Tradition and modernity, East and West stand side by side at Seoul's Deoksugung Palace. Discover the history and architecture of the monument on this night tour.
Deoksugung Palace Night Tour
Having met up at 5 pm at the Daehanmun Gate of the Deoksugung Palace, our guided tour will begin. From this entrance point to the complex, we'll head to the Jeongdong Observatory, where we'll climb to the 13th floor to enjoy spectacular views over the Deoksugung Palace and its nightly illuminations.
We'll then enter the palace grounds and embark on a tour around its different traditional buildings as we learn all about its legendary history. The guide will reveal curious facts about the former royal residence as we admire the Throne Room and even enter the King's Bedchamber!
The Western-style Seogjojeon is sure to catch your attention during the guided tour of the palace. Doesn't it remind you of a Greek temple? Its neoclassical architecture provides an intriguing contrast to the traditional Korean structures throughout the rest of the complex.
Our night tour of the Deoksugung Palace will come to an end at 7 pm near the palace walls, where you can continue to explore at your own pace.
