Namsan Seoul Tower

The N Seoul Tower which is 236.7 m tall is located at the top of Namsan Mountain. Very few visitors of the
N Seoul Tower know why the tower existed. It was actually built as Korea’s first integrated transmission
tower beaming television and radio broadcast in 1969. However, it was eventually made public on 1980
and has become a major tourist attraction.

The tower not only offers a very beautiful spot to see a panoramic view of the city but it has also so many
activities to offer - these includes the Bear Museum, Love Locks, and Love tiles. It also has a variety of
restaurants and café located at the upper floors of the tower. For those who want to be closer to nature
- the Namsan Park, right below, is open for strolling as well.

At night, multi-colored digital art is projected at the walls of the N Seoul Tower. During special occasions
or holidays, they sometimes have a lightshow on the walls of the tower and fireworks display as well.

It is a sure way to please your romantic partner or your family if you bring them here.
