Living in Pforzheim

Pforzheim is a city of 120,000 people in the Baden-Wurttemberg region of southwest Germany. It lies on the northern edge of the Black Forest, between Stuttgart and Karlsruhe, and is sometimes referred to as the “Gateway to the Black Forest”. Because of its world-famous jewelry and watch-making industry, it is also known as "The Golden City" and the Jewelry Museum in the Reuchlinhaus is a popular local attraction for expats living in Pforzheim to explore. Its position at the confluence of the Enz, Nagold and Wurm rivers and on the edge of the Black Forest has also made Pforzheim a popular center for tourists. This active industrial area has long attracted many international settlers and expats living in Pforzheim will find that the forums of InterNations provide an ideal platform to connect and share information about the city.

Moving to Pforzheim

The closest international airport to Pforzheim is Stuttgart International Airport, which is 50km to the southeast. Baden Airpark at Baden-Baden is 63km to the southwest and also has domestic and some international connections. Pforzheim is connected to the national road network via the A8 Federal Freeway and Interstate roads B10, B294 and B463. The city also has three train stations, with excellent national services and local routes into the Black Forest. Pforzheim was significantly damaged during the Second World War and was extensively rebuilt in the 1950s. This means that there is a good stock of modern housing and many pleasant suburbs. To find more inside information, new expats moving to Pforzheim can consult their peers on InterNations, where global minds gather to share their knowledge, network and socialize.

Working in Pforzheim

Pforzheim has long been a center for jewelry and watch making and this industry still employs some 11,000 in the city. Around two thirds of jobs, however, are in the metalworking, dental and electronics industries. And expats in Pforzheim will also find a number of large mail order companies have bases in the city. The Goldsmith and Watchmaking Vocational School in Pforzheim attracts many international students to the city and further enhances the cosmopolitan atmosphere. With such a wealth of opportunities, it can be difficult to keep on top of developments but the online community at InterNations is a great place to keep up to date. Expatriates working in Pforzheim can meet here to share information and perhaps even forge new business relationships and uncover professional opportunities. This online resource is complemented by our Expat Magazine, which contains a wealth of information on the challenges and joys of expatriation.
