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. With two train routes running daily – Gyeongui Line, departing from Yongsan Station to Dorasan Station and Gyeongwon Line, departing from Seoul Station to Baengmagoji Station, let’s hop on the DMZ train to embark on a beautiful journey of history, nature and peace!

The DMZ Peace Train consists of three cabins, each designed with a different theme: peace, love and harmony. The first cabin (peace) 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.

Gyeongui Line (Yongsan - Dorasan)

First introduced in May 2014, the DMZ Train Gyeongui Line 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 on the Gyeongui Line, Dorasan Station, mainly featuring the Berlin Wall, a symbol of the German Unification, a U.S. military caboose operated in East and West Germany during the Cold War period, and also messages of unification written by the Korean citizens.

Train stops: Yongsan → Seoul → Neunggok → Munsan → Uncheon → Imjingang → Dorasan
