Ginkgo Trees Path & Art Sculptures

On entering Yonsei University, the long straight rows of tall ginkgo trees will take your breath away.

Charming Gothic-style Buildings

One of the main highlights for visitors to this campus is the three Gothic-style buildings, namely Stimson Hall, Underwood Hall and Appenzeller Hall.

 

Standing side-by-side, the buildings, adorned with ivy vines, turned into gorgeous shades of red in autumn and a sight to behold.

Together with a beautiful garden in front of these buildings, this area has become the most popular place for taking pictures, across all seasons in Korea and a must-visit to Yonsei University.
