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.
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.
