Liebermann-Villa am Wannsee information
This lovely villa was the summer home of Berlin Secession founder Max Liebermann from 1909 until his death in 1935. Liebermann loved the lyricism of nature and often painted the gardens as seen through the window of his barrel-vaulted upstairs studio. A selection of these works is on permanent display.
The beautifully restored gardens consist of three hedge gardens shaped like a circle, a square and an oval and flanked by beech trees. Drink in the glorious views over coffee and cake from the terrace of the villa’s Wannsee-facing Cafe Max. Bus 114 makes the trip to the villa several times hourly from the S-Bahn station Wannsee.
