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.

A very strange place. We didn't go inside the Church, instead we just took photos of the staggaring amount of Chinese couples out taking wedding photos. If you are the kind of person who enjoys such things it would also be a fantastic place for photobombing! The building itself is alright but just for the weird sight of around 100... More

Definitely the prettiest Church in Qingdao. The interior is very well maintained. The stained-glass windows are beautiful and sculptures within the church depict the many scenes from the Bible. There is also an old-school organ at the top.

Great for a short walk. You can see there is a lot of couple taking wedding photos in front of the church. Nearby there is a number of cafe which is good for relax and chill.

The architecture and interior of the church itself is only moderately interesting, although it does provide an important glimpse into Qingdao's history as a German concession. The real draw, however, is the spectacle of upwards of twenty newlyweds snapping wedding pics at any given time in the picturesque square in front of the church; it makes for a unique and... More

I have never been charged to enter a church. They even have it gated off that you can not enter before paying at window. I have traveled to many places. Yes, they most churches request donations, but not a set fee. It was a very well maintained church. All I can really say about it.

Easy access and a must see. Not an amazing piece of architecture, but this is a significant historic site.

You’ll find hundreds of couple making wedding photos, nice little restaurants and coffee shops and some Catholic history in and around the church.

This church is an icon in China about the Catholic community. To visit you have to pay 10RMB but if you are Catholic is free entrance. Is a piece of the story that shows how the colonial way was here many time ago. Moreover all this quarter is filled of beautiful shops and people that sale souvenirs and nice gifts.

Nestled in an area of European architecture dating from the pre-WW1 occupation of Shandong province by German forces, the Qingdao Church sits on top of a small hill and the small window in the bell tower affords a view of Small Qingdao Island and the lighthouse in the bay. Photography is restricted inside the building. The church functions as an... More
