Definitely fly into Frankfurt as that is closest to Bruchsal.

You can find timetables for trains to Bruchsal here:
http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

From: FRA
To: Bruchsal

Yes, take the German Railway.
On their web site you can inquire almost any connection.
In the above mentioned search form (http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en) you can enter detailed addresses and stop-overs too. And in their train selections local transport often is included too.

For more info about fares and maybe special offers, you can also start at their main page:
http://www.bahn.com/i/view/GBR/en/index.shtml
(it also is possible to choose e.g. USA or overseas as country from which you will come in from abroad and from where you perhaps even want to book your trip in advance.)

If you fly to Frankfurt make sure to fill in "Frankfurt(M) Flughafen" in your query on www.bahn.de as the fast ICE train starts right at the airport. So you do not have to take the local train (S-Bahn) to the main railway station first but go straight through to Mannheim from the airport and change to the local train (S-Bahn) in Mannheim. Just this one change, really as easy as convenient.

FRA is sufficient for Frankfurt Airport.

Best deal ticket wise will be a Rail&Fly ticket. Emirates is one of the airlines offering such tickets.

Travel Tips for Bruchsal

Recalling the 1st of March, 1945

by Kathrin_E

March 1, 1945 was a fateful, traumatic day for Bruchsal. An allied air raid destroyed about 80% of the so far unharmed town and killed more than 1,000 people, among them 668 citizens of Bruchsal, in one single night.

A memorial plate on the Southern wall of the castle keep recalls this event.

Turning Back the Clock: Klosterstraße

by Kathrin_E

If you overlook the modern cars, the general appearance of this street reminds me of what small towns looked like 50 or 100 years ago.

Note the tiny house with the shoemaker's shop. It was closed when I passed, but the sign on the door states opening hours, meaning that it is still in operation. I imagined a very old man working with his old tools in a little dusty workshop...

Baroque Military Barracks in Huttenstraße

by Kathrin_E

Being an independent territory, the Prince-Bishopric of Speyer had its own army. This impressive military force consisted of 350 soldiers. To accommodated them, Prince Bishop Franz Christoph von Hutten had new army barracks built East of the town in the street that was later named after him. Only the two buildings next to the street, which served as officers' quarter and administration, have survived the war.

SCHLOSS: Kanzlei (Office Building)

by Kathrin_E

The highest building on the other side of the street opposite the gate was built in 1729 as office building for the government. Today it hosts the local court.
The little tower on top contains a carillon.

SCHLOSS: Damianstor - Town Gate

by Kathrin_E

The construction of the palace added a whole new quarter to the existing town. This quarter had to be protected and included in the town's fortifications - as Bishop Damian Hugo himself wrote, this country saw war "every day and every hour". The road leading North towards Heidelberg needed a new town gate. It was named "Damianstor" after the bishop.
