Built in 1903 by a German official as a hunting and fishing villa. There is a nice surrounding garden with many locals sketching the façade. Combines Roman and Gothic architectural styles. You can access several levels with good views out to sea and the coast....More

The villa itself is nothing much to look at (at least not if you are from a country where old buildings are present in abundance), and inside there are some more or less interesting old photos of historic Qingdao. However, the view from the top...More

Yes, it is nice to see the view from the top deck but otherwise there is nothing here. The house is only about 85 years old but it has not been kept up at all. It should be restored and furnished to the period and...More
