Qingdao Site Museum of the Former German Governor's Residence, Qingdao
(3.9/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This former German governor's residence is a very good small museum with German architectural design of 110 years ago. While its outlook remains a timeless building making a good subject of photograph...  more »
  • 在中國找到了德國氣息!德國總督樓舊址博物館又叫迎賓館,是一百多年前德國侵佔青島時期所建造的總督官邸。這是一座非常漂亮的德國古堡式建築,其內部為宮廷式木質結構,如今依然可見到堪比歐洲宮廷般奢華的內部陳設。迎賓館背後便是信號山公園,可一併遊覽。登上信號山山頂,能俯看迎賓館和青島市,眺望海景,視野絕佳。
