Bugaksan Seoul Fortress, Seoul

(65 reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
An oasis of nature surrounded by storied old walls, Bugaksan Seoul Fortress represents the perfect spot to escape from the bustling city. Scenic views of the city from different points make climbing the stone stairs worthwhile, while the fresh air from nearby mountains adds a natural touch to the experience. Make sure you bring your passport, as the military officers guarding the fort require some sort of ID for you to enter. This is a measure to prevent violent incidents, which have occurred at the site in the past. Add Bugaksan Seoul Fortress and other attractions to your Seoul trip itinerary using our Seoul family vacation planner.
