Király Baths

Kiràly Bath is one of the oldest baths in Budapest. The structure is very elegant, offering a number of treatments and services.

Kiràly Baths are one of the most popular thermal baths in Budapest. The complex dates back to 1565; the construction works began by Arslan the Pasha of Buda during the Ottoman reign in Hungary and ended a few years later by his successor Sokollu Mehmet.

In 1769 the bath was acquired by the German family König. They restored and extended the complex preserving its original Turkish touch. To date the structure is still an authentic work of art that fascinates whomever visit it.

Back in the past Kiràly bath had no direct hot water base, nor has it today. The water is supplied by the surrounding Lukàcs baths through an old, larch wood aqueduct. There is a specific reason behind this unusual architectural choice: the Turks built the complex far from the springs in order to ensure the possibility of using hot water even in case of siege.

The Kiràly Spa has been temporarily closed since 2020, pending total renovation.
