Ramadan in Zurich

Can anyone suggest a mosque with good facilities and arrangements for this month ?
A Sunni mosque would be great, preferably with Iftaar (breaking of fast).

Any recommendations on where to eat during this month would also make life easier.

I know there is a Turkish on Josephstrasse which is ok,
but this could be very busy during Ramadan.
There's also a lebanese restaurant not far from Josephstrasse which I'm happy with.

Any other establishments which can be relied on during this month ?

thanks

There is a mosque behind HB, 16 Ausstellungsstrasse, Zurich, ZH, Schweiz. It provides food for Iftar.

Hi - would you be so kind as to give me the name/address of the Lebanese restaurant near Josefstrasse? Is it reasonably priced?

Is that limited to this one or all mosques in Switzerland?

If it's limited to this one I don't know (I fear it isn't), but there are definitely enough mosques and communities that are on this side of reason.

Yes, very reasonable compared to other places in Zurich.

Below is a link to the Lebanese restaurant:

Hafnerstrasse 13 (Zurich)
(Its very close to Hotel Montana by the main station)

Nonsense.

Frank, if you took some time to verify this, you too would realise how nonsensical this is, but you havn't.

Re: Ramadan in Zurich

Every Ramadan, I am reminded of my basic military service, which I did with many muslim servicemen during this season. Without food or water from sunrise to sundown, some made it through the course, while some had to fall out. But all of them did give it a go, in 34 degree tropical heat. Much respect! Good luck for the remaining fast!

Re: Ramadan in Zurich

having worked in dubai for two years, i felt it was easier then one might think and it made for a great experience to break the fast with my coworkers at one of the many iftar tents...

ramadan kareem to everyone!
