  • This place ranks much higher on my lists of must see places in Seoul. The history of the wall is fascinating and to see how Koreans have incorporated it into modern life was very interesting...  more »
  • Visit the museum and you'll understand Seoul. A short walk from Dongdaemun Metro Station (on the green line), past the East Gate (Heunginjimun Gate) in the City Wall Park is the Seoul City Wall...  more »

  • Free museum and very good as in most museums in Seoul. Small but informative and interesting. Makes you understand the history of the city better. From here you can walk up the hill along the wall to get a good view of Seoul. The city wall of Seoul is not well publicized so the museum is usually empty despite being free. I must say they did a good job showcasing the history of the wall. Koreans should be proud of their fantastic museums.
  • There's a short cut to shave off 500m off the initial steep climb. Go towards the Seoul City Gate Museum. Visit this museum first. It serves as a great introduction before the ascent. You will appreciate the walls, the history and the hard labor that went into it's construction. There's a back exit from this museum which leads directly to the wall at the back. Upon exit, you will find that the walkway is very manageable as the steep climb had been bypassed. Continue up the slope and you will find a serene environment away from the busy street activities down below. There's a exercise area and a pavilion if you need a rest. Be aware there's no restroom. The restrooms at the museum are the only ones. Bring a bottle of water. Easy hike.
