Old German Governor's Mansion (Qingdao, Shandong)

The Qingdao Guest House (青岛尹斌关) was built in 1905 as the residence of the German governor during the colonial period of the Kiautschou Bay concession.

 

Qingdao (青岛, and formerly anglicized as Tsingtao) is a city in eastern Shandong Province on the east coast of China. It is the largest city in its province. Administered at the sub-provincial level, Qingdao has jurisdiction over six districts and four county-level cities. As of 2014, Qingdao had a population of 9,046,200 with an urban population of 6,188,100. It lies on the Shandong Peninsula and looks out to the Yellow Sea.

 

From 1898 to 1914, the port city was controlled by the German Empire. As a result the city has a number of historic German colonial buildings.

 

Qingdao is a major seaport, naval base, and industrial center. The world's longest sea bridge, the Jiaozhou Bay Bridge, links the main urban area of Qingdao with the Huangdao district, straddling the Jiaozhou Bay. It is also the site of the Tsingtao Brewery, the second largest brewery in China, a relic of German control.
