Jangchungdan Park and Namsan circular.
Subway line 3, Dongguk University Station
The amble begins at Jangchung-dan Park, which is right next to Dongguk University (Korea’s oldest and largest Buddhist university, an fascinating place to visit in itself) and easy to get to from the Dongguk University Metro Station (Dongdae-ipgu in Korean, on Orange Line #3). This small urban park contains several appealing historical monuments including the Jangchoongdan Monument and the striking and architecturally-advanced Supyo Bridge. The route proceeds past an bona fide old section of the Namsan Fortress Wall, past Korea’s prominent National Theatre and then on up the mountain through a dense area of forest. In close proximity to the summit you can visit the very old Fire-signal Station and the modern-day Seoul Tower, the most visible emblem of Seoul. Descending to the north-east, your final stop will be the Namsan-gol Hanok Village, a delightful group of authentic Joseon Dynasty houses and pavilions arranged around a well-landscaped park. You can take a break and refreshment before returning back into the city through its front gate. Then head for Chungmuro/Myeong-dong/Namdaemun Gate and Market.
