About
The lake of Hévíz is the biggest biologically active, natural medicinal water in the world. Its temperature is affected by the combination of cold and hot spring waters coming from underground. The medicinal water breaks out from the spring cave on the surface at the rate of approx. 410 litres per second and with a temperature of 40°C. According to that delivery, the water in the lake changes every three and a half days and keeps uniformly clean.

Great Thermal lake!
Jul 2021 • Couples
We stayed at the Hotel 200m away. So it was comfortable to come, plus we had some disvount at the pric. You can purchase 3h ticket ( 3.200HUF) or 10h ticket. It is best to have "accessoar for swimming" or better to say floating in the lake since you should stay few hours. In side the building in the lake you have 2 sections with normal and worm thermal wzter with jats. So good! Highly recommended!

Vaccinated Brits not welcome!

Not open to Vaccinated Brits.

I’ve been hoping to visit for a while, but was robustly refused entry, despite my vaccination certificate. Sorry fellow Brits, we are not welcome!

Absolutely worth a visit if you’re in Heviz
Sep 2020
Very nice and cozy place, absolutely worth a try if you’re in Heviz. However don’t plan plan your trip to Heviz solely around this lake, because you’ll get bored. It’s good for a few hours but definitely not a whole-day-program. Recommended!

Hmmm. I know I am criticizing one of most famous Hungarian bath, but actually, at the end of the day this is a hot spring lake with guiding and grass. Superb for sick people with ie rheumatic problem , but I really not recommend as a family program

Amazing place!

Even though the average age of the visitors is about 80, everyone could benefit from visiting it at least once. The area is beautiful, the water is always warm (perfect for people who don't like colder water) and you can have a very relaxing time there.

Crowded, same sex changing rooms with long queues for cubicles
Jun 2020
The lake maybe interesting and one of a kind but the organisation of the changing rooms is in shambles. There are several changing rooms where male and female facilities are not separated and you have to queue up for a small changing cubicle and carry in and out all your stuff. Pretty horrible experience.

Big and deep lake
Feb 2020
The lake is very big, there are many exits from inside to reach the lake, you can choose the side you like more. You can swim inside and outside as well, from inside it is easy to swim out. Really deep, impossible to reach the bottom. Swimbelt is necessary for those you cannot swim.
Also important to mention, if buy 3 hours ticket and enter at 14:00 you still have 3 hours to be inside in spite of the lake closes at 17:00. They count the time you spend inside the building and not in the water.

Amazing!

Believe everyone to Heviz will enjoy the thermal lake. If you take public transportation, no need to ask direction, just follow the persons with life ring. The lake has different hour long tickets, as well as other service for guest. There are locker room, cafe, & restaurant in the park. There are inside & outside parts, at outside lake, there are several rest bars in the lake, one can take rest there. The temperature of water is warm & comfortable (over 30°C in September). The scenery around lake is very good. Please note if you are not a good swimmer, suggest to rent or purchase a life ring for the safety reason since most area is deep water.
