4.6/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web
The site of the infamous Nazi Wannsee Conference, Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz was reopened as a Holocaust museum in 1992, after having first served as a school. Historian Joseph Wulf recommended that the site be converted into a Holocaust museum and memorial in 1965, but the German government claimed there was a lack of funding. Today, the permanent exhibits of photographs, documents planning the Holocaust, texts, and films remind visitors of the immense tragedy and explain how it happened.

  • Far out, in much to beautiful surroundings. Who wants to prepare themselves, and enjoys "reading", should access to Frank Harris '"fatherland"...

  • This is one those places that's both beautiful and terrifying at the same time. Here, on 20 January 1942, a conference was held to discuss the implementation of the nazi "final solution to the Jewish question". If you're in Berlin or nearby I think it's your duty as a human being to visit this place and learn what took place here. This place is easily accessible via S-bahn from Berlin and then a short bus ride from the Wannzee station. The entrance is free, but they do encourage you to donate a sum (2€ is suggested). Audio guides are available for 3€. One minor complaint I have is that the informational texts, of which there were many, were a bit too compact (if that's the correct word) with text in different languages. It all sort of blended together and after a while it got kind of frustrating trying to find the English text. Finally I can recommend the 2001 movie 'Conspiracy' with among others, Kenneth Branagh and Stanley Tucci. An excellent movie that is about the conference that took place here.
  • Very informative site. Free of charge. To get here take bus 114 from the Wannsee Sbahn Station. In the summer months don't forget to go around and see the garden and the lake view. The contrast between the serenity of the place and the evil nature of the events that took place here is important.
  • take time for this extraordinary stunning and frightening exhibition. should be a go to place every half a year. unbelievable.. still. school class tours are great
  • Provides informative look back on how national socialism and their actions against the Jews started. Great history and beautiful scenery around the area too.
  • The Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz is know as the lakeside villa where Nazis planned the annihilation of the European Jews. This is now one of the most well planned museums on the history of WW2 that you will ever find. What makes this museum unique is that it is somewhat removed from the fast pace of Berlin. This allows you to soak up the descriptions and explanations provided of the primary sources found in this museum. Moreover, the museum details the antisemitic measures taken by the Deutsches Reich prior to 1939 that excluded the Jews from common society. This informs visitors as to how the Nazi Party manipulated public perception of the Jews, which expedited their radical rise to power.
