Qingdao Christian Church, Qingdao

#2 of 18 in Historic Sites in Qingdao
See an important landmark of the old town at Qingdao Christian Church, an active place of worship built by German missionaries. Built in 1934 in a striking Romanesque Revivalist style, with twin towers and a cruciform plan, the cathedral stands atop a hill, dominating the surrounding area with a height of 56 m (184 ft) and autumnal coloration. Under Chairman Mao and the time of the Cultural Revolution, the church was abandoned and fell into disrepair. Repaired and reopened by the government in 1985, the church stands as a Provincial Historic Building, is open for services, and has become a popular site for photography.

  • This is one of the highlight of visit, the building itself was grand, German architecture at its best. The stain glass and wood structures along the building was magnificent. At the entrance , there a...  more »
  • Qingdao is one of the landmark buildings, the pier is very close to the nearby residential buildings are to be demolished, the church remains intact, tickets 10 yuan, which can be visited, there is nothing superfluous.

  • It's worth for you even just to reach there for an iconic photo taking. It's about 10 minutes walk from the Qingdao railway station/subway station  more »

  • Nice. Another great location for wedding photos. Can actually walk up the narrow flight of stairs to reach the clock tower and see its mechanism at work.
  • St. Michael Cathedral. A spiritual place where soul, spirit, and divine being get connected. Once you enter this place you feel a lot of energy.
  • This church could stand in every German town. It is beautifully restored. Services are held here.

  • 外觀漂亮、崇拜殿堂玻璃漂亮、樓上可看小小的鐘塔機關。可能是觀光客太多了,第一次上教堂要被追著要錢覺得很微妙⋯但可以理解,就當作是奉獻吧!阿門!
  • Admission, I'm not sure whether taking my money and the Catholic party was much better

Where to stay in Qingdao

For upmarket, high-rise hotels in Qingdao, look at the area to the east of the center, largely revamped in time for the 2008 Olympics. Here, skyscraper chain hotels jostle for position on the main streets, offering sea views and a wealth of additional facilities, while humbler options sit on the side streets, offering more basic lodgings, but still in new blocks. To the west, the more historic districts have a good set of hostels, hotels, and guesthouses to suit a wide range of budgets and tastes.
