We went there at night. And the view was excellent. There were some small souvenir shops and the wind was just awesome. There were two singers singing some really nice songs for the tourists.

Nice place for a stroll on a windy evening. Very picturesque and a good spot for photography. The place could be improved with a few nice bars & restaurants, preferably open air.

This is a great place to go with kids. There are beautiful views, lots of vendors, and a nice walking pier with a beautiful pagoda-like structure on the end. This is a place with a lot of history that is uniquely Qingdao.

Nice stroll along this pier which was extended by the Germans when they developed the City. Views across the bays. Makes a great evening walk and the surrounding rocks and beaches great for crabbing. Nearby restaurants.

We live near here so it's a great place to visit. It can get really crowded in the summer, but that can also make it interesting. There are quite a lot of other things to do in the area as well.

although it was built in qing dynasty for military purpose, it is a beautiful scene at present. you can stand on it and enjoy the natural view of sea, and also can take a boat from there to the sea and enjoy the cityscape of qingdao.

Zhanqiao Pier is nice to walk with your family along the boardwalk area seeing everyone and remembering the Olympic sailing happening in China!
