The original Seoul City hall became the Seoul Metropolitan Library and behind it stands the new city hall which is a very exciting and impressive modern building made of glass and steel and where the Seoul Metropolitan Government is based.

The new building was completed and opened in 2012 and is a stone's throw from several well known landmarks such as the Lotte Duty Free building, the Grevin Museum and the Plaza Hotel.

Seoul has two City Halls, one old and the other new. The Old City hall which was supposed to be built in 1900s has been now converted into a Library. The new one was open in in 2012 and houses most of the government offices along with other Multipurpose halls and cultural centers including Cafes. The new City hall is a multi storied building with glass façade impressing one and all. Visit to this place can be clubbed along with Deoksgung Palace.
This place is in a walkable distance from the City Hall Subway Station.

A new ultra-modern city hall has been built and opened in just the past 5-6 years, and is located behind the older original (and Japanese-designed) City Hall. The older City Hall has now been converted into a library.

The new City Hall is located behind, and slightly to the right of, the earlier building, and its sweeping facade appears to curve upwards and almost leaning over the much smaller and earlier building. This IS an impressive building, both from the outside, as well as its interiors, which include a gigantic main wall of glass right across the front of the building, and an internal greenery wall of plants that seems to soar ever so high up above you. In front of the two City Halls (the old and the new...) is the huge City Hall Plaza. This open space seems to be used for a variety of public events, outdoor exhibitions, food expos etc. There was a seafoods suppliers exhibition being held at one edge of the large plaza on the day we visited, which gave us an opportunity to sample a couple of seafood plates.

Well worth a visit, and do ENSURE that you don't just view the new City Hall from the outside, but DO go inside and take in the impressive architecture of this building.
You could probably spend upwards of an hour checking out the plaza and new City Hall, but if there is an interesting event being held on the plaza then you might find you can spend much longer there.

The City Hall, just a short walk from the City Hall metro station, is a beautiful building. However, I would like to mention that in autumn, please do not miss the stone wall adjacent to Exit 1 of the station. It is a scenic spot for portrait photography.
