The Night of Baths is a one night Spa Baths Festival – or better to think of it as a night party series slash ‘bath crawling’ – all over Budapest, Hungary. It is a special night for several reasons.

First of all, you can buy tickets very favourably to take a relaxing thermal bath.
Secondly, your ticket will be valid to be used at most Budapest thermal baths which are open in winter time (note, the temperature at nights is in minuses in Budapest).
Thirdly, there are some special events, programmes, concerts, DJs, fire jugglers, 3D building mapping at some baths. The night programme usually starts at 10 pm late in the evening and finishes at around 3am at night. Sounds fun right? It is. Budapest Night of Baths is duly popular amongst locals and tourists alike. All in all, taking part in the Night of Baths in Budapest is one of the best programmes you can choose in November.
Where is the Night of Baths in Budapest? Well, basically at all the major thermal spa baths in Budapest: the number 1 tourist attraction in Budapest, Szechenyi Baths, the Art Nouveau luxurious Gellert Baths, the Turkish and contemporary mix of Rudas Baths, the Turkish ruin like Kiraly Baths, and the less well known and least touristy Lukacs Baths.
The entrance fees are cheaper than on other days, recently the tickets to the Night of Baths were about HUF 2,490 (in advance) – HUF 2,990 (on the day of the event). Great bargain considering that your one ticket entitles you to multiple entries to all the venues.
The upcoming dates of the next Budapest Night of Baths event are usually only published a few weeks before the event. There has been various dates of the Budapest Night of Baths Festival in the last few years, e.g. in November, February, March. Please check out the Budapest Events Guide for the upcoming dates of the bath festival.
