An Ikea store near Frankfurt in west Germany handed over its car park to a local mosque for socially-distanced mass prayers and won praise online.
Around 800 Muslims prayed in the large outdoor space to mark the end of the holy month of Ramadan on Sunday.
“The closing prayer with all Muslims in Wetzlar was like a reward for us,” a mosque chairman told BBC News.
Places of worship have reopened in Germany but they must follow rules to curb the spread of coronavirus.
Pictures of the Eid prayer posted on social media have been widely shared, with many complimenting the mosque for finding a safe way for the community to pray together.
