What people are saying:

An open attraction that blends with the street. Adjacent to the moat, there is a gate on each side. No tickets are required. It is one of the famous springs in Jinan. It is very close to the core scenic spot Baotu Spring. It is part of Jinan Huancheng Park and has convenient transportation. Heihu Spring is a natural cave with a height of 2 meters, a depth of 3 meters and a width of 1.7 meters. The spring water mainly comes from the southeast of the cave. The cave is built of bluestone, and the cave is hidden under the rock wall. The spring pool is made of stones and is slightly rectangular, about 17 meters wide and about 3 meters deep. Three stone-carved tiger heads are juxtaposed on the south wall of the spring pond. The spring water flows through the dark ditch and spews out through 3 stone tiger mouths. The maximum daily water inflow is 41,000 cubic meters, second only to Baotu Spring. There are 14 famous springs such as Pipa, Xizhong and Jiu Nu nearby, forming the Black Tiger Spring Group.

Additional Information


The Heihu Spring is one of the 4 major springs in Jinan. Beneath shades of trees, it is connected to the ancient city moat on the east side of the square and stands opposite the Liberation Pavilion. Only second to Baotu Spring, its water volume ranks 2nd among other springs in Jinan. The imposing Heihu spring is a natural cave with a depth of 3 meters. At night, the sound of Heihu spring is like a tiger howling from a distance, hence the name Heihu (black tiger). The spring water rushes into the square pool, where the water is clear with fresh algae floating around. Then the water goes into the city moat and eventually forms a waterfall. The Heihu Spring has become a great scenic spot in Huancheng park.
