Civil, Cultural and Political Heart of Modern Seoul

Seoul City Hall

서울 시청

Seoul City Hall is an architectural wonder. Towering over the original colonial-era City Hall building, which was constructed by the Japanese in 1925, the new City Hall looks like a giant wave of glass ready to swallow its predecessor. After the construction of the new City Hall was completed in 2012, the original building was repurposed into the Seoul Metropolitan Library, stocking over 200,000 books, while the new City Hall became the headquarters of the Seoul Metropolitan Government and a cultural space for its citizens. Seoul City Hall boasts an eco-friendly design, including the world's largest vertical garden, spanning some seven floors. Visitors are free to explore the building on their own during opening hours.
