A picturesque Art Nouveau timber and stonework mansion, Qingdao Site Museum of the Former German Governor's Residence 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.
