Cheonggyecheon Stream
There’s a quick and easy way to evade the hustle and bustle of downtown Seoul: get below street level to Cheonggyecheon. It's part of a massive urban renewal project that cleared an old, elevated highway to reveal the stream below it. To find the source of Cheonggyecheon, look for Claes Oldenburg’s sculpture “Spring Tower,” that resembles a giant unicorn horn. From here, it’s a serene 3.6-mile walk that meanders through art installations, graceful fountain features, and green rest areas. Visitors can duck out anytime at one of the 22 overhead bridges that cross the stream or visit the free Cheonggyecheon Museum near the end of the trail to learn more about its role in the city's history.
