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.

  • It is hard to imagine that the Nazi leaders once met in this beautiful House overlooking the Wannsee and decided on the mass murder of millions of people. When I visited the House came the first group of schoolchildren after one another in order to be informed about the story. There is no furniture or historic objects in the beautiful rooms, many with views of the Lake, but lots of information that shows the narrow thinking of the German leader. There are detailed diagrams of inter marriage förfärlighet, tables showing the number of Jewish inhabitants in different European countries, and even Sweden, and the minute from the two days of discussions. It is possible to get there by S-train going to Potsdam. And from the station in Wannsee, one can go further with the ring line 147. Admission is free, but you can leave a donation at reception.

  • I came with my class on a field trip. Wonderful and charming place, shame about the staff that prevented our professors with rudeness to describe the path because it is considered "guided tour" and is therefore not permitted.

  • We visited the Wannsee villa on the banks of the Lake. The Windows of the Villa offers breathtaking scenic views. The site is currently a museum telling the story of Nazi history. A perfect place not imaginable catch how it sprouted and grew roots. How it is written and signed "final solution". How is this place where life is 360 degrees and peace was signed and the end. The Museum is combined with audio solutions in various languages. Including Hebrew language. Entrance is free. Except for the rental. Very nice place and is heated. The Lake was frozen in. His heart froze and melts with spring coming and good in this world. The place is a must to visit. We went for a walk on the frozen lake and met many water birds and lots of quiet.

  • 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.
