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.

  • Light show
    Nice parc, perfect for strolls. At night, the bridge has a light show. It just misses music but it’s a nice show. It’s best to see it when it is really dark.

  • Light show
    The light show was quite average and certainly not worth the 30 minute bus journey we took to get there. It was not really a ‘show’ but just coloured lights on the side of the bridge. Definitely...

  • not that spectacular
    I went there with high expectations and was a bit disappointed. It wasn't as colorful as i imagined, it was just a really long water fountain. The park near it was nice to hang out at night though...
