Wonderful farm experience 70 kilometers south of Seoul. Kids will enjoy animal feeding, horse riding and other nature-friendly activities
Inspired by the recent article in Korea Times, we decided to visit Anseong Farmland for its relative proximity from Seoul downtown. While approaching the farm, we were truly amazed by the nice hilly landscape where the farm is located. But our biggest surprise was upon reaching the parking lot, when we discovered colorful half-timbered houses copying countryside European villages as well American old barns. Were we still in South Korea or transported for a few hours back to Grand Ma’s times?
The farmland is a beautiful and incredibly clean area settled in a very natural environment. The entire park is really huge with many different options of tours or walks. As a result even during week-ends peak times, you shouldn’t feel the area to be overly crowded.
Anseong Farmland is divided into 5 different parts:
- Moomoo Ville – where you can spend hours and hours watching, touching and feeding all the farm animals. Most animals are moving freely in the area and the kids just love to run after the little goats and sheep while feeding them.
- Miru Hill – is a vast grassland where you can just walk and enjoy the beauty of the landscape while horses and sheep might come at your encounter anytime.
- Deutsche Ville – is the Landmark of Farmland with its typical german style half-timbered architecture. A couple of restaurants are available there including a semi-authentic “Gasthof” serving brewed draught beer to quench your thirst as well as kids menu options.
- Horse Ville – is the place to let your little ones ride a real full-size horse. Don’t forget also to buy some carrots at the information desk to feed the horses in the stables.
- Food Ville – is the area where you can find all kinds of food and refreshments. There is also a shop selling farms and organic products and a nice fountain where the kids can jump in during the hot summer days.
