Samcheonggak

A Traditional Korean Mountain Retreat in the Heart of Seoul

Samcheonggak is a unique event venue representative of Korean culture. Initially created to host the North-South Red Cross Conference in 1972, the complex is a historical venue symbolizing the unification of three poles: “North and South”, “Tradition and Modernity,” and “Korea and the World.” Today, Samcheonggak is a public cultural space offering a wide range of programs using the four seasons as its backdrop. Event planners will find no better place to discover Korean culture than at Samcheonggak’s serene hanok (traditional Korean house)-style buildings and classically elegant outdoor gardens that are ideal for holding luxurious and elaborate events. These, combined with the facility’s highly-professional service designed to maximize exclusivity and comfort, make Samcheonggak an event venue of the highest caliber. There is also an on-site Korean restaurant as well as a garden cafe that also offers traditional tea ceremonies suitable for business meetings and other small gatherings.

Add a taste of Korea to any international event in a setting guaranteed to lend it the ambience it deserves by choosing Samcheonggak, a one-of-a-kind event space.
