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.

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.

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.

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.

Nice museum to re-live the impressions of Liebermann's world. Not too much to be seen inside the museum, but certainly worth a visit to experience the Wannsee atmosphere. The garden feels almost Russian with all the lovely birch trees. People sitting on the grass or on benches, looking out to sail boats. Very impressionistic :-)

Overall a good experience. The gardens are very well kept. The lady at the front desk kindly lent me a coin for the lockers (these are mandatory). However, once inside, I was immediately sent back to the lockers by the museum guard: “keine Jacke”. I get that they don’t want you to wear or carry a bulky winter coat near the paintings, but I was just wearing a silk sweater with a zipper. Feels a bit silly that anything deemed ‘jacket’ by the guard has to be taken off, even though it was chilly inside.
