There is a sizeable Muslim community in Munich, which means that there are a couple of mosques in the city. The Sendling borough of Munich and the neighborhood of Ludwigsvorstadt both have a few mosques. Muslims visiting the park can therefore either ask to be guided to one of these prayer facilities, or they could find a quiet space in the park to offer their prayers.
There are several Halal restaurants in the city of Munich. These establishments are known to serve a wide selection of Indian, Pakistani, Turkish and Afghan cuisine. Muslim tourists will be able to locate these Halal restaurants without much of a problem as most eateries that are Halal sport Halal signs on their windows.
