Since their inception in 2010, the tours have grown so popular that tickets have sold out immediately every year.

Tickets are available from March 25 at 2 p.m.

The maximum number of visitors a day is 2,000 — 1,700 with reservations and 300 with onsite ticketing.

Tickets are available from March 25 at 2 p.m. through the e-commerce platform 11 Street (https://ticket.11st.co.kr). Onsite ticketing is offered only to those ages 65 or over and foreign nationals at the ticket office in front of Gwanghwamun Gate.
