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.
Duration: 2-3 hours

    Relax
    To get to the lake, you need to purchase a subscription and get an electronic bracelet to record the time spent in the bath. It is impossible to swim while in the water. A lifebuoy is required, the body must be held vertically and moved with your feet, as if you were walking on water. Inside there is a recreation area with a swimming pool, but it seemed dirty to me there and the specific smell is stronger. Still, it is better to be in an open warm pond.

    Just relax
    Our first such thermal experience. A bit expensive but very good - need to repeat soon. We took the 3 hour tickets. The bar/restaurant too expensive and average. The lady/security at the entrance did not understand/speak English, also not at the bar, would expect they did.

    Thing to try
    Nice experience, bathing in the lake at 0°C. There were a lot of people, not crowded, and enough deck chairs for relaxation after swimming. Flip flops are recommended, because floor is quite rough even if it doesn't seems so. Caution: silver jewellery will change color after contact with water. It will from silver to gold and to copper.

Having visited a few times, the lake remains as it always was however it it the Wellness Spa that I draw attention to. You must pay a surcharge to access the saunas, steam room and hot tubs. Well they took our money without saying the sauna was not working, the steam room was not up to temperature nor was the hot tub. It is a facility in decline.

I have given that a 5 star review as its such a unique experience. We visited in March. The outdoor temp of the water isn't super hot but its fine for a swim. The indoor water is hot so most people were in there. My tip is bring your own food as the food is terrible. And also hire a pool noodle! Everyone uses one. It's 38 mtrs deep at some points so safer to have a noodle. The wellness area is separate and you have to pay extra for it. It's nothing fancy and you do get a lot of men wandering about naked which if your like me is something you don't want to be subjected to! So maybe give it a miss. There are 2 pools and saunas of varying temperatures but it isn't very well maintained.

terrible bar service. overall the drinks and food offer is poor only in one restaurant and in the only bar they have a very limited drink offer. the staff does not observe the opening hours and is unable to serve mixed drinks in the afternoon. the staff is very unhelpful. We recommend bringing your own food and drink.

It is an amazing lake, very special, our favourite in Hungary, BUT the staff is unfriendly, the bar and the restaurant are way overpriced (charging now service fee without table service) and I had to ask for toilet papers on a number of occasions thru the years.
DO come and visit because the thermal lake is second to none and try to ignore the circumstances that may be off-putting.
It is a place to visit all around the year.

Dangerous entrance. Very slippery stairs. Security people should be more aware. I witnessed several people slip and fall, especially elderly people. It is not all right. Last year I made notice at the lifeguard to check the mat more often, this year, the same story. The director and security employees are obviously careless about the visitors' security. It is a pity. The lake and the healing water is great. I come here every 6th months.
