Qingdao is special among Chinese cities due in large part to its 19th- and 20th-century history. The city, whose name was formerly anglicized as Tsingtao, was a concession port to the Empire of Germany. It is well known for its Tsingtao beer and its lovely...More

The Protestant church is beautifully located on top of a small hill. The yellow and green colors of the building are special and make it a great object for photographers. The interior is rather simple and the climb up the tower hardly worth the effort...More

Germans lived in Qingdao from the mid-late 1890s to around 1914. So, there's a lot of German influence here. This church is part of that influence. Only 10 RMB to tour the church when there are no services going on. One should perhaps be thankful...More
