Qingdao German Zongdulou Former Site, Qingdao

(120+ reviews on the web)
Specialty Museum
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. Put Qingdao German Zongdulou Former Site into our Qingdao tourist route planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Qingdao.

  • 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。
  • Indoors in the summer is cool. The building is to be adored
