Must see this place. You get a great view of the city of Seoul. It's beautiful in the spring as the trees and flowers add a touch of colors to the surrounding and cooler temperature too.

If you are feeling energetic you can walk up to the Tower, if not there's a cable car. The Tower itself is just an excuse to part you from your money with lots of shopping and eating opportunities. The view is probably best at sunset...More

To get to this place you either take a cable car or climb all the way up 1.5 kilometers. This is a tower that can overlook the whole of Seoul. But to access the top you would need an entry fee of about 10,000 won.

We went in the evening. The observation deck was quite small. Views were quite nice. Public transport can get quite crowded. Toilets have a great view though! :)

Situated in the center of Seoul, Namsan is Seoul’s
most well-known hill for having the iconic N Seoul
Tower perched on top of it. It’s not just the
picturesque views from Namsan Park that make it a top
draw, but N Seoul Tower’s status as a site for lovers
from around the world who come on a daily basis to
place a lock on the tower’s fence, professing their

When is the best time to go to Namsan Tower? I heard it can get really crowded and I don't like long wait lines. We will be leaving in a week so I would appreciate a quick response. Thanks!

Try to avoid weekends. If you go on weekdays I don't think there'll be long queues unless it's during school holidays.
when was this attraction built?

Hi, anyone know if the cable car stops exactly at the N Seoul Tower? Do we still have to climb a lot of stairs or walk a distance to reach the tower from the cable car?
