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)

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

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).
