Cologne Central Mosque

We had a wonderful and warm welcome when we visited the Cologne Central Mosque. We were given a quick tour of the building and an explanation of the history of the mosque. Afterwards we were invited to stay for the afternoon prayers. This was a super cool cultural experience in an absolutely gorgeous mosque.
