City Hall Station is a station on Seoul Subway lines 1 (Blue Line) and 2 (Green Line). 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, including those of the works of van Gogh, Monet, and René Magritte. The head offices of three daily newspapers, The Chosun Ilbo, The Dong-a Ilbo and Kyunghyang Shinmun, are near the city hall. Seoul Plaza Hotel is located across from the city hall.
