As Max Liebermann’s niece, a close friend of his daughter Käthe and godmother of his granddaughter Maria, Ring was a regular guest in Liebermann’s summer house on Lake Wannsee. It’s high time to welcome her back.

The Villa

Around 1900, a trend for country houses became noticeable among Berlin’s upper middle classes. In July 1909, the painter Max Liebermann (1847-1935) acquired one of the last waterfront properties in the Alsen villa colony on Lake Wannsee – two plots of land at Große Seestraße 24 (today Colomierstraße 3). There he created a summer retreat for his family away from their main residence in the heart of Berlin.

The Garden

A central component of the Liebermann Villa is the historical garden, designed according to Liebermann’s own wishes. The garden became a important motif for Liebermann’s late work and today attracts over 80,000 visitors a year.
