welcome to 

Pforzheim and the Enzkreis!

Urban, close to nature and sincere - that's the city of Pforzheim and the Enzkreis. The two districts are located in the Northern Black Forest region in the heart of Baden-Württemberg, between Stuttgart and Karlsruhe. The Enzkreis encloses the city of gold Pforzheim and consists of 28 towns and communities.

Our strength lies in our diversity. We are a sought-after business location and a popular place to live at the same time. Urban life pulsates in our cities, while centuries-old traditions are cherished only a few kilometers away in cozy half-timbered villages.

Here you can experience pure nature and culture, relax and enjoy the Baden-Württemberg way of life. 

We are looking forward to your visit!
