Explore Deoksugung Palace


Added by Levi Basist

A rare opportunity to view an ancient palace (and truly unique by starlight). The convenient downtown location is juxtaposed by the surrounding modern architecture of Seoul.

There are many beautiful and ancient temples in Seoul, but what makes Deoksugung Palace (덕수궁) special is that it can be accessed by the general public during the day OR at night until 9pm.

It is conveniently located in central Seoul right outside of the City Hall metro station on the dark blue line.  A great resource for travelers with a cell phone is to call the free tourist information hotline 24/7 by dialing 1330 if you have any questions.

Each season and time of day offers unique sites.  During spring, the cherry blossoms are exploding into bloom.  During summer, the palace gardens are lush and green.  And during fall, the trees transform into an incredible medley of colors.
