Wannsee House is free to visit yet exceptionally informative and notable as a place of historic significance. The Final Solution was devised here and the story of how the Holocaust came to pass is well told and important for us all to learn from. There is a lovely view over Wannsee lake from the gardens as well. Just an hour... More

Juxtaposed on the beautiful Wannsee lake, the Wannsee Conference villa served as the meeting place in 1942 for one of history’s most evil decisions – the “Final Solution. Today it is a memorial that serves as a rich study center: the Nazis notoriously documented everything. Just reading the biographies of the 15 "educated" decision makers is shocking. They justify uprooting... More

Beautiful house, gardens and walks along Lake Wannase. A very chilling reminder of the role this meeting played in the mass genocide of the Jewish populations of Europe. Visit if at all interested in WWII history.

A must do, for the historical value of the this black page in man's history and the detailed information on the 'protocols' of the holocaust. It gives the technocratic execution a face and a name. Can be easiliy reached by S-Bahn from the city and a 10 minute bus ride with the 114 or a 30 minute walk.Free entrance.

About a 45 minute train ride from Mitte of Berlin, the site of the infamous Wannsee Conference in 1942 in which 15 high level Nazi leaders discussed the "Final Solution." It is now a memorial, museum, and learning center. It is also where the HBO/BBC film "Conspiracy" was filmed about this very meeting. Interesting that such an atrocious meeting could... More

We visited the house after our visit to Potsdam. We got off the train, crossed the street and took bus # 114 there and back (from the same bus station you arrived at). The house is set in the most beautiful, tranquil surroundings, which provide a sharp contrast to the content of the monstrous conference that took place there. There... More

This house is a must visit even if it is out of the way. Travel on the S Bahn to Wansee and take the 114 bus to Heckeshorn. You will see the villa where evil minds collaborated to end Jewish existence in Eastern Europe. The contrast between the beautiful surroundings of affluent Wansee and the putrid , sordid and criminal... More

This house contains the history of the conference itself as well as histories of the participants, of the nazi regime, of the persecutions and the persecuted and of resistance. There is a lot of information on the subjects; texts, pictures and posters. It made a profound impression, and it is well worth the trip. Unlike some contributors we did not... More
