Deoksugung Tours

Situated along an old stone road and tucked between a handful of western-style buildings, Deoksugung is the only traditional palace in Seoul’s bustling neighborhood of Jung-gu. Visitors who enter the grounds must cross a picturesque bridge where the king’s carriage once traveled thousands of years ago. Tourists can explore the traditional palace buildings that dot the grounds, as well as venture into the ornate gardens and the National Museum of Art. Free guided tours are available for those interested in learning more about the history of Deoksugung, but visitors say the exquisite detail of the buildings’ interiors and vast grounds are still impressive without the back story.  The changing of the guards, which takes place daily, is one of the most popular attractions at Deoksugung. 

Practical Info

Deoksugung is located at 99 Sejong-daero in Jung-gu, Seoul’s busiest downtown district. It is open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 a.m. until 9 p.m. It is closed on Mondays.
