Seoul City Hall, Seoul
(4/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Seoul City Hall actually comprises two buildings: the first, a modernist feat of architecure displaying glistening, glass curves resembling a large wave and the second, a Renaissance-style stone building dating to 1926. Out front, an oval lawn hosts events and festivals. Forty-eight lights encircle the lawn, which also contains a round outer-wall clock and a water fountain with 35 underwater lights. Head inside the older building--which now serves as a library--to check out its collection of 200,000 books.

  • Large around the building because it was so small. Building was a style reminiscent of Japan rule age. This is like points, a couple of days could not quite close, and massive demonstrations during the time passed ago.

  • You could just as well look at a photo, nothing to do there, but look at the odd shaped building and hear the story of why it is that way. But, again, it's sort of obligatory, before you are liberated...  more »
  • The current Park won-soon, sometimes being different in each market during his tenure of the color or the event open. But I have more fun than you think. Just events. Watch this if you're going to take you to visit to see once shines. You can see a lot of civil servants.

  • Looks very modern and somewhat futuristic. Good for a short stop-by
  • The place should be a good addition to someone's downtown walking itinerary. Take a quick stop to admire this modern, tidy, and aesthetically pleasing structure. 15 minutes is probably enough as there's not much to do inside the building.
  • Very nice place. Its is almost centre to the Seoul. You can find many good place near by to spend great time.
  • This is absolutely GREAT PLACE! I give 5 stars! Greetings from Germany!
  • Loved is in the air
