#3 of 62 in Parks in Seoul
Enjoy some fresh air at the mountaintop Namsan Park, one of the city's most popular areas for strolling, picnicking, and relaxing. Make your way up to the top of the 262 m (860 ft) peak via cable car to take in sweeping views over the capital's urban sprawl. Go for a leisurely wander around the network of walking paths crisscrossing the park and meandering through the area's wooded landscape. You'll find sport facilities for badminton, tennis, swimming, baseball, and more around the park, as well as a botanical garden, library, and cultural center. Put Namsan Park on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Seoul trip planning site .

  • Have a short fun to the top. We take cable car up and walk down. Hope to enjoy the autumn leave but sadly it not full bloom yet. Walking down can take 20 minute.  more »

  • We walked through the park on the way to the N Seoul Tower. The paths were nice and clean and it was a nice walk through the trees. It was quite steep. We started from the Public Library entrance and it took about 30 minutes to climb up. There were quite a few rest spots and paths that seemed to lead to other areas of the park. Really nice walk up although it was a tad tiring.
  • Great place to go use cable car going up. Then explore the place going down.
  • And smokers ?! In Seoul everywhere arround you get in,no smoking areas.all day inside and no smoking areas.thats really bad !!!
  • This a good point of view from Seoul. I think it's better at night. If you want a romantic place, go here ^^ It's just... magic
  • Beautiful hike with city views of the city and mountains beyond. There are also work out stations with hula hoops and other light weight machines along the course.
