This was a beautiful cathedral. As some others have mentioned entry is free is you are Catholic, otherwise entry is 10RMB per person. (We showed through sign language that we wanted to go inside to pray since our Chinese isn't that good.) This is a very well maintained Church. Outside the Cathedral fence there are people selling snacks and craft... More

I went down to visit the church and was quite surprised by the number of wedding couples there taking photos. I have seen this before in other Chinese cities like Beijing, but here I found over 20 couples getting their wedding photos all around the church. Very interesting!

A very popular location to watch young couples pose for their wedding photos before their actual wedding. If you are particularly interested in European architecture in China I recommend you to Qingdao over Shamian Island and GuLangYu island as it is not over run with hawkers selling unrelated trinkets.

I have never seen so many brides in my life! We were walking around the city streets and stumbled across this small area. It was a good spot to relax and marvel at the line of brides, waiting for their shot in front of the church. Although we didn't enter the church itself, we enjoyed our time spent here for... More

A great place for a photo-op if that's what you're into, otherwise it's like being on a movie set. I didn't go inside the church but I am fairly sure it pales in comparison to those found among Europe. For me it was worth a visit because I am familiar with the history of Qingdao, particularly the German occupation.

I was walking around Qingdao. The church is situated in a square with no traffic. The most amazing thing was there were at least 15 couples having there wedding photographs taken. It was interesting to see.

It's relatively beautiful outside with quite a few things to do in the area as well. You'll see lots of couples getting their wedding shots done there.

Clobber stone roads and the church makes you think that you are in Europe. There are a few cafes along the street to the church.

This is located along the Zhongshan Pedestrian area. Very tall church and you can see the roof as you walk along Zhongshan area. This is now under renovation till March so not able to view the inner area,

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
