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.

  • There is something in Korea and gather in the Plaza in front of City Hall,. And the OWL issue of time was filled with yellow flags. Now, in the President's impeachment decision, is a great demonstration. Guess what, so people there? Usually, if December decorated Christmas tree and skating rink is created. This year I'm? Usually on Sunday, ' do a lot or outdoor concerts from the provinces, Nicki minaj, throat singing contest or artists. In the circular lawn is fairly broad. Around, there are plenty of hotels and restaurants. I will every month in Korea, but interesting because what events are there? Always check the. Lawn in spring and autumn weather permitting, stay in bed, not offend. To travel on Saturday and Sunday, please come again.

  • great place to hang out with friends, picnic possible in front of the building, many events happen there, check website. 
  • Every time I go every time really various events in the square in front of the eyes. Summer water festivals, music concerts, fall is like a book fair. And libraries, Korea library experience (stairs, guys sitting there, reading). Or local Duster is building an innovative design, no sense of history because it's unpopular.

  • 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
