Haus der Wannsee-Konferenz, Berlin

(4.5/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Not for the faint of heart! Very detailed descriptions and original documents of the negotiations. It is really terribly there, but worth the visit. Especially in summer highly recommended because it has a great view on Lake Wannsee and can go for a walk in the connection there. Fun fact: Only a few houses down the street is one of the locations for the series doctors diary, the Villa of Alexis of Baq.

  • The beautifully situated House documented the wrong machine of the German NAZI regime in an excellent way. Nothing happened in secret, rather it was silt laid down. For example, if a person had to endure this or that form of persecution due to her Jewish ancestry. Very impressive and typical german in his way, because absolutely systematic and transparent.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • Great historical place to learn from. People hosting there are very knowledgeable on all topics.
  • 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.
  • Very interesting site for Jews and non Jews. The dissonance between the peaceful location and what people did there 75 years ago is amazing!
