Get an insightful look into the British Empire's influence in Taiwan by visiting The British Consulate at Takao. The building is a former consulate, built in 1865, and today it serves as a museum and a restaurant. Spend some time in the roof garden cafe and experience panoramic views of the city and its coastline and port. This two-story Renaissance-style museum teaches about the history of the city. Prepare yourself for a climb, however, because there are many stairs to the top.

  • windy , relax with tea but expensive.
  • Great scenic view from the top, can see all of Kaohsiung City, worth the entrance fee
  • 打狗(高雄市舊稱)英國領事館文化園區位於高雄市鼓山區,領事館在哨船頭碼頭邊,官邸則位於園區山丘上,兩處皆有入口,中間有打狗英國領事館登山古道銜接。 在還沒進入園區參觀之前可以先逛逛西子灣,諸如西子灣觀景平台和雄鎮北門。「打狗英國領事館文化園區」委外管理和對外營運,成功的讓古蹟活化再利用,目前已成為高雄市的知名觀光景點。
  • 心情抒壓的好去處,可以鳥瞰西子灣海景,相信若是晨昏來此,必定是有不同的天空雲系變化及海景顏色,點杯玫瑰園咖啡坐上一兩個小時,來場自我的心靈對話吧!
  • 高雄史蹟文物陳列館屬西子灣區內的特色景點,原為舊英國領事館領事官邸遺址,其建築依山坡而建,形式為陽台殖民地式樣。日據時期改作日本海洋測候所,是臺灣目前現存西式近代建築年代最久遠者,已公告為國家二級古蹟。內部陳列有打狗開拓史及近代史文獻、鳳山縣舊城模型及歷史圖照等重要文物資料。 The Kaohsiung Historical Relics Heritage Museum (former British Consulate) The Kaohsiung Historical Relics Heritage Museum is one of the unique attractions in the Sizihwan area. It used to be the British Consulate at Takao. The building, which features colonial style construction and balcony, was built alongside the hills. During the Japanese colonial era, it was used by Japan as a marinology data collecting center, and is the oldest Western-style modern structure still in existence in Taiwan. Having been announced as a level-two national heritage building, it exhibits the pioneering history of the Takao area and modern historical documents, as well as other important cultural relics such as a miniature model of the ancient Fengshan City and pictures of the past.
