fifteen things to keep in mind when Visiting  gellert spa

Christmas hours

During Christmas times, Gellert Baths follow slightly altered timings. On Dec 24, 25, 26, and Jan 1, this Budapest attraction is open from 12 noon to 6 pm.

Winter timings

The winter timings remain the same. However, the outdoor Wave Pool gets closed from October to May. All indoor pools continue to operate throughout the year.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit Budapest’s Gellert Thermal Baths is 10 am. If you can’t make it in the morning, the next best time is 1.30 pm; by 3.30 pm, the pools get crowded.


Lockers are standard wardrobe-type boxes with a lock to ensure the safety of items inside. If booking a ticket with Lockers, you must change in the women-only / men-only public changing rooms.


Cabins are small-sized changing rooms with enough storage facilities. Since there is only enough space for one person to change at a time, couples or families are known to take turns changing.


After the validation at the entrance, a must-wear Smart Silicon wristband is provided, and if lost, an extra fee is paid to get one. This wristband helps to lock and unlock the lockers and Cabins.
