Hop on the DMZ Peace Train for a Unique Experience

The Demilitarized Zone (DMZ) in Korea marks the only divided country in the world, and it can be experienced through the DMZ Peace Train offered by KORAIL. There are two train routes running daily – Gyeongui Line, departing from Yongsan Station to Dorasan Station and Gyeongwon Line, departing from Seoul Station to Baengmagoji Station.

The DMZ Peace Train consists of three cabins, each designed with a different theme: peace, love and harmony. The first cabin has a rusty steam locomotive motif, conjuring up images of hope and memories of the past. The other two cabins are decorated with images of people from across the globe holding hands, symbolizing love and harmony. In particular, the cabin interior exhibits both pictures and descriptions of DMZ’s past and present, allowing visitors to learn about the site even before arriving. Hop aboard the train to embark on a beautiful journey of history, nature and peace!

Gyeongui Line (Yongsan-Dorasan) Course

The Gyeongui Line course runs from Yongsan Station to Dorasan Station, the northern-most station on the line. The train operates once a day (round-trip), excluding Mondays and public holidays. In October 2015, a unification platform was opened at the final stop, Dorasan Station. The platform is decorated with images of the Berlin Wall, a symbol of the German Unification; a U.S. military train that operated in East and West Germany during the Cold War period; and also messages wishing for unification written by the Korean citizens.

Course (train stops): Yongsan → Seoul → Munsan → Uncheon → Imjingang → Dorasan

※ Visitors who wish to visit The 3rd Tunnel or participate in the Security Tour from Dorasan Station will have to purchase a tour package in advance and present their identification.
