Changdeokgung Palace

An imperial city dating back to the fourteenth century, Seoul is the site of many historic and architectural treasures that offer a glimpse into South Korea’s epic history. As one of the Five Grand Palaces of South Korea, Changdeokgung Palace is an extravagant example of Joseon Dynasty architecture. The importance of this palace derives not only from its romantic landscaping and skilful artistry, but from its standing as one of the last remaining symbols of imperial Korea that partially survived Japanese occupation. Restored to beautiful condition today, the palace beckons visitors with impeccable gardens, halls, and pavilions.

  • Step into Changdeokgung Palace’s breathtaking Secret Gardens, made all the more vibrant during autumn; famous for glassy ponds, peaceful nooks tucked away in foliage, a Chinese juniper tree over 750 years old, and whimsical stone bridges.
  • Imagine yourself in the Seoul of the Joseon Dynasty, venturing under the massive colonnade pavilions of seventeenth century Donhwamun Gate and the inner gate.
  • Discover Changdeokgung Palace’s historic residence of the Nakseongdae Complex, the residential hall of Huijeongdang, the library and pharmacy of Gwolnaegaksa, and the main palace hall of Injeongjeon in Seoul.

Changdeokgung Palace is located between Seoul’s districts of Jongno-gu and Seongbuk-gu on the northern bank of the Han River. To the south, you can find the Jongmyo Shrine. Most subway lines pass close to the south entrance to the palace grounds, which is where you will find most of the buildings. The orange subway line comes from the north-western Ilsandong-gu suburb or south-eastern Garak-dong district, and stops at Anguk Station one block down. Changdeokgung Palace is within walking distance of the Hansung University campus. Alternatively, you could hire a taxi from anywhere in the city.
