New Mosque will open tomorrow in Kreuzberg

After several years of construction the Omar-Ibn-Al-Khattar Mosque right at the Görlitzer Bahnhof will open on Friday May 21st here in Berlin-Kreuzberg. The new Mosque allows about 1000 people to pray. The Mosque is part of the new Maschari Center which also houses offices and seminar spaces. The Mosque looks very modern and one could fight about its beauty. For the longest time it looked like the Mosque would never be finished but now it is and it can be considered part of Kreuzbergs colorful fabric of society. I use to pass by this unfinished building on my bike on my way from our holiday rental "berlin19" when ever I need to go to our local food coop called LPG.
