Zhanqiao Pier

An enduring symbol and iconic landmark of Qingdao, the Zhanqiao Pier measures at 440-meters (1443 feet) long and eight meters wide. It was extended by the Germans and it remains a popular tourist spot as the first wharf in Qingdao. Built in 1892 (late Qing Dynasty), the pier was initially for military use. At the end of the pier, there is a pavilion, constructed in 1931. You might already recognize it – as part of the logo for Tsingtao beer! Within walking distance, you can also see the iconic beacon on the small Qingdao Island, and visit the China Navy Museum and many other neighborhoods featuring German colonial architecture. It’s also the most ideal location for taking in Qingdao’s neon-lit coastline at night.
