Hongneung Arboretum

Nature Centre in Dongdaemun & Eastern Seoul

A hidden gem, the National Institute of Forest Science opens its idyllic grounds to the public on weekends. A forest pathway winds for a few kilometres between rare trees and herb gardens. A mound at the rear was once a royal tomb like Yeonghwiwon and Sunginwon nearby, but it was moved in 1919.
