Prayer Facilities

Due to the sizeable Muslim community in the city of Graz, there are quite a few mosques and Islamic Centres. Some of the prominent mosques in the city include Al Nur Mosque, the Islamic Center of Graz, Mevlana Camii Moschee and Islamischer Glaubensverein Taqwa. Muslims visiting the Eggenberg Palace can therefore ask to be directed to the nearest prayer facility when needed, as the attraction does not have a prayer room.  

Halal Food

Eggenberg Palace is not known to house a café, but visitors can take along a picnic and enjoy it in the garden. There are however plenty of restaurants in the surrounding area. Muslim tourists will be able to find a number of Halal restaurants in the city, most of which are Turkish.
