The lighting festival at Garden of Morning Calm is the largest lighting festival of its kind in Korea. During the lighting festival, the garden is lit up with over 30,000 lights.
The garden is generally open from 9:00am to 8:00pm daily. During the lighting festival, the closing hours is extended to 11:00pm on Saturdays and 9:00pm on all other days.
Although the garden is open from morning, we do not recommend going before sundown. The flowers are not in bloom and the only reason to go to Garden of Morning Calm during the Winter is to see the lights.
The exact dates vary year to year. In general, the festival is from early December to late March.
