#63 of 706 in Things to do in Seoul
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. Plan trip to Seoul with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

  • The new building of the City Hall is a beautiful and futuristic building with bold shapes. Built in 2012 replaced the original degli anni ' 20. Despite the very modern architecture and materials, the building fits throughout the area. Interesting.

  • The Best city hall 😂😂 I visited during fall season, so many flowers decorated here. Best!!!
  • This is a really cool city hall! It's actually more of an art gallery. There is even a small excavation site inside. It seems like there are constantly events going on inside and outside. When I went, there was a concert in the field next to the city hall which was a lot of fun. This is probably the most interesting city hall that I've been to.
  • Central spot that I can start my city tour. There is always event at front of this building. The architecture looks amazing.
  • It's a neat thing to look at. But the top has foggy views due to the window, and you have to go to the old city hall (Seoul library) to step outside for outside views.
  • Very beautiful city hall, free entrance to it, you can climb to the top floor of the elevator and walk along it, many green plants, very eco-friendly, unusual and beautiful
