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

The church was peaceful and quite but it did feel like a visitor center and not a working church.Worth a visit even if its to compare it to a church from Europe.

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. The location is a favorite for local wedding photography and several couples can be seen posing at almost any moment. The interior is plain and simple.... More

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.
