Introduction to Qingdao Catholic Church (青岛天主教堂)

Qingdao Catholic Church, also called Qingdao St.Michael's Cathedral or Zhejiang Road Catholic Church, is the sole consecrated church in China. For the time it was established and a long period later, Qingdao St.Michael's Cathedral was the tallest structure in Qingdao. It was designed in a Gothic and Romanesque style by a German architect, Arthur Bialucha.

The church was closed from late 1960s and early 1970s, later in 1982 it was reopened for weekend services and festive celebrations of Christian festivals.

The catholic church take up a land of 11,480 sq.meters, towering to the height of 56 meters. It is mainly built with yellow granite and reinforced concrete, adorned with simple but refined carvings. Windows and doors are in semicircular arched shape with smooth lines. Two twin clock towers stand in the upper part of the church, each with a conical spire covered with red tiles. On the top of each spire stands a 4.5-meter high colossal cross.

The interior of the church is decorated with g garnish pictures and life-size wax figures of Christians. The surrounding area, radiating from the church and embracing several old 1930s German buildings, provides an ideal place for visitors to take a stroll.

The Mass takes place at 06:00AM everyday, with the Sunday Mass being observed between 08:00-09:00AM.
