Munich to Pforzheim
I am planning to visit Munich this May/June. What is the best way to visit Pforzheim? I checked the train schedule, it takes about 3 hours by train (one way) Should I do 1 day trip or should I stay for 1 day there? Is there a lot to see there?
Re: Munich to Pforzheim
Pforzheim is a nice town with an interesting jewellery museum, but I wouldn't go there for a day trip from Munich. However, that's just my personal idea. It can be done as a day trip, an early train in the morning and a late train back and you'll have several hours to spend.
What are you interested in? It's the gateway to the Black Forest, but without a car this is difficult on just one day. If you're planning to go to the Black Forest,this will be much easier with a car.
But again, from Munich it's quite a way, the Bavarian Alps are closer.
So it really depends why you want to go to Pforzheim. Have you looked at their homepage yet? You'll get some idea of what is there to see.
Re: Munich to Pforzheim
Thank you very much! I am mostly interested in Bohemian Garnet jewelry, but you are right, I will probably be better off renting a car with GPS.
Bavaria is the best, Alps and lakes, but I've seen them before...

A Wombat in Pforzheim
Beautiful spring weather invited us to go on a little excursion. We both had not yet been to Pforzheim before, so off we went.
Pforzheim is a modern city. World War II reduced it to ashes and rubble. There is hardly a city in Germany that suffered more damage in relation to its size. Most of the present architecture is post-war and as charming as what you see in the big photo. In my humble wombat opinion Pforzheim is a promising candidate for the title of Baden-Württemberg's Ugliest City.
However, these parts along the river are quite nice to walk or bike (or be carried by a walking human if you are as little as me). The white building is the theatre, by the way.
Pforzheim does have a lot of history but it takes some hard digging to find its traces. This here is about the only bit of old town that escaped the bombs. This group of buildings is the old centre of the village of Brötzingen, now a quarter in the west of the city. The old village church, the adjacent parsonage and a handful of other buildings are now used by the historical museum.

I only spent last Sunday evening in Pforzheim after watching the All Ireland Hurling finals in Heidelberg.
Didn't see much of the town but got a thorough appreciation of the Hill upon which the Bahnhof is located.
