Pforzheim — Gateway To The Black Forest

When you visit Pforzheim you’ll see gold, jewelry and watches all over the place. Because of this it’s also called the Golden City. (You may want to start your city journey at the Jewelry Museum — make sense, huh?)

Being an urban district in the state of Baden-W├╝rttemberg, it bore the brunt of the vicious World War II and was bombed a number of times during that period.

Notwithstanding its thorny past, this city has much to offer with its exceptional amalgamation of gold, high technology and design.

Wallberg hill is well-liked not only by locals even people from the far-off places come to see it. Its dazzling views over the city coupled with the romantic atmosphere, make it a heaven for travelers, especially at night.

Reuchlinhaus Arts Center, situated in Pforzheim’s municipal park, is an exceptional sort of cultural forum. Created somewhere in the mid-20th century, it is first and foremost a memorial to the city’s most celebrated and significant son, the humanist Johannes Reuchlin.

The protestant fortress and idealistic church of St. Michael, situated well on top of the city center, is city’s most significant architectural testimonial. The church almost took the shape of the last resting position of the protestant line of the Margraves of Baden from 1535 onwards.

From April to October in the Alpine Garden, you can witness over 100,000 plants from around the world. During that time of the year, gardens are at their most gorgeous look with lots of flowering around.

And if you’re love animals, then the Pforzheim Wildlife Park, on the southern outskirts of the city, must be on your itinirary since it’s well-loved by the kids and open all year round. There, you can see a variety of animals together with some very rare mammals and birds. :-)

Relaxation and watching other people? Head over to the Enzauen Park. It is an extremely admired leisure area where you can get pleasure from a wide range of leisure and sporting activities.
