It's a charming old mansion in a well-to-do Berlin suburb with a monstrous history. This was where the plans were laid out for the extermination of European Jews. The building is now a documentation centre. There is no admission fee to enter, but donations are warmly received. The house has a very history, but one that should never be forgotten.

We went to Wannsee to visit the Liebermann house but stopped here afterward. The exhibits are very informative about the history of the Nazi effort to eradicate the Jewish population. I have been to many sights that try to explain the Nazi era and I found this one to be among the very best.

Altough a bit out of berlin a must see place. On the lake side in a quiet neighborhood the nazis planned to wipe out the jews of europe. The contrast between the calm and peaceful place and the horrors that were planned here. Must see.

Although the Villa is a little way out of Berlin Centre, it is well worth a visit if you are interested in German history and the history of the Holocaust. The Villa was purchased by the SS in the 1930's and used as a training centre. It's situated in a very well-to-do district with a garden which borders the lake... More

From S -bahnhof Wannsee take the 114 bus to the Haus der Wannsee Konferenz. Just before this bus stop is the stop for the Villa Liebermann which is altogether a more positive and joyous visit (though not without a sense of tragedy too). I had read about the Conference house before my visit and had seen the film starring Kenneth... More

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.
