Gönül Yerli, Deputy Director of the Penzberg Islamic Forum

Since autumn 2005, the city of Penzberg has enjoyed an unusual new mosque designed by Alen Jasarevic situated directly on the city’s main thoroughfare. Although mosque construction continues to incite discussion, debate and even criticism in many urban centres, Penzberg’s mosque is widely celebrated.

Ms. Gönül Yerli will provide participants with a tour of the mosque focusing on the building’s modern architectural features. The tour will be followed by refreshments and participants will engage in a discussion regarding Muslim life in the Oberland region and general issues surrounding the process of cultural integration.

We will meet at platform 27 of Munich Central Station at 9:15 am, train to Penzberg.
