Not suitable for elderly people that can’t walk far and up the hill. The parking space for vehicles are way down the hill. But it’s a beautiful place if it’s not raining and foggy.

Nice veiw over Seoul, but a very long wait for the elevator. Visit the skybar and enjoy the veiw. It must have been one of the most expensive touristattractions in Seoul. Still worth a visit.
