Qingdao German Zongdulou Former Site, Qingdao

4.0
#2 of 53 in Museums in Shandong
A picturesque Art Nouveau timber and stonework mansion, Qingdao German Zongdulou Former Site represents an outstanding piece of colonial architecture. Dating back to the brief German occupation at the turn of the 20th century, the residence has retained its original period furniture, German-made fittings, and lots of historic photos. Later in the century, Chairman Mao and many other notable Communists used the mansion, which adds another layer of history and intrigue. Visit the elegant bar-restaurant in the basement. Unfortunately, you can't take photos inside the building. Plan a trip to Qingdao easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Of all the preserved sites I have been to in Qingdao this is probably the most well preserved. Good job.
  • A good place to see the red houses
  • 酒店一入門就見到蓮皇財神,感覺親切,廁所是日式的自動座廁,有少計舊,早餐尚可,酒店後園有小兔子,好可愛。check in 時有些小問題,最後也得解決。

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.
