Fodor's Review

The cookie dough–colored German Governor's Residence, transformed into a museum in 1996, was where the mustachioed governor and his aristocratic entourage wined, dined, and held sway over Qingdao for their short but influential tenure. Built in 1906 on a commanding perch over the Old City, the interior resembles a Bavarian hunting lodge, with wood paneling, glazed tile fireplaces, colored glass chandeliers. and quirky grandfather clocks. Notable Chinese guests since

include Mao Zedong, Zhou Enlai, and Deng Xiaoping. English audio guides are available.
