This is the site where the extermination of the Jews was planned -- right here, over drinks, in this beautiful house, in a very "civilized" way. The museum documents this all, with extraordinary detail. And, yes, the fact that it's so lush and beautiful is part of the horror of it all. Vivid and important.

Museum is excellent with very extensive information. The house exterior seems unaltered and is quite beautiful. The gardens are wonderful and enable you to sit and look out at the lake. Next to the house is a little marina which is also nice and relaxing. Great place to visit when in Berlin.

Carefully planned, moving through the designated areas of the house you will be brought through time and see how the discrimination against other races, namely the Jews, slowly evolved as the years passed. From the Medieval Era till the Nazi Era, it is clear and highly descriptive. My tour guide was incredibly friendly, very fluent in multiple languages and was... More

Amazing history of the planning for the "Final Solution to the Jewish Question" in a beautiful villa on an idyllic lakeside location. Indepth, factual presentation of the Nazi's antisemetic program leading up to the final solution. Easy to reach by S-bahn and bus from central Berlin.

If you are interested in the place where Stalin, Churchill and Rooseveldt did there talkings after the war, this is the place to visit. The seatings where the famous picture was taken is well indicated. The place is in the other direction of the Potsdam Gardens. If you have the time, it is worthwhile to visit.

There are a few ways to get to this museum but my advice is to get off the S-Bahn a stop early and walk through the neighbourhoods. Very beautiful houses you might be surprised what you see! The museum itself is excellent. Having to ring the bell to get in and out was a tad bit cumbersome but I'm sure... More

After visiting several museums dedicated to the Nazis and the Holocaust, I am glad we took the time to go to the Wannsee-Konferenz. The presentation is excellent and we were lucky enough to hear one of the guides from the museum bring to life the enormity of the Nazi campaign of terror.

A very nice place to visit if you are in Berlin. The guide was very knowledgeable and I learnt a lot about the isolation of the Jews from the society and about the Final Solution. The scenery from here is excellent especially the view of the lake. You should take around 1 hour here if you want to explore the... More

Prior to our visit to Wannsee we had visited Auschwitz and Krakow and therefore 'seen' the impact of the decisions made at this 'Konferenz'. This made the visit very chilling. There is a lot of very good information about the holocaust on display and you see the documents relating to the conference itself. The grounds of the house are lovely... More

Haunted place of where the Final Solution was written, must see for any history buff. Very depressing place but wonderfully perserved, Germany does a great job at showing the horrors of the Nazi and Stasi regimes
