The design of St. Michael's Church is in the style of the Italian Renaissance. The hall is 18 meters high, spacious and bright, with seven large chandeliers hanging from the ceiling, and an altarpiece at the rear, with a dome-like mural painting, which is solemn and beautiful. It can accommodate thousands of believers and is the largest Gothic building in Qingdao. It is also the only consecrated church in China and a masterpiece of Christian architecture. During the Cultural Revolution, the church was severely damaged. It was reinstated in April 1981 and listed as a cultural relic of the province that is under protection.
