Pleasant to walk around, but you only need a few minutes for a visit. The ticket is 10 yuan. Read the Wikipedia entry as you walk around for interesting information on the history of the church, as the English-language signs are basic at best.

You can see all the foreign influences in a lot of the architecture here. We were also shown the first ever road in Qingdao. There is a lot of history and impressive architecure.

Beautifully preserved Bavarian architecture. Large plaza which is great for wondering around and spending a bit of time to take in the surrounding. A contrast to the traditional Chinese cities. If you wander through the streets, you will see other colonial buildings from the German settlement past. We went on a weekday in January so there wasn’t much of a crowd.

St. Michael's is an early twentieth century German colonial cathedral, constructed before imperialists were booted from China by the May Wind. May the 4th be with the Chinese, you can see the red colored swirly monument elsewhere by the Qingdao seaside. The booting of all colonizers began in Shandong province, but remnants still remain. During the Cultural Revolution, someone actually died attempting to topple the cross from this beautiful relic to a different time. If you come expecting snitzchel, bratwurst, and little Germans in lederhosen, you've come to the wrong place, but if you expect a quaint little reminder of imperialism and the sights and smells of modern China, you've got it. It's a beautiful church, and a few old buildings remain. It's not a frequently touristed area, but shops and fun are to be had. No matter the time of year, you'll see beautiful Chinese women and handsome Chinese men taking elaborate wedding photos outside. Have fun, it's worth the trip, but if you know what to expect, you won't be disappointed. If you do want western food and to see the oldest movie theater in all of Asia, go to 1907 nearby. Most of all, have fun.

Even I have been to Qingdao many times, but this is the first time I went to visit the Church. Not just be with nice view under the blue sky, but feel quiet when staying inside. But first time I found the entry fee required at the church in qingdao, even in other country
