Palatinus Water Park, Budapest

Palatinus Water Park, Budapest (must see)

Budapest's most popular water park – located on Margaret Island at Palatinus Strand (Beach) – rests atop a natural hot spring that makes the area a great spa location. With various-size outdoor pools, including one of the wave variety, the venue is family-friendly and can be enjoyed by all. A great alternative to the more crowded baths in the city center – perfect to sort out your travel aches and pains!

The huge swimming area covers 300 sq m of the park and the pool is 100m long. There is a women-only section (for nude sunbathing) as well as a mixed area.

The surrounding beach and park complex is a very popular location for nude sunbathing, walking, and eating. Here you may also find many games to play, from billiards to ping-pong. There is plenty to do here to enjoy an entire afternoon.

The facility has been in operation since 1919 when it was first opened as a beach. The large pool was built in 1919, and the larger complex was completed in 1937. In the 1980s, more of the modern water park features were completed, and the whole park was renovated in 2002.

Tip:
Make sure to walk around the whole place as there are many different pools and fun things to discover.
A mixture of salads, chips, local food, crepes, etc. is available (and affordable) for your pre/mid/post-swim needs so you don't have to worry about refueling.

Opening Hours:
Daily: 8am-8pm
