Lotte World’s Seoul Sky Co., Ltd. won the 2017 Global Power Brand Award(GPBA) and the Award of “Yoo Sung-yeop, the Chairman of the Education, Culture, Sports and Tourism Committee at the National Assembly”.

Seoul Sky is the observatory facility located on the top floor of 123-story, 555m-high Lotte World Tower. To enjoy the observatory facilities, take the double deck elevator sky shuttle from the entry level. A double deck elevator is a type in which two elevators are operated vertically. The Sky Shuttle that operating at a speed of 600m at a section of 496m(from the second basement to the 121st floors), has a name on the Guinness World Record for the following two items: the longest traffic distance and the fastest double deck elevator.

If you go up to the 500-meter-high viewing floor, you can enjoy a 360-degree view of Seoul, the capital of Korea, at a glance. On sunny days, the visibility reaches up to 40 km, allowing visitors to see Songdo and the West Sea of ​​Incheon.

The Skydeck, located on the 118th floor (478m above the ground), offers a different view. It is designed to walk on clear glass floors and feels like walking on the sky. It was listed on Guinness World Records as the highest glass floor observatory. At Sky Terrace on the 120th floor, you can enjoy a different pleasure by enjoying the scenery of the outdoors rather than seeing the panorama through the window.

If you feel hungry, you can go to the 123rd floor, the top of the observatory: “123 lounge”, the premium lounge is available. The 123 lounge operates as a café during the afternoon offering teas and desserts, and transforms into a lounge offering wine and beer in the evening when the sun sets over the sky. It can also be used for corporate events and wedding ceremonies.

Seoul Sky will keep the number of visitors at an appropriate level in order to maintain a safe and pleasant viewing environment. In addition, an airport-level security check is underway to enhance security. Security guards and CCTVs are installed throughout the observatory to ensure safe outings.

An official of Lotte World Seoul Sky said, “You can enjoy various exhibitions, performances and experiences, not just looking at the surrounding scenery like other conventional observatories. We will grow into a place that will let tourists visiting Korea come to see the most beautiful Seoul.” For further information, visit Lotte World Seoul Sky website (
