Located at the heart of Seoul and a proud architectural monument, Seoul City Hall is a historical and architectural marvel. The building was first constructed in 1925 as a city hall until a new, modern structure was added in 2008. The historic building now houses the Seoul Metropolitan Library, while the new building is home to the city government.

The newly constructed city hall is now an eco-friendly, contemporary building. Be wowed by one of the world’s largest vertical gardens – aptly named the Green Wall – as well as Metaseosa Seobeol, a symbolic art piece representing South Korea’s history and journey as a nation.

It will then take you to the eighth floor, where you can enjoy a serene afternoon at the Sky Plaza Gallery, host various art exhibitions.
