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

What can I say? There is lots of information to absorb and most of it is unpleasant. It is well worth a visit, from a dispassionate point of view it is interesting but also humbling. Don't expect anything else as it is where the nazis discussed the final solution!

We visited this and a number of other significant sites of historical interest relating to WWII with my son who is presently studying WWII and Cold War periods at school. The information outlined in the museum is excellent and detailed (extract from meeting minutes particularly poignant) This museum was of particular benefit in getting an understanding of a number of...

We stopped at Villa Wannsee before we drove to our hotel in Berlin (later this road trip visited Auschwitz and Krakau Ghetto). When we walked over the cobble stones to the entrance, thinking of which SS b*stards walked that same path a few years ago, we got chills all over our bodies. We heard about his place from family members... More

We visited on our first afternoon in a wintry Berlin. Although I thought I knew a lot about the holocaust the exhibition had a lot of details I had not appreciated fully before. It is sobering in particular to stand in the dining room where the meeting to iron out the details of how to coordinate the holocaust took place.... More

Took S -bahn to wannsee. then bus to museum. Shocking and overwhelming experience. Such a placid quiet countryside resort which housed such a horrific gathering. The villa displays documentation of the nazis final solution. As you walk through the rooms, one cant avoid the question : how did this happen?

This House/Mansion was the meeting place for 15 of Hitler and the SS's top Generals. Here they planned the Genocide of the European Jews during the second World War. It maps out the beginning of the transportation of millions of Jews and ethnic minorities seen as a threat to Germany. There are individual stories along with the stories of families... More

Important place to visit. Does a good job on telling you the story of the development of the so called final solution, the "Endloesung". But it really tells a whole lot. It is rather academic, but in a place like this, the German approach is based on sticking to facts, and facts only, as much as possible. So, definitely go... More
