Liebermann Villa

In 1909, Max Liebermann had a summer residence built on Lake Wannsee, which he proudly called his “lakeside palace”. It was here, away from the commotion of city life, that he found much-needed tranquility and the principal subject matter for his late work. Paintings, pastels and prints by the artist are exhibited on the upper level. The works created in Wannsee take centre stage: pictures of the flower terrace, the perennial garden, the birch grove and the great lawn leading down to the lake. The permanent exhibition gives visitors the unique opportunity to experience Liebermann’s works at the site of their creation, in direct proximity to the scenes they depict. Visitors need only glance out of the window to experience for themselves the floral splendour that inspired the artist. On the ground floor, an exhibition and multimedia unit document the life of Max Liebermann and his family, and the villa’s chequered history.
