Thanks german, left so many beautiful building in Qingdao. This one is easy to access, with a public square. It was very beautiful, and worth to pay for the inside view.

If you'd like to see wedding photographers on the grounds all taking the same photos, you'll love it here. I counted 9 in the 5-10 minutes I was there! The church itself is OK. Nothing amazing spectacular. I suppose it's a change to see a European style building in a Chinese town/city. Worth seeing, but I wouldn't go out of... More

If you're in Qingdao it's well worth seeing this church. It is most interesting because it is so anachronistic in a bustling Chinese town. It's a bustling little area, full of brides and grooms having their photos taken.

If you are getting married in Qingdao, you will probably have your pictures taken here. Lots of couples come here to have their pictures taken, along with tourists and those with dogs wearing tiny shoes. Not the most authentic experience in Qingdao, but worth the visit.

The place to go in good weather to see all the young couples on their pre wedding photo shoots. It is not unusual to see 20+ couples in full spectacular bridal wear during their open air photo shoots.

This church was build during 1930 so it's not so old as the ones in Europe. It was also destroyed by the communists when Mao took power and then later rebuilt to it's current stature. If you are like me from Europe this church will not impress you much. Entrance fee is 10yuan. And you can enter with shorts and... More
