While Muslims visiting the Pergamon Museum will not be able to find prayer facilities within its premises, the city of Berlin is home to over 70 mosques and prayer facilities. The Berlin Mosque is one of the most prominent mosques in the city and is the oldest mosque in the country. Muslim visitors to the Pergamon Museum could therefore ask the museum staff for directions to the nearest mosque when needed.
The Pergamon Museum is known to house a café. However, this café is currently closed due to construction works at the museum. Muslim visitors could therefore dine at one of the several Halal restaurants found in the city of Berlin. They should also be able to locate several of these establishments close to the mosques in the city.
