Gellert Spa, Budapest

2.2
#3 of 120 in Spas in Hungary
Combine the medicinal healing of Gellert Spa with the rich history of the famous Hotel Gellért. Explore the grand hotel and baths, which opened in 1918, and view the stunning main hall, marble balconies, and ornate mosaic terraces. Learn about the hot thermal springs, dating back to the 13th century, and the site itself, which was a hospital during the Middle Ages and a bath during Ottoman rule. The beautiful Art Nouveau women's bath was destroyed during World War II but has been rebuilt and renovated multiple times--as recently as 2008--to restore it to its original grandeur. Experience the natural healing powers of these springs, which supposedly can help relieve joint pain, inflammation, asthma, and other issues, or simply relax in the pools for a spa day. Take a look at our Budapest planner to schedule your visit to Gellert Spa and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

  • Many different pools that can be tricky to find. Did not really understand the system. Very beautiful bath. A little bit of fun that it took a swimming cap in the big pool, but not in the others. Well worth a visit.

  • This Spa is not the most typical of the Turkish baths of Budapest but swimming under a glass dome c is very exotic especially that it is necessary to respect the swimming in the opposite direction of the hands of a watch the hot baths are also to test perfect cleanliness
