Zhan Bridge (Zhanqiao)
Adjust font size:

0.3 miles from Qingdao Railway Station, Zhan Bridge (trestle in Chinese), a Qingdao landmark, welcomes travelers at their first stop in this beautiful coastal city.


Originally built in 1891 as a naval pier, Zhan Bridge is 440-meter (1444-foot) long and 10-meter (33-foot) wide with giant granite supports. Lotus-shaped lamps provide illumination and decoration. At the south end of the bridge is a Chinese style octagon pavilion standing in contrast to European buildings in the background.



Qingdao Bay is crescent shaped; like an arrow, the bridge shoots into the broad sea. Standing afar, a white lighthouse braves the waves and wind, while the Small Green Island (Xiao Qind Dao) is a serene platform for exuberant trees. Dynamic and static scenes meld.


No. 6 Beach west of the bridge and Zhan Bridge Park around the bridge invite visitors to enjoy the beauty of Qingdao Bay.
