Are you looking for an exclusive and very special experience in one of Budapest's most famous spas?
This city is the only capital in the world with so much thermal water under the surface. One of the most popular baths, which uses this wonderful equipment, is the Gellért with its fabulous art nouveau and its extensive pampering offer.
Although you may have heard of this facility, you probably don't know what this huge bathroom is hiding under its floors.
A professional local guide will introduce you to the experience by telling you about Gellért's 2000 year history and guiding you "behind the scenes" to places where visitors are normally not allowed. If you walk down several stairs, you will explore the water supply system and the huge machines that operate this facility.
The tour takes you to one of the oldest fountains in Budapest, deep below the bath. This water source is no longer used, but is still in operation. Go to the centre of the fountain and marvel at the large amount of hot thermal water that surrounds you! You can even dip your toe if you want.
After ascending from the lowest point of the tour, the next destination will be an even more wondrous, hidden area of the bath. Right next to the current well is a hundreds of metres long tunnel that was once used for transporting water between the city's baths. Today the tunnel is abandoned and very rich in natural formations. Prepare yourself for high humidity and the strong smell of thermal water! The most breathtaking part of the tunnels is experiencing the wonders of nature in a beautiful cave that opens directly from the tunnel. You can explore this extremely rare sight and experience how the thermal water has shaped its curved forms over several millennia.
This 45-minute tour is a truly unique and unforgettable journey into a world that remains unexplored for most visitors to Budapest, unveiling a whole new, amazing side of the Gellért Spa with secrets at every turn.
