Die Volksrepublik China liegt im Osten des eurasischen Kontinents, am westlichen Ufer des Pazifiks. Mit insgesamt 9,6 Millionen Quadratkilometern ist China eines der größten Länder der Erde. Damit ist China das drittgrößte Land der Erde. Es macht 1/4 des Festlands Asiens aus und entspricht fast 1/15 der Festlandsfläche der Erde. Die größte Ausdehnung von Ost nach West beträgt über 5 200 km.

China ist das bevölkerungsreichste Land der Welt. Die Bevölkerungszahl macht 21% der Weltbevölkerung aus. China ist ein einheitlicher Nationalitätenstaat mit 56 ethnischen Gruppen, wobei die Han-Chinesen 92% der gesamten Bevölkerung ausmachen. Die anderen 55 ethnischen Minderheiten, zu denen zum Beispiel Mongolen, Hui, Tibeter, Uiguren, Miao, Yi, Zhuang, Bouyei, Koreaner, Mandschuren, Dong und Yao zählen, haben vergleichsweise wenigere Angehörige.

China blickt auf eine Geschichte von 5.000 Jahren zurück und ist Heimat einer der ältesten Zivilisationen der Welt. Die lange Geschichte hat nicht nur die kulturelle Vielfalt geschafft, sondern auch zahlreiche historische Relikte hinterlassen. Chinesisch ist die in ganz China verwendete Sprache und auch eine der sechs von der UNO bestimmten Amtssprachen.

China ist ein faszinierendes Reiseziel und hält für den Besucher viele Überraschungen bereit, da China nicht nur aus Peking und Shanghai besteht und keineswegs nur die Chinesische Mauer oder die Verbotene Stadt zu bieten hat. Jeder der 22 Provinzen, 5 autonomen Gebieten, 4 regierungsunmittelbaren Städten und die Sonderverwaltungsgebiete Hongkong und Macao bieten gänzlich unterschiedliche Eindrücke und Erfahrungen bei Reisen nach China.

Unser China Reiseführer steht nicht als PDF zum Download zur Verfügung, jedoch können Sie alle Informationen über die Volksrepublik China kostenlos online lesen.

Hebei Introduction

Hebei surrounds Beijing and Tianjin, two of China’s four municipalities under the direct leadership of the Central Government.

Random photo: Impressions of China

Hebei’s geography, communications network, natural resources and markets give it a solid economic foundation.

Hebei Province has a history of more than 2,800 years. Industries include textiles, iron and steel, machinery, chemicals, petroleum, electrical power, porcelain, and food processing. Many trunk railways run through the city. Major tourist attractions are Longxing Temple, Norman Bethune International Peace Hospital of People’s Liberation Army (PLA), Zhaozhou Bridge, Chengde Mountain Summer Resort, and Outer Eight Temples.

Shijiazhuang 石家庄

With a history of more than 2,000 years, Qinhuangdao is situated at the eastern end of Hebei Province, neighbouring Liaoning Province. Legend tells that Emperor Qinshihuang stayed temporarily here for seeking immortality, hence the name. The city is non-freezing port, and it mainly exports coal and petroleum. Along the seacoast, it produces a large quantity of aquatic products. Industries include machinery, bridge building, glass and refractory material. Of interest to visitors are Shanhaiguan Great Wall, Beidaihe Beach, and Meng Jiangnü Temple.

Beidaihe 北戴河海滨 (the cradle of Chinese tourism)中国旅游业的摇篮

Many residents in Beijing and Tianjin would like to go to Beidaihe北戴河, a seaside resort along the Bohai Sea some 300 kilometers northeast Beijing to escape the summer heat and damp nights of July and August. Since it has been used as a summer resort with 719 villas by the royal family of the Qing Dynasty and then, a century ago, by foreign communities in Beijing and Tianjin, Beidaihe has grown into a popular folks’ destination to kill off the unbearable hot days. In fact, Beidaihe is so well known that many Chinese people think Qinhuangdao is a district of Beidaihe, not the other way round.

Jiaoshan 角山

A three-kilometers hike along the Great Wall will bring tourists to the Jiaoshan Mountain, the highest peak in the Qinhuangdao area. Tourists can take the bus to the foot of the mountain and from there a cable car will bring them all the way right up to the top, known for its jiao (horn) shaped rocks.

Old Dragon's Head 老龙头-the Starting Point of the Great Wall

The Old Dragon’s Head is the eastern starting point of the Great Wall; about 20 meters run into the sea. In ancient times, people used to refer to the Great Wall as a giant dragon and got its name. First built in 1381 during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the Old Dragon’s Head was bombarded by the Eight-Powers Allied Forces in 1900 and was not restored until 1987. The First Pass Under Heaven, built at the same time as the Old Dragon’s Head, is an important strategic point and is the first pass on the eastern end of the Great Wall, hence the name. The two-storeyed gate tower is 12 meters high and 23 meters wide. From its top, tourists can have a breath-taking view of the Bohai Sea to the south and of the Great Wall snaking its way up amongst the mountains on the northern side. The tower also holds an exhibition of ancient weapons. Sculptures of a few dozen general who were once stationed there complete the visit.

Shanhaiguan 山海关

Shanhaiguan is another district of Qinhuangdao. Shanhaiguan is known for its rich historic and natural attractions such as Laolongtou (Old Dragon’s Head), Yansai Lake and Jiaoshan Mountain. Shanhaiguan has always been an important corridor between northern and northeastern China and has witnessed many battles over the centuries. Strategically located between the mountains and the sea, the area got its name from its geographical location. Built upon the eastern starting point of the Great Wall, Shanhaiguan is one of a few Chinese cities with a complete city wall.

There are about 70 places of interest in Shanhaiguan. Laolongtou, the First Pass Under Heaven, Jiaoshan Mountain and Yansai Lake are the must-see sites.

Yansai Lake 燕塞湖

Yansai Lake is the only major site not directly connected to the Great Wall. Located 9 kilometers northwest Shanhaiguan, the lake is 15 kilometers long and more than 60 meters deep, and threads its twisting way between two mountains. By boat, tourists can enjoy different precipices towering along the lakeshores. Cypress and pine trees covering the mountains are mirrored in the lake. Those who have visited Guilin’s Li River or the Three Gorges of the Yangtze River are bound to experience the same feelings of wonder as they pass along the lake.

Pleasure-seekers can have access to a lot of beaches in the district of Shahaiguan, though the most convenient ones are possibly the two alongside the Old Dragon’s Head, each extending 200 meters wide and about 4 kilometers long. The water is reasonably clean, the beach smooth, the sands fine and the tides gentle.

Swimming there is a romantic experience—especially under the moonlight—with the Old Dragon’s Head and the Great Wall as a marvelous background. Motor-boating and horse-riding services are available and shower facilities are provided.

All trains bounding to Northeast China stop at the Shanhaiguan Railway Station. Unlike the Beidaihe Railway Station, which is 10 kilometers always from the beach area, the Shanhaiguan Railway Station is located right in town. The trains are air-conditioned and riding is about three hours from Beijing Railway Station to Shanhaiguan.

The Ancient City of Zhengding 正定古城

With its stunning temples, towers and gates, the ancient city of Zhengding in Hebei Province in North China is becoming increasing popular as a tourist attraction. Zhengding is called “the treasure-house” due to its wonderful Chinese ancient buildings and is quickly becoming one of the most famous ancient cities in the north. In the Spring and Autumn period (770-476 BC), the city was the capital of Yu State. Around 2,000 years ago Zhengding was one of the leading political and military centers in the north. The long history that this city holds has left plenty of splendid historic relics. There are currently five places of historical interest that are preserved by the state and seven sites that are preserved by the province. Longxing Temple, built in the Sui Dynasty (581-618) and extended into the Song Dynasty (960-1279), has the oldest and highest bronze statue of Guanyin ever discovered in China as well as other ancient Buddhist statues. It is an ideal place to study the style of Buddhist temple architectures of the Song Dynasty. There are also several areas where film companies make and shoot their films in Zhengding, including Rongguofu, Ningrong Street, Among them, Rongguofu, an architectural complex in the style of the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911), has the reputation of being “East Hollywood.” Nearly 80 films, including the Dreams of Red Mansion, a film based on a famous ancient novel of the same name, was shot here.

Qinhuangdao 秦皇岛

With a history of more than 2,000 years, Qinhuangdao is situated at the eastern end of Hebei Province, neighbouring Liaoning Province. Legend tells that Emperor Qinshihuang stayed temporarily here for seeking immortality, hence the name. The city is non-freezing port, and it mainly exports coal and petroleum.

The Jinshanling Great Wall 金山岭长城

The Jinshanling (Golden Mountain Peak) Great Wall was first built in the six century during the Northern and Southern Dynasties (420-589). Along it are 67 watchtowers, all in different styles, at average intervals of 150 meters. During the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644) General Qi Jiguang (1528-1587) reinforced the structure of the Jinshanling Great Wall by making it higher and denser and by building double walls at strategic sections. Its gentle gradient makes Jinshanling a vulnerable spot, easy to attack but difficult to defend. At the Jinshanling section of the Great Wall, however, the walls are more solid, and the watchtowers taller and more concentrated. Viewed from a distance, the Jinshanling Great Wall is like a giant dragon, zigzagging its path over the mountain peaks whose line it follows.

Keen-eyed photographers know that the best place to take pictures of the Great Wall is not Badaling or Shanhaiguan, but Jinshanling. The Great Wall from Simatai in Beijing to Jinshanling in Hebei Province is the best-preserved stretch; therefore, many overseas visitors choose it. It is said that there are more overseas Great Wall climbers at Jinshanling than there are Chinese people. People also say that anyone who has climbed Jinshanling is not interested in seeing any other part of the Great Wall, as it retains its original Ming-dynasty outlook, and so vividly reflects the full ethos of that epoch. Jinshanling is far less crowded than the Badaling or Shanhaiguan Great Wall, thus giving today’s climbers a hint of the isolation that must have been felt by its ancient defenders.

Chinese imperial dynasties appeared, prospered and died out throughout history. The Great Wall bears witness to their vicissitudes, and demonstrates the Chinese people’s hard working spirit, and the splendid culture and history of the Chinese civilization.

Cangzhou Iron Lion 沧州铁狮子

The iron lion is the oldest and largest iron-casting art piece still in existence in China, providing a high valuable material for the study of metallurgy, sculpture, and the history of Buddhism.

Repairs on the country’s biggest iron lion in Cangzhou started late 2001 to prevent it from collapsing. As the two proposals chosen by experts from 18 suggestions were undergoing final feasibility assessment. The team of experts in charge of the feasibility study consists of experts on metal protection, cultural heritage protection, material dynamics and climate from both China and foreign countries, including Japan, Britain and the United States. The cracks in the lion’s legs have already become smaller because experts removed most of the solidifying filler deposited in them in October 2000. They believe that it was the swelling and then erosion of this solidifyingh filler stuck in the lion’s left rear leg, which is an unsolved problem. Without unveiling the detailed repair proposals, the final goal in their restoration effort is to eliminate the lion’s external supports. Built in 953, and listed in 1961 as one of China’s first group of cultural relics under State protection, the 40-ton iron lion, which is 5.78 meters in height, 6.5 meters in length and 3.17 meters in width, began to develop cracks in the past few years. As it was believed that the lion’s legs might collapse at any time, two external steel supporting frames were put in place in 1999.

China umspannt mit seiner enormen Ausdehnung die geographische Länge von fünf Zeitzonen. Dennoch hat China überall die gleiche Zeitzone. Ob Harbin in Nordchina, Shanghai an der Ostküste, Hongkong in Südchina oder Lhasa im Westen - es gibt genau eine Uhrzeit. Die Peking-Zeit. Eingeführt wurde die Peking-Zeit 1949. Aus den Zeitzonen GMT+5.5, GMT+6, GMT+7, GMT+8 und GMT+8.5 wurde eine gemeinsame Zeitzone (UTC+8) für das gesamte beanspruchte Territorium. Da die politische Macht in China von Peking ausgeht, entstand die Peking-Zeit.

Das chinesische Neujahrsfest ist der wichtigste chinesische Feiertag und leitet nach dem chinesischen Kalender das neue Jahr ein.

Vor 90 Jahren eröffnete in der Kantstraße in Berlin das erste China-Restaurant in Deutschland. 1923 war dies ein großes Ereignis. Fremdes kannten die Deutschen damals nur aus Zeitungen, Kolonialaustellungen und aus dem Zoo. Heute gibt es etwa 10.000 China-Restaurants in Deutschland. Gastronomieexperten schätzen jedoch, dass in nur 5 % (rund 500) Originalgerichte gibt. Üblich sind europäisierte, eingedeutschte Gerichte in einem chinesischen Gewand.
