The Pier, or Zhan Qiao, which appears on Tsingtao beer bottles, has been a landmark icon for more than a century. It is one of the most popular places in Qingdao to go for a stroll. Built in 1891 as a 440 meter long military pier jutting out into Qingdao Bay, it features a pavilion above the water, named "Huilan Pavilion"(回澜阁), at the end of the pier.

Located to the southeast of Zhanqiao Pier, Xiaoqingdao Island is a pleasant little islet. Connectting with the land by a narrow way, it’s been one of the symbols of Qingdao. A bird’s eye view of the island reveals that it is shaped like an ancient lute, and hence it is also known as Lute Island (or Qindao 琴岛).
