About

N Seoul Tower was built in 1969 as Korea's first integrated transmission tower beaming television and radio broadcasts across the capital. Since opening to the public in 1980, it has become a much-loved Seoul landmark. The tower's main attractions include multi-colored digital art projected onto the tower at night, a digital observatory, a roof terrace, the HanCook restaurant, the n.Grill restaurant, and the Haneul (Sky) Restroom. N Seoul Tower's mountain surroundings on Namsan (Mt.) have made it a popular place to unwind for locals and tourists alike.

An amazing multi-colored light show every night

※ Due to regulatory inspections, the nighttime laser light show has been temporarily suspended.
N Seoul Tower really comes alive at night with a breathtaking array of light shows from the "Reeds of Light" whose 70 lights create dynamic displays changing with every gust of wind, to the "Shower of Light" where light seems to cascade from a shower head for three minutes when a 100 won coin is inserted. Both shows can be enjoyed without an admission fee. More lights are created from the transmission tower, observation platform, main tower and the tower plaza, constantly changing their colors and patterns with the season and weather, making N Seoul Tower a true nighttime spectacle.
