The Catholic Church of Qingdao is an impressive building judged by its size. The location on the top of a small hill with European architecture style houses makes you think you are in Europe.

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.
