4.4
#3 of 63 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.

  • During October - Autumn I climbed to the top. Lot of stairs but great views during the way up. Do bring some water. The view on the top is almost 360 and you get a much better impression of the city.....  more »

  • Lovely walk up to the tower but not easy to find the route - we had to ask twice for directions ( despite G Maps) and checking for signs. There is a cable car to the tower and several buses but enjoy the forests on the mountains while walking. It must be spectacular in autumn colours
  • Hiked up from Itaewon, past the Grand Hyatt and into the park that covers the mountain. The views of the city are there, but much more to the point are the trails - paved, dirt or just tracks in the woods. Lots of flowers on the main paths. Places to stretch or rest or do other exercises. It is highly recommended and you feel much better for having walked there.
