Cross inside a church

The Christian (Protestant) Church, originally restricted to European residents of Qingdao, was constructed in the early 20th century. The cornerstone of the church was laid on April 19th, 1908, and the building was completed on October 23rd, 1910. Following the Romanesque and Jugendstil styles of Germany, the Christian (Protestant) Church stands as one of the most impressive buildings during Germany’s Occupation of Qingdao. Its powerful and magnificent design by Curt Rothkegel of Germany was constructed of brick, Mount Lao granite, steel, and wooden beams. The interior of the church is simple in design and Lutheran in its sparseness, apart from the elegant carvings on the pillar cornices. Qingdao’s Christian (Protestant) Church of Old Town has a floor space of 1,167.18 square meters. The beige walls are constructed of red brick and coated with corrugate mortar and paint. The eves are inlaid with rough-cut granite and most corners are decorated with protruding stones of granite.
