Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz, Berlin

4.6
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.

  • I knew not what would await me here, but it was history for the touch and understand. The Holocaust was planned at the wannsee Conference and organized. In the exhibition becomes clear, what was really planned and how organization was planned and pulled through. It is also clear that it went not only to the destruction of the people, but also about their property to become what. What business, was property and furniture and as the mood at the time was. Very impressive and I'm going safely later years in some.

  • Historically speaking, this place is fundamental. If not do understand, it informs on what were the years of terror that cannot forget even after more than 70 years.

  • The exhibition shows very clearly the bureaucratic processing of the annihilation of dissent. The extermination of Jews and others at the desk was systematically planned and bureaucratic minorities. It is a Memorial of terror and just so impressive, terrifying and stressful, because here was planned and organized the extermination of millions of innocent people. It was settled as a management process. The exhibition gives this impressive.

  • The house of the conference, is quite impressive and luxurious. The house is surrounded by a beautiful serene garden, with small neo classical statues. The indoors of the house are made of marble. There is a spiral staircase, leading up to the library and offices. On the front there is the dining room and other rooms to for hosting. The balcony has a view the rest of the garden and the Grosse Wannsee Lake. (parts of it are being renovated) Ironically this is where the famous Wannsee conference took place. The place where senior Nazi Officials met and devised what is regarded as the solution to the Jewish Problem. Supposedly a sterile environment, where one of the most terrible genocides was planned. Not necessarily mean for the weak at heart.
  • One of the best museums I've been to, with great detail and an awesome educational staff. The beautiful surrounding also emphasizes the intensity of the decisions made at the Wannsee conference
  • The Villa provides a very detailed history of the atrocities committed by the Gestapo and SS during the reign of the Third Reich. In particular the conference held here in January 1942 to determine the "final solution" and how best to implement this. Entry is also free..
  • Nice house, terryfing conference that took place. Sadly a part of the exhibition ist closed due to construction. The exhibit costs no fee though.
  • Very important museum , but I think it would be more interesting to have a simulation of the table and participating figures (can be with wax models) , for a good visualization.

Where to stay in Berlin

The Kreuzberg neighborhood near the Oberbaumbrüke bridge is central and full of Berlin icons: street art, a piece of the Berlin Wall, the East Side Gallery, and a proliferation of cafes. Friedrichshain is another option with a hip vibe due to the students who congregate at its cafes and galleries. Consider Mitte as a historic home base. Mitte is the area where almost all of Berlin's well-known buildings are located, and it is within walking distance of Alexanderplatz. For a peaceful residential area, try Charlottenburg-Wilmersdorf where the streets are lined with boutiques and quiet coffee shops.
