The Mosque at Schwetzingen Castle in Baden-Wurtemberg, Germany ~ Schwetzingen Castle, (built in "Turkish style") from 1779-1791 by a French architect for the Prince Elector of the Palatinate). It was never intended for religious services but rather because the people of that century were fascinated with everything oriental, especially with Turkey. It is open to the public.
