Liebermann-Villa am Wannsee

Liebermann-Villa am Wannsee is really 3 attractions all wrapped in one. Here you can enjoy the architecture of the beautiful lakeside villa, explore it's lovely gardens and experience the museum and gallery inside.

This villa was the home of Max Liebermann (1847-1935), an internationally renowned impressionist painter who served as President of the Prussian Academy of Arts from 1920 until 1932. Like most other Jewish owned properties, Lievermann's villa was taken by the Nazis in 1933. So was his respected position as President of the Prussian Academy of Arts.

Max Libermann's house and surrounding gardens became the subject of 100s of his paintings.

The villa has been beautifully restored and maintained to preserve this interesting piece of history.

When visiting the Villa you can view Liebermann's domestic quarters, his art studio and his picturesque garden. About 40 of his original paintings hang on the walls.

You can also enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a light snack on the lovely terrace that looks over the lake.

There is a nominal entry fee which helps cover the costs of preserving this beautiful property.

House of the Wannsee Conference is a short 5 minute walk north along Am Grossen Wannsee from Liebermann-Villa am Wannsee. Since they are so close to each other and quite a distance from central Berlin we recommended visiting both in one outing.

Liebermann-Villa am Wannsee Reviews

Rated 4.6 out of 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating Went here with my bookclub to learn more about Liebermann and the women in his life. I was impressed that almost everything is in dual languages. The house is spectacular and views onto the lake and gardens are gorgeous. The cafe is also very nice! Overall would have liked more info but guess next time I should do an guided tour instead (on enquired these are only available in German).

5 Star Rating The existence of this place in its present form is a victory. We left feeling that the souls of the family had returned to their rightful place after years of horrendous prosecution and later just neglect. It is a wonderful place, calm, serene, inspiring, thought provoking and in the end uplifting.

4 Star Rating I really like the pictures of Liebermann and the exhibition was very interesting. However, I would not say that the place is quiet and peaceful, as I read in other reviews. I was there on a weekday in July and the garden, the museum as well as terrace were full of people. Still the place itself is beautiful indeed.

5 Star Rating We enjoyed the ultimate luxury and privilege, to visit the "Liebermann Villa" on a nice January day, literally having the place - garden and villa - for ourselves for the longest part of a 2-hour visit!

5 Star Rating Very peaceful place by the lake, gardens are really nice. Some iconic artworks are displayed with original mails from Liebermann and a great deal of explanation. Audioguide is on the phone so bring your headset. There is a cafe to buy drinks and enjoy them on the terraza or in the garden, be careful to visit the house itself when it's not too crowded. It's worth the one hour trip from Berlin.
