Haneul Park, Seoul

4.5
#13 of 45 in Parks in Seoul
Part of a larger site built to commemorate the 17th FIFA World Cup, the lofty Haneul Park affords panoramic views of the site and mountains beyond. The park was actually built on a 15-year-old landfill site, which held 92 million tons of garbage. Haneul Park was built on the highest mountain of trash, which has been utterly transformed into a verdant hill, covered in various trees and flowering shrubs and grasses. Check out the various viewing platforms as you take the walkway to the top of the hill, and look out for the five wind-powered generators that feed the park its energy.

  • Grass weeds are high so it looks like the spot to search people. Near the World Cup Stadium and walk for 30 minutes, Haneul Park is really compulsory visit. Moreover, when autumn arrived, really beautiful scenery!

  • My time here, I was down at the bus stop of world cup stadium. To go to this place, it is rather tiring and tired also because have to climb hundreds of steps. But once it gets above my tired, think thus paid off because we can see a beautiful view of the city of seoul of haneul park.

  • I went pretty much since the beginning point is a world cup stadium, then had to climb the umpteen-hundred stairs (the view is very nice too!) to get to the top. But after arriving at the top, all running last terbayarkan. And we met some nice locals too!

  • Lovely park that was created on a landfill. I went there on a national holiday together with relatives. This is a popular spot for families and tourists alike. It's also a good spot for taking pictures with the various types of flower fields that were planted here.
  • Haneul Park is the most popular of the five parks situated in World Cup Park. "Haneul" actually translates to sky since it is situated on the highest part of World Cup Park. Silver grass a.k.a. Eulalia grass is a must-visit place! Climb up a 291-step stairway or take a ride on the park's electric tram. It's right on top of Haneul Park, it offers breathtaking views of Seoul including the Han River ✨
  • Beautiful in autumn with eulalia... If going there with kids, best to get the tram ride at the bottom of the hill
  • Very pretty place for photo taking and nice view up here. However do note that there’s quite an amount of stairs to climb if you’re not going from the slope.
  • A beatiful place to go and take some pictures of the nature, especially in fall or winter. Take a rest and enjoy the surrouding nature.

Where to stay in Seoul

The Seoul metropolitan area has two districts especially appealing to backpackers--Jongno just northeast of the city, and Hongdae to the west. Both offer good shopping and dining, as well as easy transport links to the rest of the city. Mid-range options may prove difficult to find in peak season (July to August), unless you don't mind staying at a traditional hanok guesthouse, where loads of character make up for any lack of amenities. Finally, a range of top-end hotels with an impressive list of services and facilities lie scattered around the city.
