Introduction


Join us as we explore more about the former foreign concessions that were located in Tianjin in the late 1800s to mid 1900's. In this walk we will visit the former American Russian and German concessions.


They weren't always on the best of terms, but the Americans, Russians and Germans were all here and they all staked out a claim, at least for a little while. Tianjin played host to several American men who would later hold the title of President, Secretary of State and General in the U.S. Army. Russian residents of this city came from both sides of their own national revolution and some ended up stateless and unable to return home. The Germans didn't stay long relative to other foreign occupiers, but made big strides in making Tianjin feel like home and had a positive impact on city planning in the process. Come along as we discover what legacy and buildings these three nations left in Tianjin. We also pass by the former consulate of a European nation that didn't have a concession in Tianjin.


The tour will be led by Michael Hart, Chairman of the Tianjin Executive Committee of AmCham China. He has resided in Tianjin for over a decade and most of his career focused on commercial real estate in China.


The walking tour will be approximately 3.5 hours. Please wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather.
