Quindao was known in German as Tsingtau or historically known as Tsingtao. The Jewish Cemetery at Tsingtao was just north of the International Cemetery and set outside its walls. Known originally as the Europäer Friedhof, and later as the German Cemetery, this cemetery was built by German community on five terraces of the southern slope of Bismark Hill, outside the village of Tsingtao. The location is now a neighborhood in the city of Qingdao.
A small Jewish Cemetery was built outside the walls and to the north, near the only entrance into the larger International Cemetery.
Sometime during Cultural Revolution the tombs were destroyed and the stones used to construct a ditch in Zhongshan Park, down the hill from the cemetery's original location.
