About

Banpodaegyo Bridge is a two-tiered bridge over the Han River. Its lower level, called Jamsugyo (Submergence Bridge), is designed to be below water during the rainy season. In 2009, Seoul Metropolitan Government added the Moonlight Rainbow Fountain to the Banpodaegyo, creating the world's longest bridge fountain (as recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records) with 380 water jets and a dazzling array of multicolored lights.
The Moonlight Rainbow Fountain's water jets are dynamic and can move in time to music creating spectacular ever-changing displays. Add to that the hundreds of rainbow-colored lighting combinations when night falls, and it is easy to see why Banpodaegyo is a magnet for tourists year-round.

The Moonlight Rainbow Fountain operates daily from April to October, with each show lasting 15 - 20 minutes. In addition, the Banpo Hangang Park hosts the "Moonlight Square Cultural Weekend" event every Saturday from 7 - 8:30 p.m. from May to October, featuring a variety of musical styles including classical music with commentary, a cappella, jazz, brass bands and orchestras.

  • Disappointing
    The descriptions make it seem like a place you really want to go, but I was disappointed when I saw the 'show'. They play music and the fountain moves up and down a bit and does a wave pattern and...

  • Not so exciting visit
    Went there as it supposed to be a rainbow fountain festival only to find out that it only happens on Friday and Saturday nights when we reached the place. Without this feature, the visit was only so...
