Namsan Tower (N Seoul Tower) Tours

Head to the top of Namsan Tower (N Seoul Tower) in hilly Namsan Park, the largest in Seoul, for some of the best panoramic views over the South Korean capital. The 777-foot (237-meter) tower offers three observation decks and half a dozen restaurants where you can soak in the views, day or night.
 
The Basics
As one of Seoul’s most enduring landmarks, Namsan Tower is featured on many sightseeing tours of the city, along with attractions like Gyeongbokgung Palace, the Blue House, Jogyesa Temple, and Namsangol Hanok Village. Access to the observation tower requires an admission ticket, though admission is free for diners at the n.GRILL restaurant, where advance reservations are recommended.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Wear comfortable walking shoes, especially if you plan to explore the surrounding park.
  • Book your observatory entrance ticket online to avoid lines at the ticket office.
  • Remember to pick up an audio guide in the observation area for commentary on attractions you can see through the windows.
  • Both Namsan Tower and the cable car are wheelchair accessible.
 
How to Get There
Cars are not allowed within Namsan Park, so to reach the tower you’ll have to walk up the hill or ride the cable car. The nearest subway station is in Myeongdong, a 10-minute walk from the cable car station. It’s also possible to ride the Namsan Sunhwan Shuttle Bus, which stops at several subway stations throughout Seoul.
 
When to Get There
Namsan Tower is open 365 days a year, with extended hours Saturday. Each restaurant has its own operating hours, so it’s a good idea to call ahead if you’re planning to eat. Though the views from the tower are excellent no matter when you visit, they’re particularly stunning at night when the city is illuminated.
 
Namsan Tower Love Locks
The tower has long been a popular date spot for Koreans, and you’ll notice the railings around the tower are covered in colorful padlocks. These locks are often decorated with names of couples who left them at the tower as a symbol of eternal love.
