This is the best place in Qingdao to have a stroll or rest if you have a couple hours or afternoon to spare. You can walk along the streets admiring the buildings or find the park and sit down nex to the pond listening to the birds. However, only one building is open to visitors and watch out the always...

Badaguan is an area built by Germans - you can only get into a few buildings - but it is a nice place to walk around and relax. Look at the architecture and realise you are still in China. Visit the German prison and the Government Guest house (used to be the German governors mansion) for a bit of early... More

My wife and I walked through the Badaguan neighborhood and were never really sure what we were meant to look for. the streets were very different than the rest of Qingdao, and we eventually stumbled upon a nice looking castle, but there was an entrance fee. Instead we walked a bit further to the beach and continued walking through the... More

Headed to this area as it was the top rated attraction above so many things in Qingdao. But there was really nothing fantastic - just some large homes, quiet housing estate and that was it. Disappointed.

Badaguan or "8 great passes", named after the passes at the great wall is an area in Qingdao where the Germans and later Japanese build their residents. The area is nice and calm with little traffic and quite beautiful in the evening. But I also agree with the other reviewers that it's nothing very fancy. Also many houses are starting... More

A good stroll around the area offers interesting discoveries on every turn of the maze like streets in this area. The architecture of these grand old buildings is obviously of a different and earlier era. The only regret is the high walls surrounding these compounds that does not allow a better view of these beautiful buildings. There are bicycles available... More

It's just an area filled with lots of European-ish houses. Nothing special about this place, you can't even enter the house. This place is huge and you cannot find any public transportation once you go inside.

It is quite nice. We drove around it couple of times. Then we had a chance to stop and look. We only stayed here for half hour.

This is a pleasant area with nice streets and houses adjacent to the beach, and I suppose it is a calm oasis compared with the bustle of most of the city. However, you can't go in the houses (obviously); the best sights are the brides and grooms among the trees and on the beach enduring their 'wedding-photo day'.
