“A lovely setting for an infamous Conference”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

We were there on a very cold, snowy February day - I imagine much like the day in January 1942 when Heydrich met with other officers to take the decision about the "final solution on the question of the Jews".
The house is a place of remembrance and shows the story of the Holocaust with some very explicit papers and photographs and there is something a little disturbing looking out from the conference room onto the lake and thinking that Heydrich, Eichmann and others would have seen the same view whilst debating the conference's subject.

“Incredible Exhibit”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

This exhibit is very detailed, you do not need a guide if you understand English, although I imagine a guided tour would have improved our visit.
Even if you are visiting many museums and memorials related to the Holocaust, I would still say this is a must-see

“Get a true feel for history”
Reviewed January 25, 2013

There was something very special visiting here, even though you may be very familiar with the history of the Third Reich and the holocaust. I have been to multiple WW 2 locations, exhibits, and museums but to read the notes from this rather short meeting involving only a dozen or so invitees in the room where it occurred is just gut wrenching. I had never seen the invitations to the conference sent by Heydrich , but to read them is to get a feel for the inhuman horror of these people,so callously planning the extermination of 10 million other persons but enjoying the "complimentary breakfast served" at the same time, just leaves you awestruck. Easy to reach from Berlin byS1 or 7 to Wannsee station in ZoneB then the Bus114 ,which makes a circular route, I felt it was certainly worth the effort. Go there,take your time perusing the displays . Expect to leave a different person than when you arrived.
