Frankfurt Airport opens new Muslim prayer room in Terminal 2

0a1a-17

Passengers, employees and visitors of the Muslim faith now have another place to pray and worship at Frankfurt Airport. Today (February 1), a new Muslim prayer room has opened in the public area of Terminal 2.

The multi-functional space has a foyer with a storage facility for shoes and coats. The prayer room itself is at the rear and constitutes a quiet area for Muslim prayer. A curtain divides the space in two so that men and women can pray separately. In the entrance area, separate washrooms for men and women are available for ritual washing.

Located in the public area of Terminal 2’s Concourse E (Level 2), the new Muslim prayer room is open daily from 5 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday prayers are held here every Friday at the time stated in the Muslim prayer calendar.

Fraport, the operator of Frankfurt Airport (FRA), has created several places of worship and retreat for Christians, Jews and Muslims across FRA’s two terminals. A total of ten chapels and prayer rooms provide space for religious diversity, dialog and peaceful coexistence among the world’s religions at the FRA global aviation hub.
