The Max-Liebermann-Company bought the house in 2002. Telling the history of a brilliant jewish impressionistic painter. Liebermann died in 1935 and his wife owned the estate until she committed suicide in 1942. Although the house has a very different history (serving as a hospital for a period of time) it has been refurbished by the MLCo. This is certainly one... More

Friends in Potsdam took us here to see the gardens and enjoy the art. The second floor of the house is a small gallery with some beautiful works. Not crowded and you get to view the pieces in rooms where they might have been painted. Very intimate. The gardens are mostly restored - the lakefront still has holdover piers and... More

This was a must see for all art lovers. The gardens and the house are enchanting. We had arranged an English speaking guide who very informative really making the whole experience. Would recommend the restaurant for lunch, good home cooked food, and if the weather is warm the view from the terrace over the river is very pleasant .

It's a special treat to visit the house that an artist built for himself to live in. Liebermann's villa on the Wannsee is no exception. He put a lot of thought into both the garden and house the result tranquil whether inside it's walls or sitting on one of the many benches at the vantage points he created or drinking... More

I have visited the house and the standing exhibition previously. The house has an interesting although sad story. It is elegant in a beautiful setting with gardens and tree path down to the lake. Max Liebermann’s paintings of the house the garden and his family are beautiful. The temporary exhibition was of female artists from the last century was disappointing... More

It's a long drive from Berlin Mitte to this museum and there is nothing else to visit in the neighborhood (besides that the Taxi driver had a hard time finding it). The front garden is very well maintained and reminds of the Lieberman paintings. The villa itself is not impressive, but the art collection is nice and representative. Long line... More

Perhaps a little expensive for what it is (6 Euros). The collection of art is small and the gardens pleasant but not overly impressive. It is certainly pleasant to go and sit on the lakeside at the end of the garden to imagine what is was like to enjoy in its heyday. I think there is an element about pilgrimage... More

We went in here by mistake thinking it was the Wannsee Villa Konferenz (Place where final solution was signed) but it wasnt and we paid 6 euro in. Even if we had liked art it was tiny and not worth going in!

You can view Max Liebermann's paintings of his garden and family in his lakeside villa overlooking Wannsee. The villa has been sensitively restorded and offers an insight into Liebermann's life and inspiration. Walk round the pretty garden to the lake shore - enjoy coffee and cake on the veranda or inside the small cafe which looks out onto the garden.... More
