Inspirock Rating:
4.7/5 based on 35+ reviews on the web
Marking the border between two countries, Concrete Wall is most often seen through a telescope. Climb to the watchtower to see the wall and the structure of the border. Visit the museum, where two countries signed armistice agreement (the document lies under the glass and is well-preserved), or head to the blue huts where negotiations take place. You may get the feeling of standing in the intense war zone, but the site is said to be completely safe. On site you can buy souvenirs in the gift shop.

The tour guide, not I were checked in our case Funnily enough. You probably had the "OK" for me. The border fortifications, which you will have to face, are archaic simple and effective: moving steel plates, which transform the access road into a deep hole, large concrete roles that you can roll on the road... certainly also modern electronic, you get only in the form of the ubiquitous cameras to face. The tour includes a description of the location by an officer and includes the known ideological positions of course. The large hall in which the weapon standstill agreement was signed is interesting, there are a few historical relics. Finally, climb to the balcony of a modern visitor Pavilion and overlooks the blue border barracks on a South Korean counterpart on the other side. Here, the photograph is even desirable. To understand what being in southern and Northern heads on goes in, a visit here essential.
