We didn't really know too much about the house (i'm ashamed to say - being very interested in the war I actually knew very little about the events that occurred here...) and we were advised to visit by a friend from home. The place itself is absolutely beautiful and set in a leafy suburban street. this adds to the surrealness... More

This house gives a chilling insight into the cold and calculating manner in which the nazis planned the extermination of six million Jews in 1942. It pulls no punches and the displays are excellent. Plan to send a minimum of two hours there.

This mansion, where in 1942 the Nazis decided on the Final Solution (extermination) of world Jewry is today a very fine documentation center of all that the Nazis did to first harass, then imprison, and then finally to exterminate the Jews.

It is a horrifying experience. The contradiction between the beautiful setting of the lake and the horrible content of the discussions held there in a very businesslike manner is appalling

An HBO BBC historical drama called Conspiracy (2001) tells the story of the Wannsee Conference outside Berlin. Actually visiting the preserved house and Holocaust memorial was a somber and solemn experience. It's hard to imagine that such meetings actually happened and I think standing in the house, in the rooms, on the shore at the Wannsee house is hard to... More

Must visit place if WW2 history is your interest. Visiting with a tour guide is my best advice so you know what to look for.

IT is a very important sight. It goes through all the horrible things that occurred in Europe, specifically the jews, under the Nazi regime. I thought it should focus more on the conference but it is still very informative.

This is an important museum in understanding the Nazi's decision making process in determining what they called the "final solution to the Jewish question". It is well played out with great documentation to support the events of the 2 hour meeting at Wansee House January 20th, 1941.

This mansion is located in the outskirts of Berlin, overlooking a beautiful lake. On arrival, when you realise that in this place a goup of Nazi officials met in 1942 to agree in the way the "Final Solution" was going to be carried out, feelings of deep sadness and outrage invade oneself. This mansion is nowdays a memorial with an... More
