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

The Wannsee Conference house, as well as the idyllic sourroundings, is worth visitng if you like beautiful architechture. It gives a view into the a bygone period of prosperity and obulence for the German noveu rich. The park also deserves a stroll, offering idyllic views of the lake. The reason why people visit the place, is rather of a different... 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

Outstanding through its historical importance, it's a piece that no history fan should skip. Interesting exhibition items and a lovely surrounding. Easy access.

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

I know the headline is harsh, but if you a have been around and know your third reich history - I feel that this is a bit of a waist of time. Sorry to say this, but I feel that the house do not tell the story straight. It is to much of a "study" centre.

This is an interesting place to visit for those who would like to know more about how the Holocaust happened. However it is not so easy to get there on public transport and some of the staff are incredibly unfriendly, bordering on rude. To be honest I wouldn't make a special trip out there. There is too much of interest... More

As you walk up to this house you admire the beauty of it, as you walk in you suddenly remember the uglyness of the history behind it. Seeing the documents and papers of the horrible meeting that decided the fate of the thousands of jews killed in ww2 was very hard to see and to know you are walking where... More
