Omar Ibn Al-Khattab-Moschee
The mosque, which can hold around 1, 000 people, is part of a complex that media reports said cost around 10 million euros (12.5 million dollars) to build and was entirely financed by private Lebanese and Palestinian donors.
The mosque is topped by a glass dome and four small minarets, and is part of a six-storey, 5,000-square-metre building that includes commercial and social centres and a library.
Germany’s largest mosque can accommodate 2, 500 people and is in the city of Mannheim in the west of the country.
The construction of mosques in Germany has prompted debate — as it has in other European countries — notably among the extreme right.
