City walls make here's scenery perfect. Especially for sun set in a open day you can see the perfect combination of Seoul's city-nature combined face!

I went there in winter. I think it's a bit cold but if you go to top of the park between park and Ihwa mural you will see the beatiful city views. And you will see the cute village called Ihwamurall.

The art murals are so-so and many are abit dated. However, it is still a place worth visiting as you get to see some of the cultural arts and the great views @ the submit. There are shops renting uniform cosplay and many local students renting them for photo shoots.

Is a long walk with a great view of the city. Close to the Mural Village. Lots of restaurants/coffee shops around and some art galleries close as well

We happened to find Naksan Park while walking around the mural village. It was peaceful and quiet so we were able to stroll around the park and enjoy the view. There's not much to do unless you want to hike up and go further. I wouldn't recommend going on a chilly day as it gets really cold towards end of... More

Rather than a hiking feel, it has more of an incline long walk kinda feel. Weather was chilly when I had my walk from Dondaemun all the way up to Naksan Park. Beautiful scenery. One can slowly take their time to roam around the area and enjoy the landscape.

We signed up for the Seoul Fortress Wall Footpath - Naksan Course guided tour offered by the Korean Tourism Organisation. I booked the tour online about 2-3 weeks before the trip. It was a very enjoyable tour... More

If you're looking for a moderate hike along a part of the old wall of the city, then I highly recommend this. The views are pretty amazing. You can see the mountains, skyline, including the N Seoul Tower. We didn't hike the entire section. If you're taking the metro here, get off at the Dongdaemun station and take exit 10.... More

In the attempt to trace the old city wall, part of it is up in Naksan. Take metro to Hyehwa station, there is some walk from the station, find the Lock Museum, there is a street nearby leading you uphill, quite steep I must say, but the view up on the mountain is rewarding.
