Historically important

This area is covered in historical buildings from the German occupation of Qingdao. It is a park/area by the coast. One of the best things to see in Qingdao.

Nice area, with some sightseeing points and recreaction character. The interesting villas and building from the beginning of XX century. The quiet street and impressive plants. Not far from the strict city centre.

For a ricket of 8.5 RMB, this is cheap for China. The building itself is beautiful and yuo will take lots of good pictures. Very nice todo item if you do the beach walk

The hua shi Lou is a must see. It's a mansion in German castle style built in 1920s and various Chinese leaders stayed there before. The outdoor cafe was good too. Very nice architecture and very good views of the beach. There are many gardens in the neighborhood of badaguan and nice to have a stroll. You can get down... More

The Badaguan scenic route resort is the go-to places for photo in Qingdao, I went here with my girlfriend for a walk and it is one of the best places in Qingdao. This area is away from the rowdy and noisy downtowns and devoid of lots of tourists. If you have a lot of time on your hands, please visit... More

This is where the East meets the West. These old western style villas, with tree lined streets, offers a pleasant walk. You feel like that you are in Europe somewhere, and not in China. A definite area to visit when you are in Qingdao.

Amazing architecture, tree shaded lanes and a feel of class is what characterises a walk in this area. The walk is worth it insofar every house has a unique architecture and has a history attached to it. It is worth spending a few hours in the area.

We lived in Qingdao for six months. On my birthday, I spent the day walking around this area. I took photos of the gorgeous homes, but the photos don't do the place justice. These homes were built nearly 100 years ago by Germans and other Europeans who lived here. The quality of craftsmanship in these homes is the reason they... More

It's not quite a castle as people describe, but it is quite nice. The area is also really nice but much better in the summer.
