New Spots in Seoul


“From Rusty Railways to Forest Path!”

Gyeongchun Line (Railroad) Forest

Gyeongchun Line (Railroad) Forest

6.3km of disused Gyeongchun Line railway has turned into parks for residents. Walk along the railways where trains once traveled to Chuncheon to bring back fond memories or enjoy a romantic walk.

The Gyeongchun Line railway disused since December 2010 has been transformed into a forest park. The Gyeongchun Line was the first railway built using Korean capital during the Japanese colonial era and is preserved in its entirety. The railway is divided into three sections to regenerate the industrial legacy and develop a cultural walk path as a green welfare space. Visitors can walk or bike along the old railway that trains to Chuncheon traveled on to reminisce over past memories or enjoy a romantic walk.
