The Basics

Since its completion in 2012, Seoul City Hall has become one of the city’s most prominent architectural landmarks. Many city sightseeing tours of the Korean capital include a stop at the building, and travelers who wish to visit independently can pick up a self-guided tour brochure inside the building. Evening tours of the city often include city hall for a chance to see it (and the plaza) illuminated at night.

Great time at alternative tour
We had a great day on the alternative tour as the DMZ was closed due to swine fever. The tour company was very responsive over email and very helpful in the lead up to the tour. Hotel pick up is very convenient and our guide was knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. Thanks Jennie and Han for the great experience! Highly recommend.
