You can hike around the fortress wall and enjoy wonderful views on a clear day. There are many places for a picnic, or if you want to enjoy traditional food, you will find some very quaint eateries offering very authentic home- style Korean food.

You can hike around the fortress walls and enjoy wonderful views on a clear, sunny day. The hike around the walls takes around an hour and a half and afterwards you can enjoy traditional food in one of several restaurants.

It was a fortress to defend enemies from neighboring countries. Now it is a park. You can drive up to the fortress.
