N Seoul Tower offers panoramic views of South Korea’s capital city and beyond, making it well-regarded as an iconic landmark in Seoul. With its colourful light shows, myriad attractions and a fine-dining restaurant with a stunning view across the city, this attraction is best enjoyed once the sun has set.
Constructed in 1969, it was Korea's first integrated transmission tower, broadcasting local and international TV and radio channels within the capital city before it was opened to the public in 1980. Easily accessible via Namsan cable car, shuttle bus, or the Seoul City Tour bus, N Seoul Tower is set atop Namsan Mountain in central Seoul and stands at an impressive 236 metres. The tower’s verdant Namsan Park also makes for a nice place to unwind for locals and tourists alike.
Aside from a spacious observation deck that overlooks the entire city, the tower also houses a number of interesting attractions, such as an outdoor terrace, fine-dining French and Korean restaurants, an observatory café, and a Teddy Bear Museum.
For a unique night spectacle, make sure you visit N Seoul Tower between 19:00 and 24:00, where colourful lights are projected from the transmission tower, observation platform, main tower, and tower plaza. The dynamic light shows feature a myriad of colours and patterns that change according to season and weather.
If you’re looking to splurge on a romantic dinner with a loved one, the highest point of N Seoul Tower houses N Grill, a fine-dining rotating restaurant. The ambience here is very exclusive and intimate, where you can enjoy a full course dinner with the best view of Seoul.
Open daily from 10:00 until 24:00, entrance fees to the N Seoul Tower are priced at 9,000 won for adults and 7, 000 won for children and senior citizens. While travelling to Namsan Mountain via shuttle bus is free of charge, return tickets for the Namsan cable car are 8,500 won for adults and 5,500 won for children.
