Seoul City Hall actually comprises two buildings: the first, a modernist feat of architecure displaying glistening, glass curves resembling a large wave and the second, a Renaissance-style stone building dating to 1926. Out front, an oval lawn hosts events and festivals. Forty-eight lights encircle the lawn, which also contains a round outer-wall clock and a water fountain with 35 underwater lights. Head inside the older building--which now serves as a library--to check out its collection of 200,000 books. Plan trip to Seoul with our itinerary maker to find out where to go and what to do.

It definitely stands out architecturally as it aims to be the future of Korea. As the old building has a classic design, this new building is so looking so modern and beautiful. Worth a visit. more »
I had the pleasure of joining a free walking tour and got to go inside both the new and the old city halls. (the old one now is Seoul Metropolitan Library) The Vertical Garden in the current city hall is impressive! I don't find any withered leaf. The Vertical Garden is not only appealing to the eyes and also can filter the air, and adjust the indoor temperature and humidity.
Nice architecture! During winter, there is a large ice rink in front of the city hall which is a fun place to be.
