parties in Budapest! Dec 30 Budapest Bath Party will be held in Szechenyi Baths, not in Gellert Spa.
  • Jan 1: on New Year’s Day, the opening hours of Gellert Bath are as follows: the baths are open from 10 am to 8 pm. What a perfect way to cure any hangover and welcome the new year with healthy resolutions! You can even listen to a concert on New Year’s Day to make January 1 in Budapest really beautiful.

Massage from 16 Euros at Gellert Bath

Luxury Manager Massage Gellert Bath Budapest

Luxury Manager Massage Gellert Bath Budapest

Did you know that you can book a massage at Gellert Bath from approx. 18.3 Euros (20 minutes aroma massage at one of the best thermal spas of Hungary! With a bath ticket from 37.5 Euros! Budapest can be cheap, but this is a really a superb Christmas Deal, we think!) Do not miss out on this fabulous opportunity. Book now in advance, or others will instead of you (Christmas and New Years can get really booked in Budapest, this applies to many New Year’s Eve Parties in Budapest, or Budapest New Year cruises, or massages at Gellert Bath too).

Romantic VIP Bathing at Gellert Baths Budapest

Are you in a mood to splurge with your love of life? You can even book a private bath at the beautiful Art Nouveau complex. The champagne and fruit bowl is included in the price (which is more in the luxury category). See the details of the private bath hire at Gellert Spa here.

Turkish Dome Rudas Bath Budapest

Is Rudas Bath, one of the most popular Turkish baths in Budapest, and the only gender separated Budapest bath open during the New Year holidays? Can you visit the thermal pools and enjoy the medicinal pool facilities? Yes, Rudas Baths is open on New Year too, though the opening hours are somewhat shortened on the holidays.

Rudas Bath in winter

Rudas Bath in winter – Guillaume Baviere Photography

Rudas Baths, just like Szechenyi Baths and Gellert Spa, is open throughout the New Year holidays in Budapest, with the following opening hours:

New Year Opening Times

  • Dec 31: open from 6 am to 6 pm. Enjoy some amazing days in Budapest in a stunning historical building (the old Turkish baths have been expanded with more modern pools and facilities of course)
  • Jan 1: Rudas bath is open from 10 am to 8 pm. Visiting ‘the Rudas’ is a popular way to get over the New Year’s Eve party symptoms (hangover, stress of the new year, etc.), so the earlier you go there, the better the chance to enjoy a less crowded thermal bath

The opening times above have been basically the same at Budapest Baths for the last ten years or so. If you are planning your Budapest New Year trip, you can count on the thermal baths being open on the public holiday dates in December and January in Hungary.

Rudas Bath was one of the party scenes of the awesome Cinetrip parties.

Kiraly Bath Budapest Winter Thermal

Is Kiraly Bath, one of the most popular Budapest baths and the oldest Turkish bath in Budapest, open during the your Budapest New Year holidays? Can you visit the thermal pools and enjoy the thermal and pool facilities in late December and early January? Kiraly Bath is definitely a different experience than Szechenyi Bath or Gellert Spa.

Kiraly Bath Budapest

Kiraly Bath Budapest

Yes, Kiraly Bath is open on New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day too, though the opening hours are somewhat changed on the public holidays in winter.

Many Budapest travel guides say that Budapest is happy and open on New Year’s Eve, but too calm and closed on New Year’s Day, but this is not true any more.

Kirlay Baths, similarly to the two big baths in Budapest, Szechenyi Baths and Gellert Bath, is open throughout the New Year times, with the following opening hours:

New Year Opening Hours

  • Dec 31: the Kiraly Bath is open from 9 am to 6 pm. Enjoy some amazing days in Budapest in a stunning historical building (the old Turkish baths have been expanded with more modern pools and facilities of course)
  • Jan 1: Kiral bath is open from 10 am to 8 pm. Visiting ‘the Kiray’ is a nice way to get over the New Year’s Eve party symptoms (hangover, stress of the new year, etc.). As Kiraly has not been restored yet (unlike Rudas, Gellert or Szechenyi Baths) it is the most authentically ruinous and historical baths currently in the city of Budapest

Kiraly means King in Hungarian, say kee-raay

The opening times above have been basically the same at Budapest Baths for the last ten years or so. If you are planning your Budapest New Year break, you can count on the baths staying open on the public holiday dates in December and January in Hungary.
