Qingdao Station (simplified Chinese: 青岛站; traditional Chinese: 青島站; pinyin: Qīngdǎo zhàn) is a railway station in Qingdao, Shandong, in the People's Republic of China. In the years leading up to the 2008 Summer Olympics, the station underwent a significant renovation in order to accommodate increased passenger traffic for the Olympic period and afterwards. The new station is an example of German architectural traits incorporated into a Chinese-designed building, which is consistent with many structures in Qingdao.
