Pforzheim is a city in the Black Forest in southwestern Germany.

It’s known for its jewelry and watchmaking industry, and for its Goldstadt (Golden City), due to the large number of goldsmiths and jewelers who used to live and work there. The city’s old town is a pedestrian zone, and its centerpiece is the Gothic St. Michael’s Church.
