The N Seoul Tower or the Namsan Tower is one of the main and most popular tourist attractions in Seoul. Do you want to visit the highest point of the city and admire its fascinating panorama from a bird’s eye view? Then move forward to the top of Namsan Mountain where the famous tower rises like a lighthouse.

The construction started in 1969. It was the first radio wave tower in South Korea. Started broadcasting in 1971, it continues to transmit signals from the leading television channels of the country: SBS, MBC and KBS.

The observation deck and other tourist facilities of the tower were made in 1975, and the first guests could visit it in five years. By the beginning of this century, more than 20 million people passed through it. The interest in this attraction does not fade away, and the number of visitors continues to grow. The statistics confirm that for the last few years the tower annually hosted about 8,4 million people.

In 2005, the name changed to the N Seoul Tower. N means not only Namsan. It has another, less obvious and deeper meanings – novelty and naturalness. So the tower became a symbol of the powerful bond of modern technologies and beautiful nature.

After reaching the tower, all tourists aspire to get inside as soon as possible and look at the city from a breathtaking height. The main observation deck allows enjoying the panoramic landscape and learn about attractions seen afar. One floor above, there is a digital observatory that will interest even children and teenagers.

The lobby of the tower houses a cultural centre and several exhibition spaces. Here, visitors can take part in traditional Korean events celebrating the Joseon dynasty. Do you want to take a unique experience with you? Then take part in a theatrical traditional wedding with folk costumes and professional memory photoshoot.

Address: 105 Namsangongwon-gil
