Had a spare morning whilst on a business trip to Qingdao, so took some time to visit this church. You need to pay to enter, but I guess that keeps the milling crowds out. There is not much information as to this history of the cathedral other than it seems to be linked to Qingdao's European influence previously. The church... More

Interesting Church - easy to find and worth to take a look. You can visit it during day and night time. Offers nice view. Many German buildings around.

We stayed at Motel 168 Railway Station branch and the church was within 10 mins walking distance from our motel. The church was on top of a low gradient road and right at the corner before the road sloped upwards to the church was the embarkation and disembarkation point for the Airport Express coach. For those who intend to take... More

Good if u know the history of the Catholic Church and Catholicism. It reminds of the churches in Europe. Only bugbear was the many couples taking photos n the photographers chasing bystanders to go away. ,

It is interesting to see a church in China but that's about it. The church is quite simple inside. More interesting are all the wedding celebration outside of it.

If you're from the West, you will recognise Christianity. Well, it's rare amongst the Chinese, so it was good to go, get a taste of home. There was lots of newly-wed married couples taking wedding photos. Part of the Old town, German style Catholic Church.

Once again, just an old church on top a hill. Good with the local, as they use this to take their wedding photos.

There were about twenty couples having their wedding pictures taken there during my short visit there. A must see landmark building, but it's not open to public to see the inside. On the same street as the airport bus stop and the hotel to buy the bus tickets.
