N Seoul Tower, widely known as Namsan Seoul Tower, is a major landmark and tourist attraction in Seoul. It is situated on top of Namsan Mountain, at the height of 236.7 metres.

This tower is Korea’s first broadcast tower, transmitting radio and TV signals since 1972. It was opened to the public in 1980, allowing visitors to access the tower’s observation deck and other features.

The landmark was given its new name, N Seoul Tower, to reflect the new modernized look of it. After undergoing renovation, the tower now boasts a digital lighting system that can be redesigned to show lighting art for various events, holidays, and special occasions.

The N Seoul Tower is open the whole year and is accessible by cable car, bus, or private vehicle. The Seoul City Tour Bus also stops at the tower.

No words can describe the breathtaking view of Seoul from the top of the tower. At this Seoul’s highest viewing point, we can enjoy a panoramic view of the city without any obstruction.

Start your thrilling experience from Namsan Orumi, a free outdoor elevator that takes you to the cable car station.

Spend some time at the romantic Roof Terrace and swear your undying love through “love locks” at the garden. It’s just like a scene from a Korean drama!
