Embedded in the Black Forest, surrounded by Kraichgau and Stromberg there is Pforzheim, the Golden City, the center of the German jewelery and watch industry. The upper center of the Northern Black Forest region is the ideal starting point for the Black Forest vacationer. Hikers start here, for over 100 years, to the high altitude trails (West, East and Middle) through the Black Forest.
Experience the "Goldstadt" on a city tour, in the jewelry museum, on the goldsmith's mile or during a visit to one of our numerous museums. In addition, a program of events lures all year round.
