One of Seoul’s most iconic landmarks, N Seoul Tower is located on Namsan Mountain and provides stunning views of the capital.

The top of the tower sits at 480m above sea level — the tower’s height is 236.7m while sitting atop the 243m mountain.

Built in 1969 to send radio and tv signals, it opened in 1980 to the public becoming one of the cultural centers of the city.

It houses a variety of cultural attractions, including restaurants, a wishing pond, observatories, museums and the “love padlocks”, where young couples have declared their love for each other.
