Black Forest, Baden-Wuerttemberg
By decree, Margrave Karl Friedrich von Baden laid the foundation stone over 250 years ago: Since then, gold, jewellery and watch manufactories have turned Pforzheim into a world-famous jewellery and watch metropolis.
Brilliantly beautiful insights are provided by two exciting museums. The jewellery museum is located in the Reuchlinhaus, which itself is known as a piece of jewellery thanks to its unique architecture. About 2.000 exhibits present jewellery art from antiquity to the present day. In the Technical Museum, former employees of the jewellery industry show production processes on original machines. Inspired by so much beauty, the Schmuckwelten, Europe's largest jewellery and watch house, offers a varied shopping experience.
However, this is the end of golden storytelling, because there is much more to discover in Pforzheim. For example, the Gasometer, which offers fantastic 360° panoramas on a variety of topics. Or the wildlife park in Pforzheim, with its 70 wild and farm animal species as well as forest climbing garden, which is particularly popular for young people.
