City Hall Station is a station on Seoul Subway lines 1 and 2. As its name suggests, Seoul City Hall is located right next to the station. Deoksugung, a historic palace of the Joseon dynasty, is on the other side of the boulevard named Taepyeongno.


Seoul Museum of Art is also nearby. The museum has hosted many special exhibitions showing works of van Gogh, Monet, René Magritte and so on.[2] There are head offices of 3 daily-newspapers, Chosun Ilbo, Donga Ilbo and Kyunghyang Shinmun, near the city hall. Additionally, Seoul Plaza Hotel is located across city hall.
