Seoul: N Tower

On our last day we also visited the N Tower Seoul also know as Namsan Tower or Seoul Tower.

It is located on Namsam Mountain in downtown Seoul and the easiest way to get there is via a cable car.

The Tower was built in 1969 as a Television Communications Tower and then opened to the public in 1980. The tower is 236.7m high and the total height above sea level is 479.7m. The views are pretty amazing, from up there you get a feeling for how big the city actually is!

After we enjoyed the view, we staid up on the tower and enjoyed a coffee break.

There is a nice cafe on the second floor, and it was not too crowded when we got there on a Saturday afternoon.

They also sold delicious looking cakes, but we were still pretty full from brunch, so we gave them a miss.

Opening Hours:
Daily 10:00 – 23:00
Fri & Sat until midnight

How to get to the cable star station at the bottom of N Tower Seoul:
Myeongdong Station (line 4) exit 3 to Pacific Hotel and it is a 10 minute walk to the Namsan cable car
