How to find us

The fastest way to get here is to take a “Regional Express” or “S-Bahn” train to Wannsee station. The S-Bahn lines “S1” and “S7” connect the centre of Berlin with Wannsee. From Wannsee S-Bahn station, take bus 114 in the direction of “Heckeshorn” to the stop “Liebermann-Villa” (5-minute ride).
From Wannsee S-Bahn station walk down the hill and turn right along Königstraße for about 10 minutes, with the large Wannsee Lake on your right. After the Wannsee bridge take a right down the street “Am Großen Wannsee”. Follow the street downhill along the lake until you reach the Liebermann-Villa.
Leave the “Avus” Motorway (A 115) at Kreuz Zehlendorf and follow the Potsdamer Chaussee in the direction of Wannsee. Potsdamer Chaussee becomes Königsstraße after the railway bridge. Follow the road and turn right into the street “Am Großen Wannsee” after the Wannsee bridge. Follow the street until you reach the Liebermann Villa.
