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

I missed this place last time I visited Berlin. This time I found the time to drive by. The house is filled with interesting history about the meeting and the house itself. The countryside here is also fantastic.

I have no wish to upset anone with the title and I fully accept that it was the "minority" within the German military who made the decision to execute the "final solution". The building, and its displays, are simple but tell the story well. I read that some people "deny" The Holocaust. Who are these people? Which planet are they... More

This place is important to visit, It describe the evil of the Nazi leadership. For me it's difficult to understand how some groups of people nowadays in the world can deny the holocaust in the German extermination camps. If they are insecure about the holocaust, they should visit this place. This is definitely a must see in Berlin!
