This German "castle" is a great way to see some European architecture in Qingdao. I would encourage you to walk around the area as you will see other examples of architecture from other countries including Denmark and America. This place is also very close to the beach so you can take a short walk down to enjoy the sand and... More

This neighbourhood reeks of prerevolutionary excess, but has been preserved. Huge single family homes with too much wealth still (multiple cars, dogs running loose in the yards) that seem to defy history.

This attraction provides pleasant parks, views of homes built for foreigners during the occupation of Shandong Province by Germans and Japanese. (The main Japanese homes are closer to the catholic Church.) This is not a state owned facility but rather ownership is private and some houses are undergoing renovation. Some charge a small fee for entry that goes for maintenance,... More

Green spaces and colonial architecture mark this special borough. Although the main building was closed for Chinese New Year this was still well worth a visit. On a fine winters day it is peaceful and lovely, however I would imagine it become overcrowded in the summer.

Nothing great. The whole place is well maintained but the houses are not. Some houses need to pay fee in order to enter. Some are closed permanently.

A favorite walking spot on any day of the week is the stylish Badahuan area. Frequented by 100s of wedding couples for their wedding pics, the tree lined streets and the amazing beaches make it a strange paradise in the middle of the buzzing and beautiful Qingdao.

Badaguan is famous for its garden-like villas and foreign-styled buildings. The area used to be a place where people from UK, France, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Greece, Spain, … etc. They constructed buildings in each of their unique national styles. ( Qingdao was a German protectorate during 1897-1914). The streets are lined with different trees and flowers. Scenes are so beautiful.... More

For the history, the scenery, and the different kinds of houses around this place. Very nice. Try to avoid high season though.

Considering the city has the best beer in this country, it's worth of visiting. People there are nice and friendly, and you can easily find someone who can speak English and excited about showing their city to travelers (plus they get chance to practice their English). Excellent place to visit!

Wandering around the Badaguan neighborhood, particularly on a sunny, warm fall day is a great way to get a sense of early 20th century "colonial" Qingdao. The area is very lush with trees forming canopies along most streets and plenty of parkland and scenic walks along the coast. At times it's hard to believe you're in China given the large,... More
