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.
