Islamic Culture Center
First Constructed Mosque in Frankfurt CityHeilbronnerstraße
22– 60327 Frankfurt am Main
The planned location of the new Mosque for the Moroccan
Culture Center is situated in the heart of Frankfurt very
close to Frankfurts main railway station. Also the mosque
is not so far from the main shopping centre of Frankfurt.
Prayer facilities are made for men as well as for women.
Seminar facilities are included, with a planned Islamic
Library. Books explaining about Islam in the native language
of german play an important role in such a Library. Shop
facilities are also include to cater for the local muslim
needs, like halal food for example. The Exhibition hall
/ Youth Center, has access to a small garden and is independent
from the main building by a seperate entrance from the inner
courtyard. A large oriental garden with water fountains
give the opportunuty to relax and meditate. The two stairways
are built as two Minaretts flanked either side of the Mosques
main Dome giving it that Islamic tone in a city environment.
This makes the Mosque blend in nicely, complimenting the
neighbouring buildings. The long thin window slots show
the first and second floors where the prayer place of the
Mosque is located. The large and wide front staired entrance
of the Mosque gives that inviting atmosphere to the main
building. This also guarantees an easy flow of people at
Exhibition times and of course at the high point of the
week which is the gathering of muslims at Friday prayer.
