See & Do Attractions


Namsan Seoul Tower was built in 1969 as Korea's first integrated transmission tower beaming television and radio broadcasts across the capital. Since opening to the public in 1980, it has become a much-loved Seoul landmark. The tower's main attractions include multi-colored digital art projected onto the tower at night, a digital observatory, a roof terrace, the HanCook restaurant, the n.Grill restaurant, and the Haneul (Sky) Restroom. Namsan Seoul Tower's mountain surroundings on Namsan Mountain have made it a popular place to unwind for locals and tourists alike.

Seoul has a number of viewing platforms where visitors can enjoy the nighttime cityscape or gaze out onto the Hangang (River) but the tower's Digital Observatory is unique, offering an astonishing 360 degree panorama over the city, and 32 LCD screens recounting the 600-year history of Seoul. That is why the observatory is so popular and such a source of pride.

Situated on top of the N Plaza, the Roof Terrace is a spacious wooden viewing deck whose exotic atmosphere makes it very popular with lovers. A recent attraction for courting couples is "Locks of Love," thousands of padlocks attached to the fence by romantic Seoulites symbolizing their undying affection.

  • Too expensive and too many reflections
    To be honest, I found this tower to be way too touristy. We went there in the evening to enjoy the lights of Seoul, but we were kind of disappointed. You have to wait in line for quite a while to...

    We tried to go at night but much too crowded. By day, it was fantastic. There is so much to do including the trip to the top. There were performers and restaurants and shops. It was the best day with...

  • Long lines
    We were staying just a short walk from the tower cable car, so we thought we'd go one afternoon. We got there around 16:30 and I was glad we did. The ride in the cable car is reasonably priced...

  • Be prepared to queue!
    Went on a sunday night - the queue for the cable car was huge! We waited about 40 minutes. The view from the top is amazing though - we were fortunate with the weather too.

  • Beautiful view
    I love Seoul, Korea🇰🇷. N Tower gives a breath taking view of Seoul. It has the "locks" bridge, souvenir shops, cafes, Hello Kitty shop, cable car ride. Can't wait to see this place again.
