Pforzheim is known as the “Goldstadt” (German for “Golden City”), because of its jewelry and watch-making industry. Pforzheim was founded as a Roman settlement known as “Portus” at the river “Enz” on the road connecting early Strasbourg and Cannstatt. Today it marks the border between Baden and Württemberg.
