Membership of the Anglo-German Club Pforzheim is open to all speakers of English.
All members of the community are welcome, there are no age restrictions and our members come from a wide variety of professions and backgrounds.
However, a good command of English is necessary in order to fully enjoy the benefits of membership.
The majority of our members live in the Pforzheim and Enzkreis areas of Baden Württemberg. About half of us are German and the other half British.
