Your children won’t exactly love you for taking them here in blistering heat. Truthfully, it’s not much fun either. It takes a while to get to the pier because of the extremely crowded pier. However, since Qingdao is known for its beer, and it’s the face of the beer, it’s the main landmark of the city of Qingdao. Your kids will complain, so a tip is get through it as quickly as you can and then take a speedboat (100RMB) a person as a reward. There is somewhat of a beach next to the pier. It is packed with rocks where the crowds hop from rock to rock. Your kids will enjoy that.

The area around the pier is nice and this is featured on the logo of Tsingtao Beer. The railway station, church, German governor's residence and a lot of interesting German architecture are within walking distance. There are also many shops near here that sell Tsingtao Beer in bags.

The view is pleasant but we went on a Saturday around noon and found it very crowded with many people pushing boat rides, photos on the pier and bags of bread for the thousands of seabirds. My wife was hesitant to walk the pier, thought she would get pooped on and got pooped on.

I think the area is still nice to see with the bay area but I would recommend going early or on a weekday to avoid the crowds of bird feeders. Closest metro is Qingdao Railway Station (not the north one).

There is nothing in the pavilion at the end, but since it's on the Tsingtao beer label, if you go to Qingdao it's basically a required visit!

This iconic bridge with the pavilion is very much appreciated by the locals. It was quite busy on the day we visited with some people tagging along their luggage, which I don't know where they were going. We, on the other hand, did not walk all the way out. Just enjoyed the view from the beach area.

We were not lucky as it was in period of limiting access of public places. The monument is small building in the bay connected with mainland with long bridge 🌉. You are in old city to visit parks, church ⛪️ or governor 🏠, underwater world 🌎 or Little Qingdao Island 🌴

The whole area around the beach has a high European 1970's atmosphere - Great for walking along the beach

Braving the cold wind, we walked out to the end of the pier, our local guide explaining how it had come about and what it was used for. A real piece of the history of Qingdao.

A quick must see attraction at Qingdao as it is iconic for the Tsingtao beer which originated from here. A mini self guided tour inside the pavilion on the history of the pavilion. The coastline is not the best, possibly due to the winter months but the local tourists still comes to hand feed the seagulls which the government has been trying to encourage to bring more birdlife to the coast. It’s an easy walk from there to other attractions like the Qingdao Catholic Church, the Jimo old town etc.

The pier is a must visit in Qingdao, everyone knows it from the beer bottle. Even though seaside is not that beautiful on that spot and it's super crowded during the holiday season. But you can get some nice pictures with seagulls.

The pier is good place to have nice view in QIngdao, not just good for sunsetting, but also nice view at the Signal Hill Park. About 10 years ago I have taken plenty photos of Seagulls, but unfortunately, I could not take any this time, maybe due to so many human activities around including boating, and light plane flying.
