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.

  • What a view!
    The Seoul Tower is an absolute must, particularly at night! It gives you a 360 degree view of the city with its brilliant twinkling lights. The signs that indicate what cities lay in which direction...

  • Never visit N Seoul Tower on Holiday evenings
    I think I will never visit N Seoul Tower again, at least not on holiday evenings. Reason 1-- terrible waiting time spent 20 minutes: for the escalator up to the cable car ticket booth 80 minutes...

  • Get ready to walk up the hill!!
    Not suitable for elderly people that can’t walk far and up the hill. The parking space for vehicles are way down the hill. But it’s a beautiful place if it’s not raining and foggy.

  • Nice View, long wait
    Nice veiw over Seoul, but a very long wait for the elevator. Visit the skybar and enjoy the veiw. It must have been one of the most expensive touristattractions in Seoul. Still worth a visit.
