Pforzheim, Germany – MUST EAT

Here are some typical dishes to try while in Pforzheim, Germany.

Kässpätzle: They are a type of egg noodle or small dumpling found in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. This food is generally made with just a few ingredients including flour, salt, and eggs though in some dishes nutmeg, dill or caraway is added.

We highly recommend trying it with grated cheese, frankfurter-style sausages, or fresh cherries and butter for a dessert.

Maultaschen: This dish is a traditional Swabian (Baden-Wurttemburg region) specialty that is rumored to be invented by monks on the Maulbronn Monastery.  It looks very much like Italian ravioli, only larger.

It is a square shaped pasta dough typically filled with minced meat, spinach, bread crumbs, and spices. They often pan fried, simmered in veggie broth, or dressed with butter and onions.

"Das Lamm" is my absolute favorite restaurant. 
It is in a small village near Pfzorheim called Zainen. 
The owners are former teachers and opened nearly 20 years ago. 
The ambiance is intimate and comfortable with sofas and extra 
tables in a separate room where you can relax after dinner or 
drink a quick cup of coffee. They offer a menu that changes 
weekly with two or three starters, three entrees (one is always 
vegetarian), and one dessert. You can be sure there will always be 
          something on the menu to eat!

Pforzheim is the door to the Black forest. It is the perfect place to take long walks and explore the surrounding area while you are visiting the city. The forest is beautiful and along the rivers you can walk or bicycle.
The town is situated in the middle between Stutgart and Karlsruhe, both bigger cities, that are worth a day trip .

In Dillweissenstein you will find a really lovely public swimming pool that is directly by the river. If you like to swim in the summer it would be a fantastic place to stop off.

Pforzehim has a history in jewellery, which has extended to modern day in both the school for goldsmiths and adjunct design school. The Jewellery museum is a one of the logical Must See destinations for this historical city. The museums’ collection ranges from ancient to contemporary but they all have one thing in common they are beautiful and priceless.
