Introduction to Qingdao German Street (德国风情街)

Qingdao German Street is actually a 1-km or so section of Guantao Road in Shibei District of Qingdao. It is developed as a important part of Qingdao city renewal, based on the relic area created and designed a hundred year ago as a colony by Germany, later been influenced by Janpanese occupation.

German Street starts from Tangyi Road in the south, and ends at Enxian Road in the north, intersecting vertically with Shanghai Road, Ningbo Road, and Guangdong Road. Along this street at present stands a total of 25 historic buildings, accounting for 71% of the total existing structures. Among these 25, 14 buildings are of German or Japanese charateristics.

Guantao Road was originally built in 1899, and became the economic center of Qingdao during Garman colonial period (1930s), reputed then as Qingdao's version of Wall Street. With economic and social heft, this area was home to up to 50 foreign firms with investments from Germany, Japan, US, UK and etc.

From 2009, as an essential part of old city rejuvenation, this colonial-era street was restored as the old. With meticulous arrangement, more functions were introduced to vitalize the area with the maximal level of preservation and daily function. Qingdao German Street was upgraded to a multifunctional area integrating economy and business, film-television culture, featured tour, and daily recreation.
