This museum gives you a history of the Jewish people whether good or bad. It was very interesting and yet it is also very sad to see this is the place where the Nazis made the decision to start exterminating the Jews at the camps. Definitely go with the guided tour! Also, the Wannsee Lake was the separation between East/West... More

We had an amazing guide at this beautiful house. The tour was similar to a university lecture, but provided lots of information and history on the house and the history of Germany. Grounds to the house are well kept.

Hugely significant site of overwhelming importance. If anyone at Wansee reads these reviews then can I ask that some way is found to deal with the school group visits. It is inconsiderate to allow large school parties to dominate the key exhibit space for so long. Take school groups in and show them the documentation/minutes and then take them to... More

......as it was dubbed. Here the upper echelon of the Nazi hierachy "starring" Heydrich and Eichmann came up with the groundwork to what eventually became The Holocaust".

What made my visit here so phenomenal is the guide we had who took us around the villa and taught us of what went on there. She was incredible! She was not a guide who drones on as though they've learnt their speech like a robot. She brought emotion and questions into her lesson, and what she said was extremely... More

I took the metro and then bus to here. It's easy from Potsdamer Platz and routes are available online. The house is on a lake and one of many villas in this suburb of Berlin. The house and grounds are beautiful. Yet, plans were made here to exterminate European Jews. A strong reminder that there is evil even among beauty.

One of the most interesting visits in the city. It does take a bit of effort to get out to Wannsee (check which buses you need before you go out on the train) but the displays are first rate, informative, and with a really good balance of fact and interpretation. I'm so pleased I went

A very long walk, but definitely worth visiting if you are interested in history. Walking took about 40 min. And we used about 1,5 hours for the visit.

This was a very chilling but interesting place. It is the place that nazis met to approve the "final" solution. It's really right that the place is now a museum. We went on a cold but sunny day so had a good walk along the lake before we visited. Very informative and well worth the trip to wanna sea. We... More
