Berlin Travel Tip:
Berlin Mosque (German: Berliner Moschee, Wilmersdorfer Moschee, Ahmadiyya Moschee) in Berlin is Germany's oldest mosque in use, situated on Brienner Straße 7-8 in Berlin-Wilmersdorf. It was designed by K. A. Hermann and was built between 1923 and 1925. Berlin Mosque, which has two 90 feet (27 m) tall minarets, was heavily damaged in World War II. The two minarets were rebuilt in 1999/2001. The foundation stone was laid on 6 August 1923 and the mosque was inaugurated officially on 26 April 1925.
The mosque is owned and maintained by the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement (Ahmadiyya Anjuman Isha'at-i-Islam Lahore).
Imam Maulana Sadr-ud-Din worked as first missionary of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement in Berlin since 1922. At the mosque, he prepared the first bilingual Arabic-German edition of the Qur'an with extensive footnotes; this translation, which was finally published in 1939, was the first German Qur'an translation written by a Muslim.
The mosque was closed for some time in 2007 due to lack of money and personnel. However, it is now open again. The Friday Prayer (Salat al-Jumuʿah) is held every Friday at 1:15 p.m.
