Uniqueness of the place is the key; I was intrigued, as even in winter its water's temperature is about +40 degree above zero (Celsium)! If you visit Hungary, try it! PS And yes, it is not allowed to swim there - just be hanged on a swimming tyres as a fishing float! You'll get amazing feeling of relaxation after that... More

....but for the service at the cash. We didn't want to bath, but we would like to see the lake (from outside you see almost nothing...) we asked to the girl at the cash to buy visitors tickets, but she suddenly appeared disappointed and she treated us very badly, and we went away buying nothing. Not a very nice experience!... More

Prices are reasonable, the lake is superb! You can buy 3/10/12 hours tickets, you got a locker for that and the entry fee.

Ok, I don't like lakes...OK, I can cope with Sirmione on the lake Garda... BUT! This lake is magnificent! If you want - you can swim...if you want you can relax and just floating in +33C mineral waters... it is clean...it make you feel like a baby...calm and inaugurated... Budapest is a great city...but if you will chose to go... More

A place free of many tourists, it was outstanding! The thermal lake and spa were an adventure. But buy a flotation device before going in or at the spa. Don't miss the mud bath. An incredible experience and a must do in Hungary. You leave feeling relaxed and rejuvenated. Just a car ride away from Budapest.

There is a visitor's ticket for 700 ft had lake ticked (just like the standard 3-h-lake ticket) and is valid for 30 minutes. Exactly what you are looking for when the spa is on your journey and you want to get an idea how it is... however, we missed the little asterisk indicating that it does not include swimming (what...

The Curative lake of Heviz is the largest biologically active, natural, peat and thermal lake of volcanic origin in the world. It is surrounded by a beautiful forest which protects from the wind The St Andrew Hospital for Rheumatic Diseases is located on the west side of the lake.

We went in the morning, it's very nice and water was warm, not too hot, but body warm, eve it was a little crowded ,both by tourists and locals, they don't seem to bother you, as the lake is big enough for a lot of people, the things I did not like is about the Health Spa, it's too far... More

Had a great time there. You may find the lake scary if you can't swim :) The surroundings are lovely too.
