Landmark · Tourist Spot
A classy evergreen seaside sanatorium, Badaguan Scenic Resort offers a survey of colonial European architecture at the turn of the 20th century. Originally a residential area for Germans during their protectorate of Qingdao, this historical coastal mansion retreat for foreigners features national styles of architecture from more than 20 European countries, distributed across 70 hectares (1,729 acres). Each street lined with a different tree species, the area makes a popular spot for wedding photography. Take a stroll along the canopied lanes to explore architectural styles including Romanesque, Neo-Gothic, Baroque, and Rococo, and then relax and gaze at the ocean from the sandy beach.
