Also known as the Incheon Airport Observatory, the Oseong Mountain Observatory deck is a must-go place where you can see the airport in its entirety. It is located at 51.5 meters above sea level in the middle of Oseong mountain, Yeongjongdo.
When you get up to the observatory, there is glass through which you can see airplanes taking off or landing every 5 minutes. In addition, you can even see New Airport city and Songdo International Business District, which are located far away!
The Oseong mountain Observatory deck was constructed in 2001 when Incheon Airport opened and it is now open for tourists. If you drive your car, it takes 10 minutes to get there from Incheon Airport’s passenger terminal. It takes about 5 minutes from the parking lot to the observation deck. If you use public transport, you can take bus #306 at gate 2B, 7A, or 13A on the third floor of Incheon Airport’s passenger terminal and get off at the Incheon Airport Observatory bus stop! It takes 25 minutes if you use public transport.
The observatory is open from 10:30 AM to 4 PM (open year-round). Make sure to double check since its hours are subject to change depending on the weather and due to COVID-19! (Contact: +82-32-751-2117)
