Seoul City Hall, Seoul

(4/5 based on 300 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.

  • 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!
