Like the Forbidden City, the Jingshan Park was reserved for the emperors and was made accessible to the public only after the abdication of the last Emperor.
The park, which is situated on a human-made hill, lies north of the Forbidden City on the north-south axis. Jingshan Park covers an area of 230,000 square meters, making it one of Beijing’s largest parks.
On the mountain stands the Wanchun Pavilion. From here you can see the breathtaking ancient city center: in the north is the Drum Tower, while in the south, the Forbidden City and the Wumen Gate lie. With a clear view, visitors can enjoy an unforgettable view over Beijing.
