A scary place

An eerie place to visit, the place where the industrialised murder of millions was planned, a very chilling place.

I visited this house as part of a school trip to Berlin. We arrived in the morning when it wasn't very busy and we were given a very brief introduction by one of the staff, but even this short speech was incredibly emotional and informative. All of the parts of the house are covered in information, which may be annoying... More

This was called by US Command Berlin the Wansee Recreation Center, however for historical purpose it was the Conference Center. A very beauty building inside with nice art works. During the Cold War this building was used by the US Forces stationed in Berlin as a recreation area as it is roght on the Wansee Lake. The US Forces Yacht... More

Haus der Wannsee Konferenz is a mini-palace/manor-house kind of building from the beginning of the 20th century. It used to be a luxurious house on the outskirts of Berlin, which was later acquired by the nazis and used for their meetings. The most notorious of those meetings was the Wannsee Konferenz, during which they decided to exterminate the world population... More

This place is important to visit for anyone interested in the holocaust and the history surrounding it. It's a free museum, quite small but quite informative. It's hard to imagine how a group of people decided upon murdering millions of people in this beautiful quiet place. It gives the place a whole different atmosphere when you think about it. The...

I had wanted to visit this place for decades. This is where 15 men had decided, on Jan. 20 1942, to murder my father's entire family. The place is situated right on the beautiful Wansee lake, which can be seen through the windows of the conference room where they devised the "final solution to the Jewish Problem". It is full...

I'm someone who has a huge interest in WW2 - I have visited many places of significant interest relating to particular events during the war. I was very keen to take some time out of our visit to Berlin and visit this house where such a chilling meeting had taken place to discuss the deportation and murder of millions of... More

I have been to a few museums regarding the Holocaust but this one left me feeling the evil oozing out of the walls. It was hard to imagine 15 people discussing the logistics of deportation and mass murder over a ninety minute period then having lunch. A very beautiful estate that contradicts itself by the evil taken place. In my... More

Extremely thought provoking to think what went on in this building seventy odd yea s ago. It is situated in a quiet suburb of villas - what did the local residents think ??

This is a must see in the world. Having been to Auschwitz, and witnessed what happened and then to travel to a wonderful part of Berlin to this beautiful piece of architecture where it all began is.... well ... words fail me. The history of what we all know about is well documented and the displays are very informative, but... More
