This wide, elevated walkway -- about 56-feet-high -- runs for 1 kilometer between Malli-dong and Namdaemun Market. The pedestrian green space opened in 2017, replacing a highway overpass that originated in 1970. I've strolled along the two similar walkways that exist worldwide, the High Line...More

Great innovation and urban revitalisation. Use it to walk quickly from Seoul Station to Namdaemun. Along the way, lots for the eye to see, including those cute tortoises that tricked me into thinking they were statues. Really quirky and one of those reasons, Seoul just...More

Not too long of a walk but very enjoyable! I love the setup especially the variety of trees and plants. Pack an umbrella in case it rains.

Walked along seoullo from seoul station to Namdaemun market. Pleasant walk on seoullo looking at buildings and there’s even coffee shop along seoullo. Nice place to take a walk and enjoy seoul. Elevators are available for strollers and wheelchair

We decided to visit this park around sunset: various plantings and street pianos are scattered about, plus some tiny coffee shops and some stores. It’s about .5-6 mile ?, inspired by what NYC did in the Highline Park, which we happened to see 4 months...More

Seoullo 7017 was quite nice once you get up. There's an elevator or you can wind your way up the stairs and get some exercise. There's not much to see except the rail and buildings but it's a nice way to cross the road and...More

It’s a knock off attempt at the high line, except there is no design philosophy whatsoever. No effort made to make the motifs work with each other. Just ugly cement pots with flowers on a bridge

It was around 1970 when this elevated road was constructed to connect two sides around Seoul Station. However due to safety issues, the road was closed. After this, rather than tearing down the existing structure, the road was developed into Seoullo 7017, an elevated garden...More

Questions & Answers
Ask a question
Is the only elevator giving access to Seoul Station the one identified as Seoul Plaza near the original Seoul Station after which you would need to walk across the Seoul Plaza (in our case dragging our two large heavy suitcases) and then getting up the escalator at the front of he new Seoul Station, or is there an elevator which would enable us to enter the new Seoul Station directly from Seoullo 2017 where we could then take the elevator (which we have found already there) which would enable us to get to the Air Terminal on Level B2 to check in for our Asiana flight and check our bags. Our Hotel (Manu) does have a direct entry to Seoullo 7017 so if there were an easy access to the new Seoul Station it would really help! Nobody seems to understand the question at the Travel Help Desk in the new Seoul Station or at our Hotel due to language issues it seems.
