Schwetzingen Mosque - Germany

 

Germany’s first mosque which is found in the gardens of Schwetzingen Castle. Designed and built in 1780 by French architect Nicolas de Pigage (1723-1796), it is the largest oriental-style building in a German-speaking country.

Built from 1779 to 1796, Schwetzingen Mosque is the only 18th century garden mosque still in existence in Europe. It is a real highlight, set within the Turkish Gardens, in one of the last areas of the beautifully landscaped castle grounds to be completed;
