Originally the Wannsee terraces were built in 1937 as a picnic area. The property was later destroyed by a fire and has been rebuilded 1953. Over the following years it was repeatedly renovated and expanded.
Till 2001 the building stayed essentially unchanged, when a fire burnt it to the ground. Subsequently the property was completely dismantled and cleared out. This was the beginning of the new Wannsee Terraces.
