Pier / Boardwalk · Tourist Spot
Get a sweeping view of Qingdao at Zhanqiao Pier, a 440 m (1,444 ft) long wharf that extends into the sea. A large octagonal observation pavilion stands at the end of the pier, giving you a panorama of the crescent-shaped skyline and the bay. A landmark of the city and recognizable on a local beer label, the granite-columned pier symbolizes Qingdao's development, as the first wharf built as a naval pier in 1891. Join locals in a stroll around the pleasant surrounding area, where you can dip your feet into the shallows of a nearby beach.
