The Wannsee House is a pleasant villa in the southwestern Berlin suburb of Wannsee (very easy and quick to reach by S-bahn train and then the bus) where a dozen or so Nazi officials gathered for 90 minutes in January 1942 and almost casually launched...More

I mean, the drive here alongside some massive old german historic buildings and old houses was very nice, also the outside appearance of the wannsee building. But actually going in was a big disappointment. Of course the story told is important, but to be honest,...More

Visiting concentration camps is one thing to get an idea of the Holocaust. There you experience rather the suffering of the individuals. In the Haus of the Wannsee Conference you see that this didn't just happen. Everything was planned and documented all the way to...More

The Wannsee is a beautiful part of Berlin and you can understand how it became such a sought after area to reside by the affluent and well heeled. Indeed, before being surreptitiously purchased by the RSHA, the villa at 56-58 Greater Wannsee was the property...More

As others have explained an AB ticket and 40-60 minutes on the S1 line will get you from the centre of Berlin to Wannsee. This lovely town on the edge of two lakes is only a short distance closer to the Capital from Potsdam but...More

Apart from the visit giving a chance to see outside of central Berlin, it is a remarkable historic monument. Events and personalities involved around the 'final solution' are well documented, and well displayed. Congratulations to the organisers.

I read about this place in a book about the SS, but to come here and listen to the guide, was absolutely amazing. Situated beside a lake, this must have been a very impressive place. Well worth the visit for the second world war scholar.
