Zhan Bridge (Zhanqiao)

Updated:2008-06-03 15:09 | Source:

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

  Originally built in 1891 as a naval pier, Zhan Bridge is 440 meters (1444-foot) long and 10 meters (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.

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