Are children allowed into any of the baths?

We will be in Budapest next week and will be travelling with children (ages 6 and 11). Would like to visit the baths (Gellert or Szechenyi) but not sure if kids are allowed in? Does anyone know? Thanks!

In summer time Gellert has vast numbers of kids frolicking around the outdoor pools, as does Szechenyi, and both cater to families. I am not sure what the winter rules are, if there are any differences, and what the other baths do, but the best general starting point is: http://spasbudapest.com/tartalom.php

Should not be a problem going to the indoor pool at the Gellert, but do not take the children into the saunas, certainly not the male only one.

Szechenyi baths welcomes kids all year round - I visited them with my daughter on a cold March day this year and we sat in the outdoor 32-34 Celsius and 38 Celsius pools. I rarely ventured into the indoor pool complex at Szechenyi because the outdoor pools are set in such a beautiful environment. It is a great experience to contrast the cold air temperature and the hot thermal waters. Just remember to bring some shoes for the walk between the change rooms and the pools and maybe some cloth gown/coat to shield you from bitter cold.
